You won't believe how fine this machine is out on the big road (or the back road). Smooth, quiet, fast, great wind protection, for those seeking long-distance comfort along with exemplary engine performance and superior handling, Honda presents the ST1300 Sport Touring motorcycles which earn high marks from riders all around the globe.Call them bikes that perfectly fill the gap between Hondas flagship Gold Wing tourer and their CBR liter bike and you wont be wrong as the ST1300 is simply a long haul motorcycle with sport bike expectations. With sleek, full-coverage bodyworks, an adjustable windscreen and removable luggage, these smooth and agile, V4-powered machines are also built to get the best out of that long way home.
Power is provided by a lower-slung 1261cc V4 engine placed on a stressed member in a lighter aluminum frame. What strongly differenced the new bike from the ST1100 was the use of balance shafts delivering smoothness and allowing the engine to be bolted directly to the frame. The all-new engine featuring a revised layout orientated the weight downward, resulting into a less top-heavy ST1300 than its predecessor. Great amounts of power reaches the rear wheel through a cassette-type five-speed transmission and shaft drive requiring low maintenance but ready to gather many miles.
