Honda Announces Four Returning 2011 Models

Stateline, Sabre, Shadow Aero and NT700VA

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Feb. 04, 2011
American Honda announced four more street bikes for 2011, capping off its lineup of 43 motorcycles.

Completing the 2011 Honda lineup are the Stateline, Sabre and Shadow Aero cruisers and the NT700VA sport tourer.

“The 2011 new-model rollout has been an exciting time for Honda and all motorcycle enthusiasts,” says Bill Savino, Honda Powersports press manager. “We’ve had a big year with many great models, especially the brand-new CBR250R and CB1000R, which have done much to round out our lineup. These 2011 machines will bring considerable depth and variety to our dealer’s showrooms this spring, and I’m pleased to say even more good news is in the works as we'll begin to announce 2012 models shortly.”

2011 Honda Shadow Aero

The Honda Shadow Aero gets a new fuel injection system with Honda’s PGM-FI system replacing the 2009 model’s 34mm constant-velocity carburetor. Honda also equipped the Shadow Aero with several chromed components and painted it in a new Candy Dark Red color. The 745cc V-Twin will carry a $7,999 price tag.

2011 Honda Stateline

The Stateline and Sabre return with new colors for 2011 but neither 1312cc cruiser will be offered with ABS which was available for the 2010 models for an additional $1,000. We contacted American Honda for a comment on why ABS will not be offered this year and are awaiting a response.

2011 Honda Sabre

The 2011 Honda Stateline will come in Metallic Silver and is priced at $11,799. The 2011 Honda Sabre will be available in Ultra Blue Metallic for $11,899.

2011 Honda NT200VA

Unlike the Stateline and the Sabre, the 2011 NT700VA will only be available in ABS (hence the “A” added to the NT700V). The 680cc V-Twin will be offered in Rich Pearl Black and comes with interlinked saddlebags. American Honda has not released a price for the 2011 NT700VA.
