The bike is stunning in every aspect. I love the styling and stance; the handling and power are great as well. It is such a blast to ride and I have no complaints!! Great job Honda...

After riding a Harley for six years I wanted a new bike. I was considering a Road King but didn't want to spend the money. A friend recommended going metric. I never thought I would but after buying my VTX 1300S I fell in love. The bike handles great, the power is there when you need it and the bike is all around fun to ride. Best of all, the price was great and I still have everything the Road King would have had. I would recommend this bike to anybody.

I purchased the bike in August 2007; it was brand new, unsold dealer inventory. I had begun riding again early in '07, at 50 years old, after a thirty year break. When I bought the VTX 1300S, I was moving up from a 2003 Shadow Spirit 750, which I bought in April '07. I have thoroughly enjoyed the... read more
I purchased the bike in August 2007; it was brand new, unsold dealer inventory. I had begun riding again early in '07, at 50 years old, after a thirty year break. When I bought the VTX 1300S, I was moving up from a 2003 Shadow Spirit 750, which I bought in April '07. I have thoroughly enjoyed the 1300S. It is surprisingly nimble for a large bike, and is well-built for highway and bi-way running. It handles well in all situations. The K&N air filter, and idea I received from another rider's review, truly adds to its throttle response and gas mileage. The bike's engineering is solid, and maintenance requirements are very reasonable. My only criticism is that the rear passenger gets a bit of wind buffeting over 50 mph, even with the 21 inch tall windshield; yet that's probably unavoidable on any cruiser. I highly recommend this motorcycle to anyone. It is an absolute joy to ride!

I bought this bike the first part of June 2007. Wow! What a sweet machine. I have logged 4500 miles on this bike and love everything about it. Balance and weight distribution are excellent. It is not a sport bike but has plenty of power. Lots of aftermarket goodies are available - what more could you ask for? Honda quality and a good price. I am a little unhappy with the chrome being plastic but like I said there are lots of aftermarket goodies. A true cruiser! Sure glad I didn't buy the Road King.

Purchased the 2006 VTX new in July 2007. Wow, what a machine! Plenty fast, rides great, handles great, looks sharp! Had V & H Pipes installed - people ask if it's a Harley. Only minor complaint is a slight hesitation occasionally upon acceleration. I also had the dealer install Memp. Shades windshield, backrest, rear rack, crash bars & highway pegs. My wife and I can't ride often enough, it's such a pleasure to ride!

I purchased a new 2006 VTX1300S about a month ago and have about 1100 miles on it. This is my first time riding a street bike. I took the MSF new riders course before the purchase. I have been on city streets and country roads and the bike performs and handles very well. don't let the weight scare you. It has a very low center of gravity and the extra weight helps on the highway. It turns very easily and goes faster than I need it to. Not a lot of vibration that I have noticed at 75 to 80 mph. All in all it is a great first motorcycle and you won't be wanting to upgrade anytime soon.
