Heavy but Nimble I have owned my '06 VTX 1800F Spec 3 for over a year and have loved every minute of it. Those who say it has power are severely underestimating this machine. This thing is a brute and nothing to date has been able to keep up. It eats other bikes for lunch, and you don't need to be a mechanic to own one. Just fuel it up and go. But be ready for the gas bill, because nobody can ride this thing with reservation. The amount of power this monster has is insane! The first time I got on the throttle I nearly fell off. I was not expecting that much torque. So if you're brave enough, go buy one and don't waste another day riding anything else. Reliability is top notch! Push the start button and it growls to life. Idle is smooth with a slight lope. You better bring ear plugs with the Vance and Hines Big Shots! My rear does get a little sore though after about an hour. I am still trying to decide what seat to buy. But between the looks, power and shear performance, this bike rocks. It is definitely not for the faint of heart. What are you waiting for? Join the fun!

I own a 2005 VTX 1800F...I use middle grade regular and average about 35 mpg. When I am out on the hiway I don't get the rpm's above 3000 and I get 42 mpg. If you ride it hard, like most of us like to ride, it gets hungry. Around town I like to show my stuff and it costs me at the pump. The only drawback is the seat. I bought a corbin young guns and now I can sit there for a five and six hour ride without crying. I bought this bike for the performance. Love this bike.

I have owned the VTX for over a year and have logged over 6000 miles. The bike is what it is, a good, reliable, power cruiser. It has tons of torque and good horsepower. The gas mileage is poor, 32mpg or less cruising and if playing, well you don't need to ask, it is much less. This may be due to the 110c.i. or 1800cc motor along with the fact that it weighs over 700 pounds. Little advice - don't drop it or you will be looking for someone to help you pick it up. I lost my balance backing it into a parking spot on a slight incline and almost dropped it once. It took all I had to save it and upright it. It handles like a Cadillac and slow speed turns require some skill and balance. Pros-reliable, looks good and sounds good with V&H pipes, fairly comfortable on long rides (I am comparing it to a GSXR) with lot's of aftermarket parts and accessories that don't cost an arm and a leg like HD. Cons-poor mpg, small fuel tank and range, handles ok at best, need the big motor to move that heavy bike what a pig, comfort not great especially if over 6 feet tall they do make forward controls but I didn't want to spend the money(because I want to sell it). If you are tossing around the idea of a V-rod, and have the money, do it. I am wishing I would have saved another year and bought that. Yes, I have ridden both and the Harley is way faster and more comfortable if you are taller in stature. It is also more agile as it weighs less. I have also heard good things about the reliability from that motor. Also this is my opinion (obviously) I am a sport bike rider converted to cruiser as most of my buddies now have HDs, or custom choppers, so my opinion of the performance may be somewhat biased and skewed given what I am used to. Overall, a great bike I would not buy again as there are many choices out there and you might as well get to ride as many as you can before you bite the big one. Be safe and ride it like you stole it.

I own a VTX Retro and love it, but the F model handles like a dream. It is crisp and responsive in the turns and the 1800 cc's roll power on so smooth that you hardly know you increased speed. The higher center of gravity allows for easy control in twisty-turnies, serpentines and decreasing radius turns with little or no effort. The bike comes back to center almost on its own. What a pleasure to ride.

Been riding since the late 70s and I've had all kinds of bikes. Recntly got interested in just cruising down the road comfortably. This is what the VTX 1800F does so well. It's big and heavy but well balanced so it handles better than you'd expect. Enough torque available at any speed under 100 mph to quickly get you around any hazards. The one downside is that this is a thirsty machine: the gas mileage isn't as good as some compact cars, maybe about 35 mpg.
