The Honda ST1300 is a fully-faired touring motorcycle which proves that
the performance that comes with a sport bike and the luxury associated
with a long-distance tourer aren’t mutually exclusive goals. In fact,
they can coexist quite happily on one motorcycle, and the ST1300 ABS
proves it. This is a great bike for those who want to ride many miles in
comfort and security without sacrificing bad-boy power and performance.
Features & Specs
A low-slung, liquid-cooled 1261cc V4 engine mounted directly to the
frame powers the Honda ST1300, and it features excellent front Dual
Hydraulic Disc brakes. It manages to be less top-heavy than the ST1100
(its predecessor) by virtue of a split fuel tank and a revised engine
layout, which shift some of the bike’s 630lbs downward. Comfort and
accommodation are important as well, which is why this bike features a
comfortable standard riding posture and hard saddlebags.
Background & History
The X-Wing sport tourer prototype, which boasted a 1500cc V6 and
automatic transmission, was first unveiled in the 2000 bike show season.
It was widely rumored to be the successor to the ST1100, and this was
confirmed as many of the bike’s features were eventually incorporated
into this model. It was first available for sale as the Pan European in
Europe and Australia 2002. In 2003, Honda released the motorcycle in
North America as the ST-1300.
