2007 Honda VTX1300R, Strong & Smooth Ride. - The "R" stands for "Retro," and everything about the VTX1300R says classic, old-school cool. Custom cast wheels. Long, pullback handlebar and deep-dish seat. Dual exhaust with slash-cut pipes. New black faced tank-mounted speedometer. Buckets of chrome. And, of course, the mighty 1,312 cc V-twin that makes this whole show go.
