Grabs your attention...and never lets go.
It’s only natural to fixate on things of beauty, so don’t panic if you catch yourself gaping the first time you lay eyes on the Stateline. Maybe it’s the classic lines and progressive retro-styling. Or the blacked-out cylinder fins surrounding that massive 1312cc V-twin. Or perhaps it’s the machine’s long, low-slung profile, perfectly accented with swept-back bars atop raked-out forks and full-size fenders spooning fat front and rear tires.
Or maybe it’s simply the combination of all these things. True beauty can be hard to define. It’s even harder when, like here, it leaves you speechless.
Thoroughly Modern Classic: Fuel-injected and featuring three valves per cylinder, the Stateline’s mighty 1312cc 52º V-twin is the perfect fusion of retro design and current-day engineering.
Eye Candy: The Stateline is brimming with stylish accents, and none more so than its tank-mounted speedometer, nestled inside a gorgeous, specially designed chrome housing.
Brake Time: The Stateline features A 336mm front and a 296mm rear disc brake and the option of Honda’s Anti-lock Brake System. That makes for powerful, sure stops. Because you never know what the open road is going to throw at you.

- 2-into-2 Exhaust System: The Stateline's 1312cc V-twin engine features a beautiful two-into-two exhaust system. It not only looks great, but it sounds even better.
- Five-Spoke Cast Wheels: Silver-finish five-spoke wheels never go out of style, are easy to keep clean, and just plain look right on a sharp, contemporary cruiser like the Stateline.
- Wide, Low-Profile Tires: Big, fat, and bad to the bone, the Stateline’s wide, low tires do more than just look good—they are the basis for the Stateline’s excellent handling—exactly what you’d expect from a Honda cruiser.
- Retro-Progressive Styling: Like its Sabre and Fury cousins, the Stateline, with its chopped dragster look, beefy V-twin and long, neo-design fenders, is one of the most authentic, radically styled custom motorcycles that Honda has ever produced.
- Full Valanced Fenders: Those long, full-coverage fenders with their deep side valances are purely modern, but pay tribute to some of the classic cruisers of old. That combination of classic and new is what the Stateline is all about.
- Low-Slung Saddle: Measuring in at an ultralow 26.7 inches, the Stateline's wide, one-piece, deep-dish seat not only beefs up the comfort level, but the classic styling as well.
- Tank-mounted Instruments: Part of the Stateline’s super-clean look comes from mounting the instruments in a streamlined, modern tank nacelle. It completely opens up the handlebar area, yet still gives you all the information you need.
