The biggest, baddest cruiser Honda has ever produced, WITH A PAINT JOB TO MATCH. the VTX is powered by a 1795cc V-twin with 106 horsepower and 120 pounds-feet of torque. With an exhaust valve bigger than a P-51's and an 18.8 kilogram crankshaft, the VTX is the King Kong of performance cruisers. Combining the tank-mounted chrome instrument housing - featuring the speedometer, odometer/tripmeter, aviation-style fuel cap, and indicator lights - and the flared, valenced fenders of the 1800R with classic spoked wheels, the 1800S is the traditional VTX. A low-profile 170/80-15 bias-ply rear tire combines with the wide-footprint 150/80-17 front for the ultimate retro VTX. Styling from the '50s. The power of the 21st century. Full-flowing deeply valanced front and rear steel fenders, chrome-hooded headlight, broad fuel tank with tank-mounted instruments, pullback handlebar and floorboards with heel-and-toe shifter create a classic retro style that puts the VTX1800S in a class of its own. Staggered dual exhausts. Spoke wheels with bias-ply tires offer a classic look.
1795cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin produces immense power--106 bhp at 5000 rpm and 120 lb./ft. of torque at 3500 rpm. Engine features 101mm cylinder bores and the largest connecting rods and cylinders Honda has ever made. Offset dual-pin crankshaft and two primary-shaft-mounted counterbalancer weights allow a high-performance engine design while eliminating harsh engine vibration. The result: muscular power across a broad rpm range for unequaled acceleration and roll-on performance. Seat boasts a low, 698mm (27.5-inch) height for confidence during low-speed maneuvers. Retro-styled front and rear fenders complement the VTX's classic cruiser styling.
