You start off in a hurry. As the kilometres roll by and the big V-twin engine rumbles its soothing rhythm, a feeling of peaceful contentment washes over you. You slow down and soak in the sights, smells and sounds. Suddenly you realize it: There's no place you'd rather be than right here, right now. Touring on the Honda VT1300CTA Interstate has just that sort of calming effect on riders. Its relaxed riding position, clear view through the custom-styled windshield, and confident road-holding encourage you to enjoy the journey, while its 1,312 cc V-twin engine with Honda's Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) can also get you there quickly, if you really want to. And for 2011 the Interstate boasts Honda's Combined Braking System with ABS for extra peace of mind.

S 1,312 cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin delivers strong low-end and midrange torque, with ample power for passing and relaxed cruising.
S Powerplant design features special camshafts and a single-pin crankshaft to accentuate the engine's character.
S Dual two-axis primary counterbalancers help to minimize harsh engine vibration without eliminating the powerful pulses transmitted by the traditional V-twin design.
S Each three-valve cylinder head features two 31 mm intake valves and a large 40 mm exhaust valve to produce optimum flow for the incoming air/fuel charge.
S Simple-to-service screw-and-locknut valve-clearance adjusters.
S Programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) contributes to strong engine performance and low emissions.
S Electronic control unit (ECU) provides 3-D ignition maps for each cylinder, creating ideal spark advance settings for superb rideability and efficiency.
S Two spark plugs per cylinder for efficient combustion at all engine speeds.
S A unique dry-sump oil system utilizes a closed-crankcase design and places the oil tank inside the gearbox case. The result is a freer-revving engine for improved power and a lower engine height.
S Five-speed transmission with carefully selected gear ratios for exciting roll-on performance.
S The compact radiator is tucked neatly between the frame's front downtubes for a clean look without hampering cooling performance.
S To maintain the remarkably uncluttered look between the front cylinder and the front downtube/radiator area, the top radiator hose is hidden away beneath the front valve cover.
S Automatic cam-chain tensioners reduce maintenance requirements.
S Reliable electric-starter system.
S Shaft final drive for smooth, low-maintenance operation.
S Sturdy clutch utilizes a rubber clutch-centre damper to ensure smooth and quiet shifting.
