2008
MOTORCYCLES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN
ABOUT FREEDOM. The freedom to get
out into the wind and just enjoy life.
Whether it’s a Friday-night cruise down
WHY CHOOSE A VTX?
Riders have always
the boulevard, a Saturday-afternoon ride
chosen Hondas because they want to ride. Really
ride. They like the performance. The reliability. The
build quality. They know that a Honda is a bike you
with some friends, or that week-long
trip you’ve always wanted to take. Hey,
can rely on for decades, and thousands of miles.
it’s your dream—go where you want.
Our 2008 Honda V TX ® cruisers still offer all that.
Free yourself.
But along the way, we’ve added another feature:
drop-dead-gorgeous good looks.
It used to be you had to choose between performance and style. Between reliability and looks.
But with a Honda V TX, you can have it all.
Maybe you’re content to trailer your bike places,
or to just ride it ten minutes at a time and then
get off and pose. Hey, whatever turns your
crank—it’s your life. But when you want to
actually ride, well, then there’s only one choice.
2008
VTX1800N
With three models in
our VTX1800 line this year, the first
thing you need to do is learn which
is which. When it comes to the
VTX1800N, think N for Neo Retro.
Cast wheels land it solidly in the
modern camp when it comes to
performance. Straight-cut exhaust
tips with five-bolt caps do too. The
fenders are another unique styling
touch, and the two-piece seat looks
like it came right out of a custom
upholstery shop. The fat tires on
those wheels let everyone know that
this VTX is all business. It’s hard to
pin one style on this bike—it’s really
unique in the cruiser world. As with
all our 2008 VTX1800 models, the N
is available in two build levels.
VTX1800N
VTX1800N
VTX1800F
Like the way this one
looks? Well you’re not alone—the
VTX1800F is one of the most popular
machines in our cruiser lineup. We
think of it as a sport cruiser, and
after one ride you will too. Check out
the low, two-piece dragster-style
saddle with the removable passenger
section, the semi-swept high-rise
handlebar and the chromed twointo-two pipes. The headlight shows
its VTX heritage, but has a more
minimalist look. The LED brakelight
is recessed, while the bobbed front
fender and straight-cut rear fender
caress the 10-spoke racing-style
wheels and low-profile, high-performance radial tires. Available in two
build levels.
VTX1800F
VTX1800T
Motorcycles and road
trips just seem to go together. And
if you’re looking for the perfect
cruiser to do a little touring on,
think VTX1800T. Combine a VTX’s
power and torque with classic
touring-bike details like a cruiser
windscreen, leather saddlebags
and a passenger backrest, and you
have a VTX that’s perfect for
answering the call of the open road.
Available in three color choices
and two build levels.
VTX1300T
Ready for some great
news for 2008? Check out the new
VTX1300T. You’ll get big V-twin
power, but in a slightly smaller bike
at an even more affordable price.
Like the VTX1800T, the 1300T
comes with a classic cruiser windscreen, leather saddlebags and a
passenger backrest, along with
some special touches like unique
badging. Metallic Silver, Black or
Metallic Red, they’re all winners.
VTX1800T
VTX1300T
VTX1300R
You want style? Then
cast an eye over this beauty: the
Honda VTX1300R. Notice those
deeply skirted front and rear fenders,
the chrome-hooded headlight and
the broad fuel tank with the centermounted instruments? Nice. And
good looks are just the beginning—
what about that 1312cc 52-degree
V-twin engine? It offers a huge
wave of low-rpm power and torque
that just keeps building and building
as you twist the throttle. Power
and response? You got it with the
SOHC three-valve design. The
long-stroke layout and single-pin
crank deliver power you can feel and
hear, too. Staggered dual exhausts
have a throaty growl like a real
cruiser should. And when it comes
to a comfortable riding position, the
VTX1300R is all over that, too. Is this
your machine? We thought so.
VTX1300R
VTX1300C
VTX1300C
Only you can decide which Honda VTX is right for you, but the
Black, Metallic Silver and Candy Red. Plus a new color: Pearl Yellow. Like every VTX
VTX1300C is a great place to start—or to end up! Everyone agrees that it’s an awe-
in our lineup, the VTX1300C uses shaft final drive. Sure, it looks great, but it’s also
some bike. Check out its cast wheels and abbreviated, clean, street-rod-styled
clean, reliable and quiet. And then there’s Honda’s impeccable reputation for un-
fenders. Admire its shorty dual exhaust pipes—new this year with a different end
matched quality and reliability—no other brand of motorcycle can even come close
cut. Then take a look at the colors we have available. Pure classic here: Metallic
to that. The VTX1300C is a great choice for riders who want a bike they can trust.

SHAFT FINAL DRIVE
Clean, reliable and virtually
maintenance-free, shaft final
drive on a cruiser just plain
makes sense.
PISTONS
The VTX1800s
are big-bore powerhouses,
with pistons nearly four
inches across for plenty of
low-rpm torque.
FUEL INJECTION
Big
twins with carburetors can
stumble and lurch. Your new
VTX1800 uses fuel injection.
Problem solved!
THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE VTX
Our VTX1800 line features powerful liquid-cooled 52-degree
VTX BUILD LEVELS
Every 2008 VTX1800 is available
V-twins that pump out more than 106 horsepower and 120 foot-pounds of torque. The crankshafts alone
in two build levels. What’s the difference? It’s all about how
weigh more than 40 pounds. They’re awesome powerplants. Once you’ve ridden one it’s hard to go back
your VTX looks: the range of color choices, and how much
to anything less.
