New Year's Cruiser Collection Features Mostly Returning Favorites
With summer fast disappearing in the rear view mirror, Honda has announced more models for its 2014 lineup. As you'll recall, most of the big news dropped last year, so there are no real surprises in this year's collection. Long-running favorites like the Shadow and 1300 Custom lines of cruisers as well as the iconic Rebel all make the scene here.
The following information is courtesy of American Honda:
Fury MSRP: $13,390; ABS $14,390
This radical 1312cc V-twin machine appears to be a way-out image from some custom bike builder’s fevered dreams. With its pure, undiluted chopper essence, this machine simply looks right, sounds right and goes straight to the heart of radical enthusiasts. Yet despite the extreme lines and head-turning looks, the Fury is backed up with the same fit and finish, functionality, affordability, quality and reliability built into every Honda. Colors: Black, Matte Pearl White/Red (ABS available in Black); Availability: January 2014.
Sabre MSRP: $12,250; ABS $13,250
Thanks to a powerful 1312cc V-twin engine incorporating Honda’s sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection, the Sabre not only fills the image of a tough ride cast in the classic role of a muscle-bound street rod, it also delivers in spades. Featuring performance-oriented ergonomics that are both functional and comfortable, the Sabre stands proud as a pro-street-style cruiser with an aggressive look and the credentials to back it up. Grab a Sabre and head out for the meanest streets. Color: Black; Availability: January 2014.
Stateline MSRP: $12,150; ABS $13,150
The Stateline is all about the right blend of traditional looks plus some styling flair to set things off. This bike mixes two worlds of motorcycling style with its deeply valanced fenders arcing downward in classic retro style, yet the rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh look as well. Add to that the deep rumble of a 1312cc V-twin engine and that classic big Vee power pulse, and you have a machine that’s the perfect choice for cruising. Color: Black; Availability: January 2014.
Interstate MSRP: $13,240, ABS $14,240;
It’s a joy to own a stylin’ ride that also owns the open road. And that’s what the Interstate is all about—a perfect blend of looks plus long-distance credentials. Check out those stylish hard leather bags that offer ample storage space and that big, traditional windscreen. We’re talking all-day riding comfort and convenience. Color: Light Silver Metallic; Availability: January 2014.
Shadow Aero MSRP: $8240, two-tone $8540, ABS $9240
An affordable and proven favorite, the Shadow Aero brings solid credentials as a stylish and fun ride, with a classic retro look, low seat height, power-packed V-twin engine with sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) and fine handling. Colors: Black, Metallic Silver/Pearl White (ABS available in Black); Availability: December.
Shadow Spirit 750 MSRP: 8240, Flame $8540, ABS $9240
The Shadow Spirit 750 C2 has long served as a machine that’s perfect for cruising city streets as well as exploring back-country roads. Thanks to its pronounced big-bike look, distinctive street-rod styling and a muscular V-twin engine—including the sophistication of Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)—this is a bike that goes as good as it looks. Colors: Ultra Blue Metallic Flame, Black (ABS available in Black); Availability: December.
Shadow Phantom MSRP: $8240
This is a bike that celebrates the joy of back-to-basics styling with an uncluttered appearance, while also delivering the essence of the V-twin experience. Credit that very cool 745cc V-twin engine featuring the convenience of Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) for its modern performance. With its low-profile approach, the Shadow Phantom reinforces the idea that bling ain’t everything. Colors: Black, Grey Metallic; Availability: December.
The Rebel remains a favorite among entry-level street riders, with its stylish good looks, its comfort, light weight and easy maneuverability. This is just about the best way to discover the fun and freedom you can find on two wheels, whether you’re scooting around town or heading out for an adventure.
