About the 2012-2014 Honda Interstate

Featuring long, low lines that embody all the characteristics of a cruiser bike, the Honda Interstate blends two worlds of motorcycling style: traditional looks plus progressive elements. The deeply balanced fenders arc downward in classic retro style, yet the all-new rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh look to the class. 

The 1312-cc, V-twin, four-stroke engine gives this bike a deep, powerful voice and presence, but supplies moderate power, topping out at 74 horsepower at 5000 rpm and generating 91 lb-ft of torque at 3500 rpm. Third gear is the best passing gear at 55 miles per hour, while at speeds above 60 miles per hour; fourth gear provides the optimal horsepower.

The Honda Interstate offers a smooth yet powerful ride while remaining frugal with gas expenditure. The motorcycle is mechanically solid and highly reliable also, making it well adapted to regular driving. The seat is somewhat different from other motorcycles, requiring some mental flexibility to grow accustomed to, but is very comfortable for both short and long haul riding.

The motorcycle’s speed is kept in leash by a set of front and rear disc brakes, and there is also available an optional Anti-lock braking system. The Interstate will get you there in style and comfort, thanks to spacious saddlebags, full-size floorboards, and a large, custom windscreen.
