2006 Honda VTX 1800

Honda VTX 1800

Giant size, giant engine and giant cruising performance. Honda's attention-getting VTX sets the standards for both looks and performance in the litre-plus custom cruiser class, and gives you a thrill with every ride you take. Each cylinder of its beautifully styled V-twin engine carries a monstrous 101mm piston pumping out eye-opening thrusts of power that seems to leap for the horizon every time you open its throttle. Its quiet, maintenance-free shaft final drive keeps you rolling smoothly on down the road without a care in the world.

Every curve of the VTX is designed with a long and low look of performance, while sparkling chrome and metal brilliantly show off its eye-catching highlights. With a big inverted front fork combining with a dual-damper rear suspension to provide effortless handling and comfort on par with its prodigious power curve, is it any wonder that the VTX has been widely hailed as a rolling masterpiece of the cruising arts? Yes, the VTX may look big and mean, but once you're aboard and enjoying the exhilarating thrust that its big V-twin engine has on tap, you'll soon feel like nothing else in the world matters.
