2012 Honda ST1300 ABS Best Super Tourer

The Honda ST1300 ABS is aluminum frame combines optimal rigidity and tuned flex to produce excellent handling, with superb riding comfort and road feel. Lightweight, aluminum swingarm is carefully matched to the frame to provide an ideal balance of rigidity and tuned flex for optimal handling. Honda ST1300 ABS with Longitudinal engine mounting improves power flow and drivetrain efficiency, and two engine counterbalancers eliminate vibration for super-smooth long-distance touring. Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) delivers precise air/fuel mixture in all conditions, while dual exhaust catalyzers reduce harmful emissions.

The ST1300 ABS features a pair of locking, weather-resistant saddlebags. Better still, they lock on to the bike or pop off in seconds, making packing and unpacking easy and letting you ride without them if you're only headed out for a short trip. One size may not fit all, but the ST1300's got you covered.  It's easy to adjust the rider's seat to one of three heights, so you get a fit that's perfect for you.

ST1300 nobody understands V-4 engines like Honda. And the fuel-injected 1261cc engine found on the ST1300 is the stuff of legend, delivering power and performance honed from decades of innovative design. With a whopping 7.7 gallons of fuel capacity, you can ride the ST1300 just about as far as you want without having to worry if a gas station is open. Push-button, electric-motor-driven windscreen can adjust over a wide range of height (7.4 inch) and angle (13 degrees). Raise it for maximum wind protection on the highway, lower it for optimal airflow in slower-going city traffic.
