Honda VTX (V-Twin Extreme Information:
The Honda VTX (V-Twin Extreme) series is a line of V-twin cruiser motorcycles inspired by the Zodia concept that debuted at the 1995 Toyoko Motor Show. It got its start in 2001, launching 2002 models with the VTX 1800. Production ran from 2001 until 2008.
When it was introduced, the Honda VTX had the largest displacement production V-twin in the world, but it only held this distinction until 2004 when Kawasaki introduced the Vulcan 2000.
The VTX 1300 was introduced for the 2003 model year, which eventually became the VT1300C line beginning with the 2010 model year.
Both the Honda VTX 1800 and the Honda VTX 1300 have a 52° V-Twin layout, cylinder heads with two intake values than run into a single exhaust valve, radiator with cooling fan, dry sump oil system with the oil tank located inside the gearbox case, shaft final-drive, rocker arms with screw-and-locknut clearance adjusters, two spark plugs per cylinder, and an electronic control unit with 3D ignition maps for each cylinder.
