2015 Honda Interstate, 2015 Honda® Interstate Progressive Style For The Open Road
A cool, custom bike. The open road. And a week off. Does life get any better? Maybe—if that bike’s a Honda® Shadow® Interstate. With the Interstate you get the best of all worlds. For cruising or everyday riding, the Interstate has a clean, progressive style, plenty of motor and a look that’s going to make a big impression everywhere you ride. But add in a little vacation time and the Interstate is happy to stretch its legs and take you wherever you like, even if it’s a couple thousand miles away.
The Interstate’s 1312cc V-twin engine generates plenty of low-end torque for relaxed urban rides, but is big enough for multi-day trips on long highways or over mountain passes. Shaft final drive gives you a clean, crisp look on the street, but its maintenance reducing features are exactly what you want a thousand miles from home too.
Everywhere you look, the Interstate offers the details that set it apart: roomy floorboards, leather-clad saddlebags, custom windscreen. And best of all? A look nothing else can touch.
Features may include:
The stylish custom windscreen keeps wind and weather at bay, ensuring both rider and passenger cruise in ultimate touring comfort.
Custom bikes can never have too much style, as the Interstate illustrates perfectly with its brilliant, eye-catching chrome fork covers.
The Interstate’s color-matched frame really gives this bike a finished, custom touch.
A must-have for every long-distance machine: large, roomy floorboards, with vibration-absorbing rubber inserts to keep your size-12 dogs relaxed all day long.
- Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)
Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Interstate's fuel-injection system means no-hassle startups on cold mornings or at high altitudes, and optimal performance in any condition.
Powerful 1312cc, 52-degree V-twin engine with a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers has plenty of torque, and the feel only a V-twin can deliver.
A handy and old-school cruiser-style, heel-toe shifter is paired with the floorboards to make shifting through the gears a simple toe or heel tap away.
Measuring in at a low, easy-to-get-the-boots-down-when-stopping 26.7 inches, the Interstate’s wide, cushy seat not only enhances the comfort level, but the styling as well.
The shaft final drive is quiet, clean and has been uniquely integrated into the overall design.
