Honda International Bikes: VTX1300R

Honda VTX1300R: Cruiser Motorcycle

Price: Starting from $9,999

It’s not easy categorizing a motorcycle as classically cool and feature-packed as the VTX1300R, so we like to go with performance-retro. Take a closer look and we think you’ll agree. Check out the burly 1312cc V-twin engine and staggered dual exhaust complete with mandatory throaty growl. Now shift your gaze to the deeply valanced fenders, chrome-hooded headlight, tank-mounted instruments, pullback handlebar, and floorboards with an old-school heel-toe shifter. All that, and Honda’s incomparable fit, finish, and overall quality. This is one great bike!

Quotes from Book: "BAI, BAIKO, CALENDAR"

१. दात जिभेला म्हणतात,
 'हम बत्तीस तू अकेली, बसी हमारी माय..
 जरासी कतर खाउं तो फिर्याद कहां ले जाय?'
त्यावर जीभ म्हणते,
 'मानती हुं मैं अकेली, तुम बत्तीस, बसी तुम्हारी माय
जरासी तेढी बात करूं तो बात्तीसही गिर जाये.'
