American Honda Announces Three Addtional Cruiser Models for 2011

February 3, 2011 – American Honda Motor Company announced today additions for the 2011 model year, which includes three cruisers: the Sabre, Stateline, and Shadow Aero machines. These returning motorcycles cap off a solid lineup for the current year.

Said Press Manager Bill Savino; “These 2011 machines will bring considerable depth and variety to our dealer’s showrooms this spring, and I’m pleased to say even more good news is in the works as we’ll begin to announce 2012 models shortly.”

2011 Stateline **
With long, low lines that embody the essence of cruising, the Stateline blends two worlds of motorcycling style: traditional looks plus progressive elements. The deeply valanced fenders arc downward for classic retro flair, yet the rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh, modern look to the class. A wider seat with more relaxed position and a longer, wider handlebar brings a more upright, easy riding stance for a traditional cruiser experience. The blacked-out engine treatment also helps make the Stateline its own machine. Add to that the deep throaty rumble of a big V-twin engine and that Vee power pulse, and there’s no question this machine is all about cruising.
**MSRP is $11,799

2011 Sabre **
Sometimes you just want to put out a more aggressive vibe, and that’s what the Sabre is for. The Sabre’s muscular pro-street style provides a classic ride, with ergonomics to match. The seat and handlebar yield a forward- leaning position for an aggressive riding stance to match to the Sabre’s custom cool persona. Also, a 21-inch front wheel and 15-inch rear wheel add to the bike’s bare-knuckle looks. Add an impressive 1312cc V-twin engine complete with Honda’s sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection, and you have a bike that’s as tough as it looks.
**MSRP $11,899

Shadow Aero **
Back for 2011 as a proven favorite, the Shadow Aero serves as a satisfying ride for a wide range of enthusiasts. Factor in the Shadow Aero’s classic retro styling, low seat height, power-packed V-twin engine now with sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection—at a price that’s right for today’s budgets—and you have the makings of a winner.
**MSRP $7999
