2015 Honda Interstate®

Interstate (VT13CT)

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 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 1,312 cc 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.

Color-Matched Frame

  • The Interstate's color-matched frame really gives this bike a finishing, custom touch.


  • Meets current EPA standards. California version meets current California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards and may differ slightly due to emissions equipment.

Heel-Toe Shifter

  • A handy, 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.

Low-Slung Saddle

  • Measuring in at a low, easy-to-get-the-boots-down-when-stopping 26.8 inches, the Interstate's wide, cushy seat not only enhances the comfort level, but the styling as well.

Matte Black Fork Covers

  • Custom bikes can never have too much style, as the Interstate illustrates perfectly with its matte black fork covers.

Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)

  • Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Interstate's fuel-injection system means no-hassle start-ups on cold mornings or at high altitudes, and optimal performance in any condition.

Shaft Final Drive

  • The shaft final drive is quiet, clean and has been uniquely integrated into the overall design.

Which State Is Your Favorite? How About All Of Them.

  • Sure, the Interstate is a stunning motorcycle to look at. Better still, since it’s a Honda, you know the beauty runs much deeper than just the surface. Because the Interstate showcases plenty of Honda engineering and innovation with features like its beefy 1312cc 52º V-twin with Programmed Fuel Injection and its smooth, maintenance-free shaft drive. A plush, deep-dish saddle, full-size floorboards and a custom touring windscreen make all-day cruising a breeze, while roomy saddlebags let you pack enough for … well, that’s completely up to you.


  • The stylish custom windscreen keeps wind and weather at bay, ensuring both rider and passenger cruise in ultimate touring comfort.
