2010 Honda VT1300 Sabre

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

The road is yours, so why not own it? The question in mind is, what to rip the road up with?

Well I'm thinking maybe a bike. Not a bicycle. I'm talking about a motorcycle. A bike that can take you 90 MPH down the road. You feel the wind through your hair.

There are many bikes to chose from. You have Harley's to Honda's. Many people always say, "always get a Harley bike."

It's an American bike. - With true horsepower. And it looks like a bike should look like. I'm not going to argue there. Harley's are king!

But I'm reviewing a 2010 Honda VT1300 Sabre, so sorry about that.
But hear me out anyway.
I think bikes are interesting. To me cars are too restricting. There is lots of freedom with bikes. You can feel the road. Even with cars, you can only feel so much road.
The bad thing about bikes are, true they are safer than cars one way, but if you get in an accident, chances of living are less than 20%. For cars, you have at least 50/50.
So when you buy a bike, get one that has a high rating for everything.
I'm going to repeat myself once more, get a bike that has full-on safety features. Make this your priority.
You'll thank me when you're safer when you might have been.

Overview -


-41mm fork with 4.0" travel.
-Single shock w/threaded-collar spring preload adjuster; 3.9" travel.
-170/80 x 15 -- 70.0", 33.0 degrees, 4.6" -- 26.9" -- 4.4 gal -- 664 lbs (679 lbs w/ABS).

Sabre's $11,799 MSRP.

The Good:

Colors - Candy Red, Black. One-year unlimited-mileage warranty. Great handle. Fair price. Nice to look at.

The Bad:

It's not a Harley, but o' well.

Overall rating of this product. Including cost, performance, brand. "5.0."

Comparing to other units, Harley's still better, but for a foreign bike, I like it!

I hate that they have recycled a name that once went with an actually good motorcycle.

The VeeFour Sabre (VF1100S) from the 80's.
Box stock 108HP and over 90ftlb of torque.

Find one and ride it.
Then you'll realize that what you really want to buy is an ST.

as to this thing?
If you want a Harley just get one.
