Standard Features

 Classic side mounted 3.7 liter airbox houses a high-flow viscous paper-type filter and adds that special styling touch.  
 Dual bore, 40 mm returnless-type throttle body fuel injection system with TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and ISC (Idle Speed Control). This is a "closed loop" system that utilizes an oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor feeds back info to the ECU which in turn adjusts the fuel/air mixture for maximum power with minimum emissions. The oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of slip-ons will not affect this system. Each injector features 12 holes and a dual spray pattern for better atomization and more complete combustion chamber filling. There is one injector per cylinder. Fuel injection benefits include improved fuel economy, chokeless operation, reduced emissions, and smoother running.  
 High pressure fuel pump is located in a separate sub tank below the seat.  
 2 into 1 exhaust system features a three-way honeycomb catalyizer at the entry point to the muffler. The catalyizer reduces harmful exhaust emissions, while the muffler produces a throaty V-twin growl. The rear portion of the muffler features a "slash cut" end.  
 Smooth-shifting, five-speed transmission with 5th gear overdrive delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speeds. The engine is spinning at 3,400 rpm at 110 km/hr.  
 Clean, quiet belt drive system is extremely low maintenance and simplifies customization. The belt is unique to the XVS1300 and features a carbon core for strength.  
 The seven-spoke rear pulley has been styled to match the cast wheels.  
 Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful exhaust emissions (CO + HC).  
 One piece classic heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience.  
 Electric starting system features a new mechanical centrifugal decompression device in the exhaust camshafts for easy, no-hassle starting.  
 Double cradle steel frame offers roomy ergonomics, and great handling. This frame utilizes a rigid engine mounting system to optimize the overall rigidity balance for superior handling. The rake is 32 degrees, while the lean angle is a sporty 36 degrees.  
 Steel swingarm matches the frame and provides superior performance in a wide variety of conditions, while also making a bold styling statement.  
 Long 1,690 mm (66.5 inch) wheelbase creates a long, low retro profile, solid stable handling and great roomy rider comfort. This chassis is longer than the XVS1100 by 45mm and offers a 48% / 52% front to rear weight distribution.  
 The long low design means spacious ergonomics with lots of leg room, which maximizes both rider and passenger comfort. Seat height is only 710 mm (28 inches) off the ground.  
 41 mm KYB front fork features stylish large-diameter covers. Wheel travel is 130 mm (5.1 inches) for a smooth, comfortable ride.  
 Monocross style, spring preload-adjustable, single-shock, link rear suspension centralizes mass for easy handling. The linkage system provides a rising rate effect that provides excellent compliance on both small and large bumps.  
 1,304 cc (80 cubic inch), liquid-cooled, short stroke, SOHC, four-valve, 60░ V-twin powerplant pumps out incredible amounts of class leading power and torque for unparalleled acceleration and cruising performance.  
 Rear shock is vertically mounted behind the engine and is tucked out of sight for that classic, hardtail look. Rear wheel travel is 110 mm (4.3 inches).  
 Liquid-cooling not only allows for higher state of tune because it maintains more stable operating temperatures, but also reduces mechanical noise especially from the valve train for a quieter engine.  
 Dual 298 mm, floating front two discs are squeezed by compact twin piston front calipers.  
 In an effort to maintain the classic air-cooled appearance of the engine, cooling fins have been added as a styling touch.  
 298 mm rear disc brake is squeezed by single piston caliper mounted to the underside of the swingarm. This design not only helps to hide the caliper but also lowers the center of gravity for better handling.  
 The short stroke engine design reduces the "height" of the engine, while the 60 degree "V" makes the engine more compact thereby centralizing mass and lowering the center of gravity for lighter more responsive handling.  
 Lightweight seven-spoke cast aluminum wheels are fitted wide tubeless tires. The new stylish wheels are both easy to clean and never require maintenance. The rear drive pulley matches the new wheels.  
 Classic V-twin "pulse feeling" and engine character highlight this new powerplant while annoying vibration has been eliminated.  
 Full-size, "tapered" floating-type rider floorboards are roomy and comfortably positioned while also helping reduce vibration. There is a replaceable "scraper" area on the lower edge of the footboard.  
 One-piece cylinder heads feature four-valves per cylinder to provide optimum breathing efficiency for maximum power output. Each head is fitted with a single spark plug.  
 One inch, rubber mounted handlebars are easy to reach and help to reduce vibration as well.  
 Stylish new chromed cylinder head cover.  
 Front and rear fenders are steel for easy customization and painting if desired.  
 The SOHC valve train features 36 mm intake and 32 mm exhaust valves with single springs for great power and torque. Valves angles are set at 20 degrees from centre. Specially designed roller rockers activate the valves. The rocker system allows a greater amount of valve lift without producing excessive camshaft wear and friction. The slipper portion of the rocker arm features a needle bearing to further reduce wear and slide resistance. The camshafts have been specially designed for use with roller rockers.  
 18.5 liter teardrop shaped fuel tank with flush mounted filler cap. Fuel tank seam is hidden for that clean, custom look. Reserve portion is 4.5 liters.  
 Optimized squish area forces the fuel/air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber for more complete combustion and hence improved power and cleaner emissions. Long reach spark plugs are utilized.  
 Generous rider and passenger seats offer plenty of room and support for all day riding comfort. Seat height is only 715 mm or 28.1 inches off the ground  
 The water pump is integrated with the oil pump is located inside the engine cases to keep a cleaner, more traditional air-cooled look to the powerplant. The engine is a wet sump design.  
 Handlebar-mounted chromed instrument features a stylish new design. Readouts include: analog speedometer, digital odometer, dual tripmeters, low fuel tripmeter, clock and low fuel warning light. Stylish red background illumination.  
 The radiator is mounted between the front frames down tubes to minimize its appearance especially when viewing the machine from the side. Even the rad hoses have been discretely placed for a cleaner appearance. An electric fan aids in cooling in stop and go traffic. Special cooling louvers direct air to the rad.  
 Handlebar switch gear allows the operator to change instrument meter functions via buttons on the back of the RHS handlebar switch, thereby eliminating the need to take your hands off the bars to adjust the main instrument functions.  
 Automatic hydraulic cam chain tensioner reduces mechanical noise.  
 60/55 watt high intensity headlight emphasizes the "wild streamline", mass forward styling design. The headlight is adjustable both up and down plus left and right via remote adjusters. There are also two 35 watt accessory light connectors inside the headlight shell for accessory passing lamps.
