2007 Honda VTX™1800T

VTX™1800T

VTX power with touring capability. Even when you're not sure where the blacktop might take you, you know what it'll take to get there. A big pair of saddlebags, a large, protective windshield, a supportive passenger backrest, and a powerful presence that's sure to announce your arrival. Introducing the new VTX1800T with tank-mounted speedometer, mako-style muffler exhaust tips and cast aluminum wheels.

Additional Features:

  • Distinctive, chrome hooded-headlight housing features a powerful 55/60-watt halogen bulb with a computer-designed multi-reflector for superb lighting in all conditions.
  • Tank-mounted chrome nacelle houses the fuel cap, tripmeter / odometer reset and indicator / warning lights for the turn signals, high beam, neutral indicator, low fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature and fuel injection.
  • Extensive chrome-finishing of engine parts includes cylinder-head covers, valve inspection covers, spark plug covers, airbox cover, left crankcase cover, clutch cover and left-rear engine cover.
  • Spec 1 features silver finish on crankcases and cylinders; Spec 2 has a satin-black finish with milled fin edges that completes the custom look.
  • Large, distinctive speedometer with easy-to-read numerals.
  • Comfortably padded, large-diameter handgrips with smooth cast (Spec 1) or polished (Spec 2 ) aluminum handlebar switch-housings and triple-clamp assembly.
  • Reliable 300-watt alternator.
  • Durable, maintenance-free battery.
  • Handlebar switches and controls use internationally approved ISO graphic symbols.
  • Convenient push-to-cancel turn-signal switch.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • Massive tubular steel frame contains the engine's power and gives the VTX a long, low, muscular stance.
  • Large 45 mm inverted front fork provides 5.1 inches of plush yet responsive wheel travel.
  • Ribbed-design, chromed rear shocks with hairline satin-brushed top mounts have 3.9 inches of wheel travel and feature an advanced internal valve system for a comfortable ride.
  • The VTX's braking system features two three-piston front calipers and a single twin-piston rear caliper. Rider application of the front brake lever activates the two outer pistons of the front calipers. Application of the rear brake pedal activates the two pistons of the rear caliper and the center pistons of the front calipers. When only the rear brake pedal is used, an inline delay valve smoothes application of the front caliper center pistons.

Engine/Drivetrain:

  • Engine is a 1,795 cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin that hammers out immense power--106 bhp at 5,000 rpm and 120 ft.lbs. of torque at 3,500 rpm.
  • V-twin engine features 4-inch cylinder bores and the largest connecting rods and cylinders Honda has ever made.
  • Offset dual-pin crankshaft with two primary-shaft-mounted balance weights allows a high-performance engine design while eliminating harsh engine vibration. The result: muscular power across a broad rpm range for unequaled acceleration and roll-on performance.
  • The 41.4-pound forged-steel crankshaft uses bolt-on weights, reducing crankcase width nearly 2 inches and reducing crankshaft weight 8.8 pounds compared to a conventional one-piece design.
  • The engine mounting system uses carefully matched hangers and rubber mounts to eliminate unwanted vibration, while preserving the powerful character of the engine's V-twin design.
  • Each three-valve cylinder head features two large 36 mm intake valves and a huge 45 mm exhaust valve to produce optimum flow for the air/fuel charge.
  • Two iridium-tip spark plugs per cylinder for efficient combustion at all engine speeds.
  • Simple-to-service screw-and-locknut valve-clearance adjusters.
  • 4.5-liter airbox supplies a large volume of cool, clean air to the engine.
  • Advanced high-pressure programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) features 42 mm diameter throttle bodies delivering air to two specially designed Denso 50-psi high-pressure fuel injectors. Fuel is delivered through 12 nozzle holes in each injector, producing an atomized fuel mixture that is highly combustible for maximum efficiency and power.
  • ECU provides individual digital 3-D fuel-injection and ignition maps for each cylinder, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark advance settings for superb rideability.
  • A unique dry-sump oiling system utilizes a closed crankcase design and places the oil tank inside the gearbox case. The result is a freer-revving engine for improved power and a lower engine height, allowing optimum rider ergonomics and a low 27.4-inch seat height.
  • High-capacity radiator with cooling fan maintains consistent engine temperature for optimum performance and long engine life.
  • Maintenance-free automatic cam-chain tensioners.
  • Reliable electric-starter system.
  • Primary-drive gear uses a cam-type damper to minimize powertrain lash.
  • Sturdy, maintenance-free eight-plate hydraulic clutch with clutch-center damper ensures smooth gear shifting.
  • Five-speed transmission with carefully selected gear ratios for relaxed cruising and exciting roll-on performance.
  • Shaft final-drive system provides smooth, low-maintenance operation.
  • Driven-flange design at the final-drive gear eliminates final-drive noise and wear and simplifies rear-wheel installation.

New for 2007:

  • Stylish custom windscreen for rider and passenger touring comfort.
  • The 24-liter leather saddlebags provide ultimate touring convenience.
  • Chrome backrest for passenger comfort.
  • Exclusive Tourer badging on front fender.
  • The VTX™1800T is available in these exciting colors: Two-tone Black / Red, Two-tone Dark Blue Metallic / Metallic Silver and Black.

Unique Features:

  • Relaxed handlebar position and large levers contribute to the classic design.
  • Staggered dual exhaust with stylish slash-cut mako tips.
  • Fat 150/80 front tire on a 17-inch wheel gives the VTX a commanding profile.
  • California model utilizes an electronic control unit (ECU), closed-loop emissions system with two oxygen sensors to constantly deliver a precise air/fuel mixture while two exhaust catalyzers reduce emissions of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen to meet 2008 California Air Resources Board (CARB) emissions standards.
  • VTX1800T is available in two distinctive build variations: Spec 1 and 2.
  • Full-flowing, deeply valanced classic retro-style front and rear steel fenders.
  • Wedge-shaped mirrors offer an aerodynamic look.
  • Flangeless 5.3-gallon fuel tank offers excellent cruising range.
  • High-capacity radiator for optimal cooling capacity.
  • Chrome-plated VTX badge surrounds jet-black-filled graphics for a truly distinctive look.
  • Bullet-style turn indicators feature chrome visors, clear lenses and amber flasher bulbs.
