HONDA HAS LAUNCHED its first factory chopper, the 2010 Honda VT1300CX, described by the Japanese manufacturer as a 'milestone machine'.

Designed faithfully to the traditional chopper formula, the VT1300CX features a high-mount steering head that creates a 'see through' look to the frame.

A long, slim fuel tank, ultra-low seat, and a huge 200-series rear tyre is paired with a narrow 21-inch front wheel on a stretched wheelbase.

The front valve cover hides the top radiator hose - a feature Honda says is testament to the effort taken to maintain the open-air look of the front end.

Despite the traditional styling of the VT1300CX, Honda's technological prowess shines through in the form of the single-shock rear suspension system and aluminium swingarm.

Adjustable rebound damping and five-position preload adjustment provides a level of riding comfort that Honda claims is far beyond the norm for a chopper-style motorcycle.

A 45mm fork handles suspension duties up front, and braking is managed by a 336mm front disc and a 296mm disc at the rear.

Power is provided by Honda's 1312cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin engine, featuring a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers.

New camshafts and a newly designed exhaust system complements the muscular V-twin.

The 2010 Honda VT1300CX will be available nationally from December.
