Honda concept: Stateline 'Slammer'

Slick concept bikes based on the new VT1300 cruiser

HONDA ARE testing the water with factory custom concepts.

Honda's American R&D arm has revealed three concept bikes based on the VT1300 range in an effort to show what customisers can achieve with the firm's latest cruisers.

It's not the first time the firm has done this and in the past similar efforts have led to production machines, notable the crazy Valkyrie-based Rune, which originated as one of three design studies which originally appeared as show bikes.

Here's what Honda have to say about the  2010 Stateline “Slammer” (Bagger)

Based on a 2010 Stateline, designer Erik Dunshee (Honda R&D Americas) reveals the life of low.  Fueled by elegance and power the Slammer sports a fully adjustable air-ride suspension, NAV/Multimedia, 10” subwoofer and 500 watts of power.  With a full front end conversion, including a lean 23“ custom wheel, the designer achieved all this without frame or engine modification.  Low has never looked so good.
