Honda ST1300

Hire our super luxury tourer. The Honda ST1300, an ideal motorcycle for eating up those long distances in comfort and style. Smooth V-four engine, just kick it into top gear and cruise off into the sunset. Once ridden, never forgotten, the Honda ST1300 is a big, impressive, solid tourer that just eats up the miles.

Trev (Mr Fix It) picked his up on a Thursday afternoon and clocked up over 3,000k by the following Monday, he grinned from ear to ear as he covered most of New Zealand in just three days!


It’s powered by a 1,261cc V-Four engine mated to a 5-speed transmission that powers the rear wheel with a shaft drive. A massive 7.7 gallon fuel tank feeds the engine, and combined with Honda’s EPA estimate of 35 mpg, produces a theoretical cruising range of well over 400km, not bad for a rental motorcycle.

Standard touring-friendly features include integrated, lockable and removable saddlebags, anti-lock brakes, and an electrically operated windshield. The front suspension offers 4.6 inches of travel, while the rear preload can be set using a dial just behind the engine.


Adjustable seat height, comfortable riding position, positive handling all help make this a true dream machine. So whether you’re riding two up on a three week tour or just want to have a couple of days fun the ST1300 is a great choice.


Did someone ask about torque?  Yep, it’s got heaps, bucket loads in fact.
