The 1312cc powerplant of Honda's new mid-sized cruiser trio will easily motor riders over any hill.
The Honda Interstate allows a fairly generous amount of lean angle before riders start scraping floorboards.

The Sabre sports a 90mm thin and 21-inch tall front hoop which helps distinguish itself from the other two.
