History

During the 2000 bike show season, Honda began showing a prototype sport tourer called the X-Wing which featured a V6 engine, single-sided front and rear suspensions and an automatic transmission. Speculation in the press that the X-Wing was the ST1100's replacement was partially confirmed when Honda introduced an all-new Pan European in Europe and Australia for the 2002 model year. For the U.S. market, the new bike would be imported in limited numbers (about 500 per year) starting in 2003 as the ST1300.

Features

The new ST incorporates many of the X-Wing's sleek lines but none of its running gear. Power comes from a lower-slung 1261 cc V4 engine mounted as a stressed member in a lighter aluminum frame. A major difference from the ST1100 is the use of balance shafts for smoothness, allowing the engine to be directly mounted to the frame. The rear wheel is driven through a cassette-type five-speed transmission and the familiar shaft drive. The revised engine layout and a split fuel tank shift some of the weight downward, making the ST1300 less top-heavy than its predecessor. A long list of minor differences improve on the ST1100's already excellent comfort, handling and performance. Honda's well-regarded ABS package continues to be an option on the ST1300, although this version does not include a traction control system. In 2002 and 2003, models with ABS included an electrically-adjustable windscreen which became standard equipment in 2004.

Problems

Riders of the 2002 model reported a severe wobble at speeds above 160 km/h (100 mph), a problem which Honda considered serious enough to halt production of 2003s. The problem was eventually solved, the 2002s were recalled for a replacement of some chassis parts and the fix was applied to early 2003s. Other than the wobble and some complaints about the amount of heat reaching the rider at high temperatures, owners with 80,000 km (about 50,000 miles) on their ST1300s have reported the bike to be solid and reliable.
