cubic inches for the 1300

Got a question, what does the 1300 translate into cubic inches? A buddy of mine that I ride with just traded his honda vt 1100 for a suzuki c90T. I was trying to compare it to my 1300. I think his is 1500cc. The suzuki website just says 90 cubic inches. Thanks guys & gals.

I am pretty sure what you are talking about is the new name for the 1500cc Intruder LC.Don't let the cc's(or CI)throw you.The 1500 LC was a complete dog for power & handling compared to the 1300VTX.I had two of the LC's before the 1300's came out & spent a lot of time in 4th & sometimes 3rd to hold 75-80 when bucking a wind as well as wallowing like a pig in the corners.Anyone who wants a higher 5th gear in our 1300's should ride one of these to find out how much fun it is to have a bike that won't pull the hat off your head in certain(too often)conditions.

I ride with them all

I have ridden with everything from Harleys, Kawasakis, Suzukis, Yamahas, to most major models of the Honda such as old and new Gold Wings, VTX1800s, 750 and 1100 Magnas, Shadows, you name it.

The VTX 1300 is somewhere in the middle, not a racing bike, not a beauty queen, but offers some of the most desirable bike features.

As Dakota says, don't let the cc rating fool you. One of the fastest cruiser bikes out there now is the Magna 750cc. It will run with the best of them. Believe it or not, the VTX 1800 has to hump it to outrun one. 4 cylinders and 4 carbs make all the difference in performance. If they had a shaft, I'd be owning one today. 2003 was the last year they were made.

I'm happy with my almost stock 1300C and don't give much thought to speed, engine size or whatever.

While riding with other bikes, the VTX1300 keeps up with the pack and won't let you down. If my bike is ever too slow to keep up, I'll find other riding partners. The 1300's 110-115 mph is too much for me, unless on a flat straightaway without inlets.

Ride safely and enjoy YOUR bike. I certainly enjoy mine .

When the chips are down . . . . . the buffalo is empty!!!

Eddie, Did you figure that as 1300 or the actual size of 1312cc ? Rod

Just so you know...

For What It's Worth Dept.:
Here are the formulas:
Converting metric to SAE
Displacement in Cubic Centimeters X .0610 = cubic inch displacement Converting SAE to Metric
Displacement in Cubic Inches X 16.387 = cubic centimeter displacement

thanks guys,
My buddy called me last night and said he had just put a deposit down on the suzuki. He said they rolled it to the back to get it ready and he is going to take a check for the balance on Wednesday to pick it up. I've never owned a suzuki so I don't know much about them. Thanks for all the info. We don't ride that fast or anything I was just wondering how it compared to the 1300. I thought he was going to buy a 1300, but he obviously went with the suzuki.

I wouldn't worry about keeping up with your buddy on a ride, I have a good friend who I like to ride with that has a Kawasaki 1600 classic(nice bike) he has the 3" Hard Krome pipes & I can run right with him with no problems.When we both get on it they sound very much alike. Rod
