I don't think you can really compair the 1300 & 1800, two different animals and since I have a 1300 I can only speak to that bike. I bought my new in 2004 and still have it.
Pros - Excellent bike for the money I paid for it brand new.
Balanced well, handles great in all kinds of roads.
Not designed to be a "fast" bike however it has plenty of power when you need it.
Good gas mileage.
easy to work on.
Cons - I wish it had duel front brakes like it's big brother the 1800.
