I'm looking for a motorcycle with ABS brakes and in my area there are quite a few vtx 1300s for sale. A few of them (2003 and a 2006) say they have ABS brakes, so I'm just trying to confirm that as I'm having trouble finding information in it. Figured who better to ask then actual owners.

Thanks in advance,

Josh

The VTX line has a lot of bang for your buck, but ABS costs a buck fifty. So Nope.

Here is a link that has a lot of info about the 1300's

VTX1800's are linked but not ABS
Honda VTX 1800F

If you get a 1300 anyway, welcome to the forum.

Maybe a Fury would work for you. They were offered with ABS.

May I ask why ABS is so important to you? Serious question, I’ve never driven a bike that has it.

Mine is an 04 1300S and no ABS brakes and to my knowledge, the 1300's didn't come with them.

The 1300 has old school ABS - a front brake so weak that it is hard to get it to lock up ! In the dry, anyway.
