2013 Honda Sabre
Stock Image: Black
Cuts like a knife.
Pro Street dragster or boulevard bad boy? How about a heaping dose of both? That’s the Sabre for you, a sleek, modern-day custom owing a sizable nod to the stripped-down styling of the Fury while also carving out its own, very unique place in the Honda Custom lineup. Just check out the crisp, clean lines, sporty, minimalist fenders, tall, 21” front tire, raked-out forks and low, aggressively set bars. And let’s not forget the brawny 1312cc 52º V-twin engine responsible for putting all this wickedly cool style in motion.
The 2013 Sabre. Stare all you like. Just don’t be surprised it’s not afraid to meet your gaze.
V-twin Harmony: Packed with plenty of power and torque, the Sabre’s 1312cc, 52º V-twin engine boasts a single-pin crankshaft that helps deliver that inimitable V-twin pulse and sound.
Sharp-Dressed Man: The Sabre simply screams Pro-Street style, from its short, sporty fenders and raked-out fork to its stripped-down, color-matched frame and dragster-like handlebars.

- Five-Spoke Cast Wheels: Silver-finish five-spoke wheels never go out of style, are easy to keep clean, and just plain look right on a sharp, contemporary cruiser like the Sabre.
- Wide, Low-Profile Tires: Big, fat, and bad to the bone, the Sabre's wide, low tires do more than just look good—they are the basis for the Sabre’s excellent handling—exactly what you'd expect from a Honda cruiser.
- Color-Matched Frame: The Sabre's color-matched frame really gives this bike a finishing, custom touch.
- Trim Front and Rear Fenders: The close-fitting front fender along with the bobber-style rear give the Sabre a look all its own and set it apart from other models in our 1300 cruiser lineup.
- Low-Slung Saddle: Measuring in at a low 26.9 inches, the Sabre's wide, plush, one-piece seat not only dials up the comfort level, but the bold, Pro Street styling as well.
- Tank-mounted Instruments: Part of the Sabre’s super-clean look comes from mounting the instruments in a streamlined, modern tank nacelle. It completely opens up the handlebar area, yet still gives you all the information you need.
