Yes Honda detuned the CTX1300 to about 75-80 HP the ST1300 was about 125HP it was a rocket.
I'm only guessing at the HP numbers but I'm close.

Wow, wonder why. It's still VERY fast. Does 0-60 in 4 seconds.

If I remember right the CTX 1300 still had a lot of torque

Oh that V45 Magna reminds of the one I used to own! Exactly like it. It was a freaking ROCKET. I rode that bike faster than any other bike I've ever owned or will own. Had it up to 125 and it still had throttle left. It was nimble and agile and a blast to ride. Great memories. And that VF750 looks like it could do some serious damage too. Pretty!

Had one too! Mine was black. Wish I never sold it. Funny thing, I occasionally check craigslist to see if I can't find a mint condition V45.

2013 XJR 1300... Old school styling, great fun to ride. Both bikes very different but great fun in their own way.
