Honda ST 1300 PAN EUROPEAN 2012

Because the owners of Pan-euro are more captains than pilots. statistics show that these are bikers whose average age and requirements invite them to leave the wooden boards of hypersports to curl up on machines whose degree of finish must be as high as the comfort.

The price is a slap in the face, its driving pleasure a delight. The ST is designed to ride well, for a long time, in serenity but without appearing like a retired motorcycle. The ST is positioned halfway between the VFR and the Goldwing, and it aims no more and no less to offer the advantages of both machines. Has she given herself the means? The 1300 Pan has increased its maneuverability thanks to a reduction in the wheelbase, but this poses a small problem: at high speed, the vessel lacks stability, the front straining somewhat; nothing dangerous but not very pleasant – a defect that the 1100 did not know. Admittedly, the customers of the ST are not adept at pushing it in its last km / h, but it emerges a slight feeling of frustration, a little taste of incomplete. But the 1300 regains its blazon in the small roads where it demonstrates an agility much superior to its predecessor, almost equaling the rigorous behavior of an FJR. There are several reasons for this: the chassis now consists of an aluminum frame whose design is close to that of a sports car and much lighter; the engine (still a V4) is advanced and contributes to the rigidity. The driving position has also changed. The rider is closer to the steering column, the handlebars are wider and closer. As on BMWs, the seat height is adjustable. A very pleasant addition. Well protected by the bubble that can be adjusted with precision and comfort, we savor the grand touring but we can not help wanting to have a little fun when the road is playful. Reassured by the ever so effective braking of the Pan, powerful and dosable (with C-ABS), we hasten to discover the engine, which has radically changed. Always so flexible (it resumes at 1500 revs on the last report), it seems to have vitamins in the pistons. He left the old 1100 in place and showed a vigor that was as useful as it was embellishing. It drives the motorcycle via a gimbal which, like the rest of the transmission, does not call for any complaints.

The design remains a matter of taste but concerning the ST, the Honda engineers designed it with a precise objective: to be beautiful (it is the case), and for a very long time, because the lady is expected to be produced for a decade. . This is the life that the 1100 had and it allowed the manufacturer to accumulate a lot of information. Reviews (good or bad) have guided designers to seemingly created a great model. Many details have been improved or even redesigned, the list of options has grown, the behavior of the machine and the engine are much more efficient (except at high speed). All this with a concern for the finish which remains faithful to Honda’s reputation for seriousness. Moreover, on the market when it first appeared, it had only one real competitor: the BMW R 1200 RT; which cannot compete in power but the match is not played on this ground. Today, with the R 1200 RT, K 1600 GT, and the craze for GT trails, the Honda is moving more and more towards a public of connoisseurs.
