Let us simplify, 3 answers:
1.I would get VN2000, it is very interesting, because it has bigger engine.
2.VTX1800 is better because it is a Honda, I wouldn't choose VN2000 over VTX1800
3.I would get VN2000 only if I could keep VTX1800

After reading professional reviews , i found out that even with the bigger engine Kawasaki VN2000 still was no match to mighty VTX1800 . Honda motor was still better , handling and braking was better on a Honda as well . Everybody said if you still looking for more size , just go with Triumph Rocket III . Probably thats why VN2000 never stuck with the crowd . Looks is another thing , I love VTX1800 R/S/T sleek , artistic , classic lines from all angles . If you want VN2000 , just go for it and do what ever makes you happy . For me personally it's a VTX1800R/S/T and if thats not available i'd probably go with Yamaha Stratoliner Delux . I like Kawasaki Vaquero as well , but ergonomics are too cramped up for my tall frame .

To me, the sound of the engine/exhaust is a HUGE part of the experience. The advantage the VN2000 has is the single pin crank. If the VTX1800 had a single pin crank, I would have cut my losses on my 1300 and made the move. Because it doesn't, so I'm sticking with my 1300.

But, my next big cruiser will have a single pin crank, even if my only other option is a HD. It will be YEARS from now, I'm very happy with my 1300, and I have it setup for comfort.

You forgot #4. I am not interested in a VN 2000 or have an opinion about them. Not being a smartazz, just stating an opinion.
