2005 Honda XL1000V Varadero

Honda's class-leading Adventure Touring flagship, the mighty and majestic XL1000V Varadero, opens up a whole new world of riding frontiers to give you the most far-ranging blend of motorcycling enjoyment you've ever had the pleasure to experience. Powered by a slim, high-performance fuel-injected 1000cc V-twin engine and ruggedly outfitted for long-distance expeditions over virtually any road you might encounter, the XL1000V Varadero feels just as strong and confident sailing down the motorways as it is exploring less travelled backroads in your search for new adventures.

Its broad, windbreaking fairing, progressive long-travel suspension and comprehensive accommodations for two ensure exceptional riding comfort. And the XL1000V Varadero's easily attached optional luggage system makes longer trips as easy to prepare for as pack, snap on and go. The XL1000V Varadero is also available in an ABS version that complements its responsive Dual Combined Brakes with the confident control of the world's most advanced motorcycle Antilock Brake System for smooth and swiftly effective stopping control in virtually any road and riding conditions, and a much-appreciated boost in operating confidence when roads turn nasty.
