2006 Honda XL1000V Varadero

Honda XL1000V Varadero

The mighty and majestic Adventure Touring Varadero opens up whole new frontiers of riding freedom to give you the most far-ranging blend of motorcycling enjoyment you've ever had the pleasure to experience. Powered by a slim, highperformance fuel-injected 1,000cc V-twin engine and ruggedly outfitted for longdistance expeditions over virtually any road you might encounter, the Varadero feels just as strong and confident sailing down the motorways as it is exploring less travelled backroads in your search for new adventures.

The Varadero's broad, protective fairing, progressive long-travel suspension and comprehensive accommodations for two ensure exceptional riding comfort. And its optional luggage system is a snap to mount, making longer trips as easy to prepare for as pack, clip on and go.

The Varadero also comes 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 over virtually any road and riding conditions, and a much-appreciated boost in operating confidence when roads turn nasty.
