The King of the Adventure Tourers

Featuring a host of new design innovations, Honda's dynamic XL1000V Varadero reasserts its leading position in the exciting world of Adventure Touring. The new 2007 Varadero features detailed enhancements to its intrepid looks, improvements to its riding accommodations that significantly enhance its long-term ride quality and operating convenience, as well as ensuring full compliance with the latest European EURO-3 exhaust emissions controls.

The majestic Adventure Touring Varadero offers an ever-expanding world of riding experiences and exhilaration that can carry one or two to the four corners of the continent and beyond world with supreme comfort, reliability and satisfaction. Its mighty power and strong, smooth acceleration come by way of a slim, high-performance fuel-injected V-twin engine that devours long distances and flies up steep mountain passes with equal ease and confidence.

The Varadero's distinctive, wide-coverage fairing offers comforting protection from the elements, while its supple, long-travel suspension systems smooth over any rough spots that touring travellers and backroad explorers may encounter. Longer trips can also be easily prepared for with the addition of its optional luggage system, which offers easy clip-on mounting and key-locked security.

The Varadero is also available in an ABS version that complements its smoothly responsive Dual Combined Brakes with the confident control of Honda's most advanced motorcycle Antilock Brake System. With a list of well-considered design attractions and a slightly slimmer, more accommodating form in its seating area, the new 2007 XL1000V Varadero is set to continue its reign as the King of Adventure Touring by providing a more fulfilling answer to the siren song of the open road.
