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.
