The King of the Adventure Tourers
The new XL1000V Varadero comes loaded with a host of new features that enhance its styling, convenience and long-term riding comfort for longer years of crosstown or cross-continent riding enjoyment.
New Instrument Panel
The Varadero's newly designed instrument panel features new dial designs for a more attractive look and easier recognition, and a new fuel mileage gauge that calculates remaining driving distance based on fuel volume and current fuel consumption.
New Locking Side Pockets
For added riding convenience, the Varadero's cockpit now features convenient new carrying compartments built into the sides of the cockpit area, which help keep needed smaller riding essentials within easy reach. As these pockets also feature locking lids, the security of these essentials when parked is also assured.
New Seat Shape
The Varadero's seat contours have also been carefully redesigned for greatly enhanced riding comfort for both rider and passenger over longer touring distances.
New Sidecover Panels
The Varadero's sidecover panels have been newly redesigned for more compact and stylish shapes that also lend easier access to hard-to-reach service points and other functional parts.
New Tail Cowl Design
The new Varadero also features a new, more sleekly designed tail cowl, which tapers with smoothly rounded rear contours into a large, fully integrated combination tail/stop light and clear-lens indicators for a more modern look and enhanced visibility from the rear.
New Tail Pipe Caps
The Varadero's prominent twin high-mount exhausts play a distinctive role in its impressive Adventure Touring design. Now these large stainless steel canisters receive a more cosmopolitan look with new decorative form-fitted end caps, which provide a stylish accent on the Varadero's intrepid go-anywhere design.
New Aluminium Undercowl
The Varadero's large resin undercowl has been replaced with a more sturdy new aluminium lower cowl that enhances protection of lower engine components while providing a more rugged look as well.
New HECS3 Low-Emissions System
In keeping with the latest in environmental protection laws and Honda's ongoing efforts to protect the air we breath, the Varadero features a new HECS3 oxygensensing catalytic exhaust gas converter system. This system effectively controls engine operation to minimise the emissions of harmful gasses and ensure full compliance with Europe's strict EURO-3 emissions regulations, all while maintaining the top performance and swift acceleration for which the Varadero has won renown.
