The Varadero is an underrated all-rounder that handles well but lacks character and it has got all what it takes to be counted among one of the top bikes of Honda series. It has an adventure touring chassis and a firestorm motor installed in it which gives a great power pack ride for the bikers. The engine of the Honda XL1000V is very tough and is designed in a way as to deliver you a smooth ride at motorways where you have to drive fast.Photo 1: HONDA
The Varadero is a comfortable, plush and eats the miles in an almost regal manner. Although it needs to have some work done on its designing but the overall look feels fine and can be customized later. It has narrow yet high handlebars with an upright screen and all works just fine to offer you a smooth ride. The great thing about Varadero is that it is still a bit cheaper than the Varadero but is still more popular like an Aprilia Caponord.
The braking system in the Varadero is really interesting as it comes with a special braking system that combines the front and rear discs which also splits the braking force between them. The area which needs some work done is the exhaust system as it gets rusted very easily and looks ugly. Its top speed is 125 mph and engine size is 996 cc. There is a big motor installed in the Varadero and an interesting fact about it is that the Honda ABS can’t be turned off but works well as am off-road.Photo 2: Honda Varadero
