Honda Deauville (NT700V) Discussion Thread

Honda just announced that the Deauville will be coming to the US as a 2010 model - as the NT700V and NT700V ABS.

There's also a VTX1300C fuel injected model and a new bobber - Shadow Phantom

For 2010, the CBRs get:

wait for it...

wait for it..

"Exciting new graphics."

No word yet on an updated VFR.

We've been discussing this in the other thread.

My first thought was the bike is way overpriced. But a ABS DL is $7500. Figure $1000 for good hard luggage. So your now at $8500.00. You are paying extra for the shaft drive and no valve adjustments (doesn't it have hydraulic lifters). So you are starting to get within range of the Deauville with a DL650 if you wanted shaft drive.

The BMW F800 St is $10,600. How does it compare to that bike?

Correct me if I'm wrong but this is also the same engine which is in the DN01 - it doesn't have hydraulic lifters and does require valve checks.

Sounds like it's taking over for the VFR in '10. Don't worry, they'll all be on ebay in '11 for $8k...

Saw a British chap on one...

...last summer up on the AlCan (Yukon).

It's a tidy touring bike, perhaps what BMW should've built.

I would expect the F800ST to be a bit more powerful. But the valve adjustments on one of those aren't especially home-shop friendly.

I wonder how difficult it is to remove the rear wheel. Some shaftys are far more difficult than they need be. That's one BMW has consistently gotten right for decades.

Honda build quality + Honda dealers EVERYWHERE may make this a great alternative to huge, heavy, megapowerful "sport-touring" rigs available.
