This is the Deauville, as they call it in Europe. I rented one over a weekend to tour Tuscany, last year. It's lethargic, but a decent tourer. Nothing special.

2010 NT700V Varadero

I just noticed that Honda now has named the US model 2010 NT700V sport tourer a Varadero. Also the ABS model is only available in silver while non ABS is available in either red or silver. This rename to Varadero seems strange to me with Canada and rest of world getting the XL1000V Varadero adventure bike.

I don't see any use in the renaming, except to confuse consumers.

NT700V Varadero

http://www.honda-motorcycles.org/201...700v-varadero/
Here is reference to Varadero. Could be error but WTF.

edit; Just went back to check above web site and even though it looked like official Honda USA at first glance I now believe it is just some motorcycle sales/info site with no direct Honda connection. WTF again.

It's a mistake.. They're not going to have two bikes named Varadero!

Maybe it's like the case with the Street Fighter 2 villains. In the US, M. Bison is known as Balrog, Vega is known as M.Bison, and Balrog is known as Vega.
