Honda NT650/700V Deauville Overview
Dubbed the ‘Dullsville’ by much of the motorcycling press, the NT650/700V Deauville is not the most exciting motorcycle on the planet. The V-twin motor should last forever, thanks to a low rev-ceiling and even lower compression, and it’s a Honda, so corrosion shouldn’t be too much of an issue on all but the most neglected examples.
What the Deauville lacks in charisma it compensates for, to a degree, with practicality. Performance is fairly modest, handling is typically Honda-neutral and it’s comfortable, even on long journeys. Fuel economy is great too, with more restrained owners claiming up to 55mpg.
Built-in panniers make it a hit with couriers, as does the low-maintenance shaft drive. It’s a great bike if relatively rapid, low-cost transport matters more to you than heightened senses and adrenaline. It’s a no frills, few thrills kind of a bike, but as a workhorse, there are few bikes as frugal and hassle-free as the Deauville.
Prices start somewhere in the region of £1,600 for a high mileage 650 up to £5,000 for a low mileage 700 from a dealer.

Very flexible bike, rides well and a forgiving gear box for the times you don't get it quite right
Flexible engine, can pick her skirt up and run when it needs too
