Honda NT700V Deauville Review

Honda NT700 Deauville Overview

Comfortable touring, reliable, easy to use and cheap to run; these are statements which sum up the NT700V Deauville.  This cruiser has been built well for the task with its 150-section tyre and agile chassis which remain balanced even when the bike is loaded to the hilt.  If you are planning a long trip across Europe, or any continent for that matter, then the NT700V is a bike you should seriously consider.

The SOHV V-twin engine won’t see you racing off at the lights but acceleration is still impressive for a bike of this size, with enough capacity to overtake when needed, sufficient torque and competent handling on corners especially when taking them at lower speeds.  Make no mistake, this is a heavy bike at 236kg but if you are in the market for a tourer then you are probably all too aware of the compromises you have to make in order to find a bike which can take a load and still keep you going on those long stretches.

Look at any review site for the NT700V Deauville and you will see the same comments cropping up time and again; this bike is economic, insurance is cheap, service costs are low and it holds its price.  This does mean that finding a bargain second-hand is a little trickier but when you consider that Honda bikes are well made and designed to last, then you’ll soon accept the compromise when it comes to initial outlay.  That said, the price of these bikes new makes them a very affordable option for mid-range tourers making them a very appealing option all round.
