As more and more people get in to or return to biking after years away, the demand for high powered performance is the driving force behind of the major manufacturers.

For the last 8 or so, the king of the large touring has been the Honda Pan European This reliable, comfortable drive bike has found its way in to the competitive market of big tourers, dominating the market as the choice of of British Police forces as main traffic response

However, many people found the Pan to be too big and heavy for day to day commuting, fuel effeciencies not that better than a small It was here that Honda, in Japenese style, found the in the market. A mid-range tourer, sporty ability, light to be easy to ride, yet sturdy for everyday use in all weathers. what the up with was the Deauville.

In simplist the Deauville is an adaptation of the now aging a reliable V-twin shaft The frame is nothing fancy, but its light and predictable. The main and differnce is the new body work covers this frame, includes a half fairing, optional tall screen similar to the Pan European), large that are incorporated in to the tail and very aerodynamically shaped.

The fairing has several little for storage of items, and the list of extras which includes a 6 CD 12v socket, and a Traffic Master

My own Deauville is a 1999 registered in red, with the optional screen and handlebar wind I took possesion of it in February with 17,000 miles on the

Since then, I have a Honda MAC course (highly and my Institute of Advanced Motorists test, as well as covering 2000 miles of my own.

The first impression when on the Deauville is its size. It feels a big bike. And yet, just it out of the garage, it shows that it is and superbly balanced.

Its agile allows for easy filtering of traffic queues, with the of knowing that there is the and exceptional braking available to you if the happens.

On open roads, the ability is sturdy and sure this is not a get-your-knee-down-racing-bike yet still smoothly and laps up bends a cat with a saucer of cream. the torque from that makes for almost effortless with gearshifting only occaisionally, and not the constant up and down required of many of the modern

After 2 or 3 hours in the saddle, you are comfortable, without the back strains often encountered on bikes. And whilst it is conceeded the power of this bike is no for the likes of the CBR600’s or ZX6R’s of world, do you really need much raw power to enjoy a touring? The power that the offers is refined, clean and and will also give you returns in the 50-55 mpg range, on spirited rides.
