Honda placed the fuel under the seat so that the of gravity would be low, the bike easy to balance and for new riders. The rear view were cleverly placed on the of the bike below the handlebars gave excellent rear

These mirrors were to break away in the event the fell over, creating damage to the mirrors which then easily be re-inserted in original position. The mirrors contained the turn signals provided excellent visibility to traffic.

Another feature Honda designed to minimize was to build front and rear bars hidden behind body panels in the lower and rear of each side of the If the bike was tipped over and the panels covering the crash were damaged the panels easily replaceable and saved the the expense of replacing much body panel sections.

In a further effort to make easier for the new riders the engine was to use hydraulic valves similar to is found in automobiles. Most use adjustable valves which special skills to adjust at intervals. Honda used the two V-Twin configuration engine it’s successful 750cc model cruiser bike and the displacement from 750cc to for more responsiveness.

Honda took the additional and quite step of encapsulating the engine in insulating polystyrene foam to it quieter and more pleasant for the time riders.

The styling of the Coast is best described as style for while it had a relatively range of about 160-180 per tank of fuel (40-45mpg), it a windshield and the most unusual area ever offered on a By unlocking the small door at the of what looked like the tank (really a cover for the air

It was offered in 1994 in a red or black and again did not sell in large for the same reason. Honda the Pacific Coast back in 1997 in red only and discontinued it the 1998 model year.
