Since many of riders also enjoy the experience of travelling two-up a spouse or companion in tow, the was soon recognised as offering an match for these specialised with expansive accommodations and expandable carrying capacity possible long trips on a notice. Another prime has been its torquey V-twin which delivers a strong of acceleration from anywhere in its powerband. Whether climbing ranges or stretching its legs Europe’s high-speed carriageways, the has come to be regarded as a first-class to pleasant days of touring and exciting side-trips off the beaten

Now four years in production, and class competitors nibbling at its the Varadero has found itself in of a new infusion of style and improvements in performance designed to bring it up to with the latest in Honda’s of large-displacement riding machines.

For 2003, the Varadero’s design sought to significantly reduce its fuel consumption and exhaust in order to provide a longer of non-stop touring capability on a charge of fuel, while surpassing the strictest emissions in the Community. The obvious solution was to the switch from the Varadero’s large-bore flat-slide carburettors to the precision of Honda’s advanced programmed fuel injection

New PGM-FI Fuel Injection

These twin goals of range and lower emissions brilliantly achieved with the of Honda’s proven PGM-FI which provides strong, responsive power while leaner settings to reduce consumption. The system’s new 42mm bodies were each with a single 12-hole (the same as used on the SP-2), which produces a atomised spray of fuel the air intake rushing into the chambers to ensure peak efficiency for top performance.

Further combustion efficiency is a higher ratio of 9.8. 1 (up from the Varadero’s 9. 1) achieved by lowering the of the combustion chamber slightly, and a new set of iridium spark plugs. combination results in a stronger, responsive power delivery with significant reductions in consumption, and all while running on unleaded regular.

It also into a greatly extended touring range-from a current of about 340 kilometres on a full of fuel to a more comfortable 465 which further translates to more economical running per 100km of operation.

This change helps the Varadero to operate at revs in all gears for a significant to reduced fuel consumption, and it an extended touring range. All were changed accordingly, a strong surge of acceleration virtually anywhere in the engine’s rev range, even when loaded down with and gear.

The new 2003 Varadero also detailed improvements to its chassis and to ensure an optimum balance of and responsive performance, especially travelling fully loaded at touring speeds. Changes new solid engine mounts the current frame’s adjustable that enhance the engine’s member mounting for subtle in handling. New reinforcement patches at the of the frame also contribute to the overall balance of rigidity, ensuring optimum strength and stability when riding loaded with a passenger and the larger new optional panniers and big optional top box.

Modified Settings
