This bike is the most underated bike that I know. I have had my 2005 Deauville for 2 years. I commute 120 miles a day, 5 days a week and I ride all year round. The only time he let me down was due to the fuel pump going on him.Come rain, wind, shine and snow, the Deauville has just been superb and does everything that i ask of him - whether it's my daily commute, weekend runs out with my wife (she loves the comfort) and short tour trips over to Holland and France with the wife on the back. I have been riding bikes since i was 17 (now 48 yrs young)and the Deauville has simply been the best all rounder that i have ever had. If you want a practical, reliable and economical bike that you can still have fun on and raise a smile under your lid then I highly recommend the Deauville. It may not light up the world with regards BHP and top end speed but the Deauville will still be there for you when all the garage queens are hidden away at the first sign of rain.
