Bought the bike new and have just had its first service. Another 100cc on the engine would have been helpful especially on slow speed pulling. Generally happy with the bike although I get a shoulder pain when riding. This may be due to the handlebar height. (read more)

I have had my NT700V Honda Deauville for 15 months and travelled over 22000 Kms. It is a fantastic commuter bike and very good tourer. I have toured up to Coffs Harbour from Bendigo (about 1500 Kms) and it cruised beautifully - sat on about 120 Kms on the highway and it had heaps in reserve. I have put it through its paces with a mate of mine who was on a new Honda Blackbird and had no trouble matching his pace or agility. I haven't had much experience with larger bikes, but I would...

New model with fuel injection is a big improvement on old bike (which I also owned). I noticed a big improvement in performance, particularly in mid range. All in all this is a good machine for day to day commuting. (read more)

I'm a "born again middle aged biker, bought a S/H Bandit 600 in 2000 after 17 years without a bike. My previous bike was a CX500 which I loved, the Deauville is a descendant of this and I wanted one. The Bandit was a pain, carbs freezing up on cold mornings, and constantly needing niggling attention. When I got a plum job 20 miles away I decided to treat myself to a Deauville and I haven't been disappointed! Commutng to work is a doddle and 3 trips to Germany have been completed in comfort...

The Honda Deauville (mine's a 650) is reliable, has low servicing and insurance costs, is easy on tyres and can cope with daily commuting and weekend tours/rideouts. If you are thinking of buying one take my advice and buy the following items which all make this mini-pan all the more useable through both summer and winter: -Tall screen(essential) takes the wind and rain up and over your visor not straight into your face which the standard one does. -Lower fairing protectors. These are... (read more)

I may not have a vast experience with motorbikes, but I do know when I like something and the Deauville I like.
I use this to go to work and back through slow moving traffic (about 20 miles round trip) that takes 60 mins by car and 12 mins on bike - no contest.
It also gives me pleasure at the weekend to cover some 100 plus miles radius from home, just because I can.
The wider rear luggage units are massive, but really very practical and the upper fairing hand/wind deflectors are a god send... (read more)

After my first review in May 2005, I have now owned the bike from new for just over two years, and I have a few points for the long term owner. I have noticed some piston knock after 12,000 miles / 20,000ks. I live in a country town and it takes about 40 seconds of slow riding and I am on a highway at the 100 KPH to work each day, and now the Honda NT650V Deauville motorbike is showing accelerated signs of piston wear. I am familiar with the noise, and I repair a lot of small engines, as I... (read more)

I traded in a 2000 Triumph Sprint ST for a low mileage 2001 Honda NT650V Deauville which I chose in preference to the 2002 model as I didn't want the linked brakes of the newer bike. I've added a MRA Vario Touring screen, wind deflectors and heated grips (for winter riding), a fenda extenda to the front mudguard, a 42 litre Kappa topbox for added capacity and a power socket (to recharge my mobile). The result is an easy to ride motorcycle that keeps off the worst of the weather and does... (read more)

The Honda Deauville is a viable choice for motorcyclists requiring a bike with motorway and urban capabilities wrapped with a three quarter fairing in an attractive profiled shape. Not a bike for those who wish to flaunt their testosterone levels to the public or impress the ladies, but more in tune with those experienced 30/40 somethings who appreciate open spaces, having to compete with urban congestion or simply balmy summer Sundays cruising the country lanes with a sense of relaxed...
