“Simply The Best”

Written on: 10/07/2012

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… Read Full Review

“It gets you there”

Written on: 03/07/2012 by majormartin (1 review written)

I bought a 2000 model a year ago. I own 2 other bikes so my deauville is often left in the garage for several weeks at a time. I go to it turn the key press the button and it fires up. I then ride it for up to 300 miles in a day in comfort. Park it up, repeat again a few weeks later. This is on a bike with 93000 mls on the clock. what more could you ask of a bike? Some say they're boring. I often hit the footrests on the road when cornering. They are not boring, they are a functional… Read Full Review

“On and On”

Written on: 08/06/2012

I bought a 2004 model from new. At first I had it serviced where I purchased it (no problems), only to find out about 4 years later the dealer stopped being a Honda specialist. Then I used a local Honda garage - where it generally came out worse after a service than it went in. Around 50K it was breaking down and the Honda garage could only guess the fault. A passing motorcyclist recommended a local back street garage. They immediately recognised the problem (fuel pump issue) fixed it, and now… Read Full Review

“Great all rounder, highly recommended”

Written on: 11/05/2012 by setasoso (4 reviews written)

My Deauville NT700 is a 2007 model I bought second hand last year. Its narrower and less bulky than later models, so I've had no problems weaving through city and motoway traffic. On the open road the throttle leaves most cars lagging behind, providing more than enough acceleration to join motoways and overtake. A mid sized Givi top box and the small panniers gives loads of storage for a commuter. Negative points? The visor is not adjustable - you can unmount it, turn it 180 degrees, and screw… Read Full Review

“65bhp bike that weighs 236kg dry!”

Written on: 28/04/2012 by london2wheels (3 reviews written)

With oil and petrol you are talking wrong side of a quarter ton. 65bhp at crank (claimed) through a drive shaft (rather than chain) means something like 50bhp at back wheel. 5 gears mean no close ratio box here. So if you have had the misfortune of spending time on this beast (it really is a big lump of a bike) you will note: a) SLOW bike b) Big, wide body, seating position too far over rear wheel and handling is top heavy. So you can’t overtake in traffic and you cant overtake on the open… Read Full Review

You really have missed the point of this bike. It is NOT a superbike. It is a touring bike that I can easily do 700 Kim's in a day. The panniers hold a lot, the bike will overtake really well and I can keep up with my friends on their Ducatis and BMWs on almost all riding sessions. It is not effected by cross winds, does 5 l/100kms, has a range of 350 Kim's on a tank. Great bike for touring.
If you want a sports bike don't get a Deauville, if you want long distance touring without the weight of an ST 1300A or Goldwing, the this is a really great bike!

Written on: 15/09/2014

What were you expecting? The same performance as a Ducati or an R1? It's like buying a Honda Shadow or a Triumph Rocket III and complaining that "it's useless for track days!" The Deauville does what it was designed to do. No bike is perfect. Not one. But the Deauville is a reliable solid performer and can be bought cheaply.

Written on: 23/09/2013

Ha, one mans meat etc.
I've bought a Deauville and it's the most comfy bike I've ever ridden. Not powerful compared to my previous 'blade but fast enough for everyday use for sure. Will pull two up easy 80 mph with enough left to overtake. Not bad from a 650 V-twin engine. If I want to ride in economy mode it will do over 75mpg.
The bike is a nimble handler, you can easily filter on this bike and overtaking is a doddle. It has low maintenance shaft drive and good weather protection.
It's no road burner but it doesn't pretend to be. A reliable, charming everyday reliable workhorse. And 99% of riders praise its virtues..

“good reliable bland”

Written on: 19/10/2011 by danfandan (1 review written)

I have owned many bikes over too many years and rate the Dullsville right up there with the very best for practicality. Handles well goes moderately fast brilliant fuel consumption. I have had a radiator leak a clutch cable snap and the fuel pump fail, bypass the fuel pump and rely on gravity feed, good for at least 18 miles into reserve that means 200 mile tank range. Love the bike… Read Full Review

“Good all round workhorse”

Written on: 31/05/2011

I have had my NT650V (Deauville) from new (13 years this Aug), after putting 114k miles on my XJ600 I was fed up of replacing, tensioning and cleaning chains so I had a list of requirements which this bike matched to a T. Not the most exciting bike but a very comfortable ride (albeit a bit more vibration then the straight 4 of the Yamaha). I originally bought for commuting but since leaving London (after putting 64k on it) I only use it for touring now. If you are used to an unfaired bike… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/05/2011

As with pretty much all products, it depends on what you're looking for... I used mine for regular commuting until the kids got old enough for me to be involved in the school run. However, once every year I take off for a week of solo touring. The Deauville is absolutely ideal for this. I ride on my own, not with a group, so I want a bike that is utterly reliable in all weathers, has a decent range, can hold my kit (with top-box) and which I can pick up on my own if I drop it. It's not the… Read Full Review

it does in dead sound like you and the friend who had the bike before you, did little or no maintenance on the bike.

Written on: 11/02/2011

I was looking for a bike that I could use to commute but would also be an ideal touring bike come the summer months. After reading the reviews of other riders I decided that the Deauville could be the bike for me. It is great for commuting, comfortable seating position, just the right size and weight, nimble enough to negotiate the congested roads but having lots of carrying capacity for luggage.

The let down for me is when touring, the amount of vibration through the handle bars, it is so… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2010

Bought this Deauville on ebay for £620! Whilst it was a bit of a shed in some respects £300 has seen an absolute transformation. Solid, reliable, economical, quicker than you might think. I came to this from a Firestorm and ride it as if it was a sports-bike, sounds silly, but in typical Honda style it just gets on with the job. Would I buy another -YES Would I reccomend it to friends - YES… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/11/2010

The most comfortable all year round bike I've yet owned. However, in 57000 miles it has needed: new main bearings (4k), SIX (really!) clutches, one new exhaust system (21k), two rear shocks (18k and 53k), stator (30k), starter clutch (30k), lambda sensor (41k) and many, many other less vital but equally irritating bits. There have been precious few weeks when it's not been nursing some problem or other. I've spoken to many other owners, and it does appear that I've got myself real a friday… Read Full Review

Do you service it yourself? Or is a mechanic telling you this? If it's a mechanic I'd suggest changing mechanic, or learn to service it yourself.

Written on: 04/02/2010

Bought this bike as a comfy all rounder after my wrists began to give in from too many clip-on handlebars. It is a 2001 650, which has proved extremely reliable to commute on, and even raised a few smiles on the odd Sunday ride - provided you are happy wallowing around corners and lacking the power to overtake fast family saloons... It is no sportsbike, but then it doesn't pertain to be. Instead I can (and have) done long trips fully loaded, with a gargantuan top box and expanded tankbag to… Read Full Review

18000 miles in the first year and 24000 miles after 18 months. All weather riding solo and 2-up. Only sold when the wife was taken ill and we needed the money. Would we buy another one? You bet. Fuel economy brill...50 mpg at 70 ish. Handling is wonderful at any speed and it stops well. Quicker off the mark than some people will let on. Boring? Not at all! No motorcycle is boring. This motorcycle is totaly underestimated by all who don't give it a try. Not a Blade, but a whole lot… Read Full Review
