Honda Deauville NT650V modified with blue lights and sirens for emergency services use

The Honda Deauville is a mid-range touring motorcycle developed by Honda in 1998 for the European market to replace the NTV650 Revere. Originally badged as the NT650V Deauville, it was powered by a 52° 650 cc V-twin. In 2006 the engine capacity was enlarged to 680 cc and it has been rebadged as the NT700V Deauville. The power delivery is via a shaft drive through a 5 speed gearbox.

The small size (compared to a full-size tourer), good fuel consumption, comfort, and reliability have made this a very popular commuter motorcycle.

History


In 1998 The NT650V Deauville made its debut with a fully integrated three-quarter Motorcycle fairing and panniers to distinguish it from the Revere on which it was based. The engine was also re-tuned for stronger low-to-midrange torque. To further suit its touring role, the fuel tank capacity was enlarged to 19 litres. Despite some minor additions in 1999, the motorcycle remained unchanged until it was revamped in 2002. Larger-capacity panniers (left capacity increased from 18 to 24 litres; right capacity increased from 16.7 to 19.5 litres) with more secure cover latches and hinges were fitted. The engine was overhauled with lighter pistons and other engine modifications to reduce vibration. A catalytic converter was fitted to ensure compliance with the stricter European Union emissions laws. A Linked braking system was fitted and the front brakes were upgraded to 3-piston calipers. Aside from some minor additions in 2004, the motorcycle remained largely unchanged until it major overhaul in 2006. The taller windscreen is manually adjustable for height. The larger capacity engine is now fuel injected to give a power boost of almost 20%. The luggage carrying capacity has been further enhanced. Also included are a new instrument panel and optional ABS brakes.
