Honda Deauville

2010 Honda Deauville NT700V

The Honda Deauville, also marketed as the NT650V and NT700V, is a mid-range touring motorcycle introduced by Honda in 1998[1] with a liquid-cooled 52° 650 cc V-twin engine. In 2006, the engine capacity was enlarged to 680 cc and the bike was renamed the NT700V Deauville. Originally marketed in Europe, Honda marketed the bike for model years 2010-2011 in the U.S. as the NT700V.

The Deauville/NT700V features include programmed fuel-injection system, digital transistorized ignition with electronic advance, power delivery via shaft drive, five-speed gearbox, cable-actuated clutch, center and side stands, standard riding posture, 58.1" wheelbase, 31.7" seat height, 5.2-gallon fuel tank, three-spoke 17" alloy wheels, 562-lb curb weight, linked braking system with optional ABS, manually adjustable five-position integral windscreen and integral fairing, twin trip odometers, instant and average MPG readouts and twin dash-mounted storage compartments (one lockable).

With a history of designing bikes with integral storage — namely the Pacific Coast/PC800, ST1100, Gold Wing and ST1300 — Honda designed the Deauville/NT700V with integral side panniers featuring a 7-gallon/45-liter cargo capacity connected via a pass-through port to accommodate longer items.[2]

History

In 1998, the NT650V Deauville made its debut with a fully integrated three-quarter 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 EU emissions laws. A combined 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 its relaunch as the NT700V in 2006 when the taller windscreen became manually adjustable for height and the larger capacity engine, now fuel injected, provided an approximately 10 horsepower increase. Also revised were the instrument panel and addition of optional ABS brakes.
