1999 Honda NT650V Deauville from United Kingdom
Sensible, comfortable, practicable and cheap...
Leaking radiator caused by trapped grit between fan housing.
Fuel pump; since discarded, now use gravity feed.
Radiator fan switch.
I have owned motorcycles for 50 years and have no doubt that this is the best all round motorcycle I have owned.
Practical, easy for the home mechanic to work on (once the plastic is off).
Comfortable, inexpensive to run, quite a torquey engine for the size.
Ideal for day trips, plenty of luggage space with top box.
Not the best bike if you want thrills, and pose value is nil.
But if you like motorcycling for the pleasure of open air freedom this is difficult to beat. It's not too big, heavy or intimidating, it's just... well, NICE...
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
