More Information on the Honda Varadero Models

The Honda XL1000V Varadero is a dual-sport motorcycle produced by Honda. Different models have been in production from 1998 to 2013. Fuel injection was introduced in 2004, as well as ABS and smoother operation feed-back. It has capabilities for both long road trips and limited off-road. A smaller 125 cc version, the XL125V Varadero is also produced.

Varadero is the big brother of the Transalp. It's heavy construction affects its top speed but offers a reliable torque, great stability and considerable acceleration at lower parts of the register. Since 2015 it's been substituted for another model equipped with automatic transmission and totally made-over design.


Honda's flagship Adventure Touring motorcycle, the XL1000V Varadero is a 996 cc V-twin engine Adventure Touring motorcycle. Honda introduced the Varadero to the public at the 1998 Munich motorcycle show. First launched in 1998 as a 1999 Model Year, its engine architecture is based on the Honda VTR1000F Firestorm/Superhawk. The Adventure category refers to motorcycles that are designed for long-range touring with basic off-road capability (hence the term Adventure used by Honda as opposed to Dual Sport such as the Honda XR650L.

All versions feature a liquid-cooled engine. In 2001, Honda introduced its Honda Ignition Security System (HISS) essentially an immobilizer system not unlike those in automobiles.

In 2001 production of the Varadero was switched to the Spanish Montesa Honda factory outside of Barcelona where the model continues to be built.

For 2003 the Varadero received some major changes. These included the move to fuel injection and the addition of a six-speed gearbox and a new instrument panel. These changes benefited the model with better torque and fuel consumption. In 2004, ABS was introduced, and it is now fitted as standard in a number of markets based on Honda's safety commitment.
