Honda’s legendary quality extends back to the 1949 and the original Honda Dream. Owners know they’ve bought a reliable motorcycle when it has Honda’s iconic wing on it. The company’s line of Honda bikes available at Grantham Honda includes off-road only dirt bikes, sport bikes and tourers. Here are three of Honda’s best for this year.
The Goldwing is Honda’s large-displacement long distance tourer. Its 1,832 cc six-cylinder engine makes 167 NM of torque at 4000 RPM, ensuring you and your passenger will effortlessly cruise down the road. The Goldwing is made for touring—it comes standard with lockable panniers, large comfortable seats, plenty of wind protection, and an 80 watt sound system.
The Goldwing starts at £24,499 (includes first registration and road tax.)
The new CBR500R sits between the 250 cc CBR and the 600 cc super sports in Honda’s motorcycle line-up available at Grantham Honda Bikes. Its 194 kg weight and 27 Km/L fuel consumption make the CBR500R a great around town bike for those moving up from smaller bikes. A big 320 mm disk brake in front and 240 mm in back will stop the bike quickly, and its 35 kW @ 8,500 rpm parallel twin has enough power for spirited riding in the countryside. Available Genuine Honda accessories include: top box and pannier kits, a high windshield and a rear seat cowl.
The CBR500R starts at £5,099 (includes first registration and road tax.)
Honda’s NC700X standard adventure bike is comfortable and fuel efficient. The low centre of gravity, upright seating position and 218 kg weight make it simple and safe to ride. And, with the available dual-clutch transmission you don’t have to worry about shifting gears, the bike will do it for you. The NC700X’s 670 cc parallel twin makes 35 kW of power at 6,250 rpm and sips 17.2 litres of fuel each mile. And, since the fuel tank is under the seat, there is a large lockable compartment where the tank usually is—perfect for securely stashing your helmet and gloves.
The standard transmission NC700X starts at £5,999 (includes first registration and road tax.)
Whichever Honda you choose, you’ll get a quality, fuel-efficient and reliable machine supported by the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world.
