Introduction     
Offering stacks of smooth, accessible power, a relaxed riding position and plenty of packing space, the Deauville is renowned for its all-round ability to ease every journey, from daily commuting to leisurely weekends away and longer adventures.
Its slim fuel-injected V-twin delivers ample power and impressive roll-on acceleration, even when carrying a passenger and luggage. It is paired with a clean, quiet and reliable shaft drive which adds to the low-maintenance package and the relaxing ride experience. The Deauville features a smooth Combined Brake System that’s specially tuned for balanced, confident braking. A version with Honda's advanced Combined-ABS system is also available for those who prefer extra reassurance over any road surface.
Styling is slim and curvaceous, with a profile that easily negotiates urban streets and nips past queues of traffic, or sits with comfort in more open rural surrounds. The bodywork offers wind protection on a par with larger-displacement Honda tourers, and integrates a pair of large-volume, easy-access panniers. The panniers are expandable with a Large Pannier Lid Set, available from Honda Access, to enhance the Deauville’s touring possibilities. Handling is light and firm, even during high-speed cruising. The riding position is upright and relaxed, and there’s plenty of comfortable space for a passenger. An adjustable windscreen provides protection from buffeting winds for rider and passenger, even taking height differences into account, while a generous fuel tank and impressive fuel economy enable long distances between fuel stops.
The Deauville offers an incomparable blend of control, comfort and convenience as well as a distinctive style that lends itself to any environment.
