Lightweight Sport Tourer
The brand new NT700V from Honda is the latest and maybe only true lightweight touring bike on the market today. The new V-twin looks to also serve double duty as the perfect choice as a motorcycle daily commuter. This new bike is part of American Honda Motor Company’s Powersports Division recent announcement and is the third new release of 2010 motorcycle models. This on-road motorcycle release follows the earlier announcements of Honda’s 2010 Fury, scooters, dirt bikes and ATVs.
“We are very excited about announcing these four street bikes for 2010,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “Within this mix we have a new cruiser, a new lightweight touring bike and two CBR sport bikes. The cruiser offers a whole new look for Honda, our new touring bike delivers light weight, nimble handling, a stylish fairing plus saddlebags for the long haul or daily commute. The CBRs continue to set the standards of performance for the full-on sporting genre. This sets the stage for a great year in 2010 and there will be additional street model announcements later this fall.”
If you’re looking for a fully equipped yet lightweight touring machine that’s fun, easy to ride and ready to carry you to work and play seven days a week, look no farther than the new NT700V.
Fully outfitted and ready to roll, the NT700V can turn your daily commute into riding bliss and then carry you off on that weekend adventure. With a stylish and functional fairing, interlinked saddlebags, a strong 680cc V-twin engine and more, the NT700V is ready for any journey you can dream up.
