Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Renowned for its versatility, reliability and value, the V-Strom 650 has attracted many riders who use it for touring, commuting, or a fun ride when the spirit moves them. It is a touchstone motorcycle balanced with a natural riding position, comfortable seat and a flexible engine character that produces stress-free riding during brief daily use or a high-mile adventure. The 2018 V-Strom 650 XT marries the looks of the V-Strom 1000 and the tubeless-spoke wheels of the prior V-Strom 650 XT to bring a strong Adventure identity and capability to this renowned family of motorcycles. This V-Strom boasts strong engine performance and great fuel economy while achieving world-wide emission standards. A number of engineering accomplishments result in low weight and a thin chassis, producing a V-Strom that is more versatile, more controllable, and more accessible to elevate its total performance so it’s simply “More V-Strom”. And that’s what a rider wants; more of a good ride.Features may include:
