And the crosstourer...
« on: November 23, 2018, 15:36:00 »
went away too...

After Varadero in 2011, this is the end of Crosstourer ... last 2018 models are sold a nice price 12 799/13799 (normal/DCT) in France.

Fortunately, we still have the AT  VCIF_a_008
Alone we go faster, together we go further

I do not ride fast, I ride far

ATAS?  :o

No offence for the CT, but the model was already dated at its release.
It was- and is a reliable bike though; rocksolid with a high quality level of finish.

Unfortunately it never became the success Honda was hoping for. It was introduced as follow up for both the Varadero as the Pan European (I had the honours to be present at the official introduction in Tarragona); but it seemed not to be very much appealing to either Varadero- as wel as ST1300 owners.

Fortunately the CRF1000L made up for it!

Agree with that. In fact I think all Honda V-4's are excellent, but a tad thirsty...  ;D
