Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
For 2018, Honda updated its classic touring model. The flat six engine is drastically re-engineered, with new four-valve heads and other upgrades. It's supposedly much more fuel efficient, enabling Honda to reduce the size of the gas tank but have the same range. This version of the bike doesn't come with a tail trunk, and in general, luggage space is reduced, but ABS is standard, there's throttle-by-wire, and the bike is lighter.
