From the Alps of Germany to the dunes of Africa and beyond, the Varadero has carved out a reputation as a bike that's fully equipped to take you on the adventure of your dreams.
996 cc fuel-injected V-twin engine produces strong torque for tough conditions and effortless top-end horsepower for highway cruising, while also meeting strict emissions regulations.
When the weather turns from desert-like heat to mountain-top misty cool, you'll love the Varadero's wide-coverage fairing and its excellent rider protection and ergonomics.
Combined Braking System with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) means strong and safe stopping power on everything from dirt cart paths to wet mountain roads.
Large 25-litre fuel tank and range-countdown indicator help you cover long distances with confidence.
Optional weatherproof saddlebags and lockable top box can hold most of your adventure gear.
