I saw Honda written on it myself. Just couldn't read the model name properly. I first thought it was a Harley.

The varadero it is! I tried googling "HondamotorcyclesUSA" but the varadero isnt on the list. Too bad its there on the list in their UK site which I happened to see just now

Isn't this made entirely for the 'Rest of the world' market. By that I mean, its not sold in the US & Canada, and some parts of Mexico. IIRC,that's what a colleague of mine mentioned when he was considering a touring/ off road bike.
Good find!

Exactly, You stole the words of my mouth. I too was going to mention that in my last post but missed in other matters. That is very much a 954.

There is another red Varadero in Mumbai, usually spotted with rider and pillion equipped with white Shoei lids. Pictures of that somewhere on the forum.
S6, what pipes are those on the Varadero?

The Blade was launched only in the US in '93. Everywhere else it was in '92.

That Varadero was at Jonny's garage yesterday for some work. That must be the owner test riding it.

No. plates weren't blanked out, as both the bikes belong to friends.
More to come.
