HONDA VT750S

 

The new VT750 S combines easy handling, comfort and satisfying power with classic retro-styling that stands proud. The clean simplicity of its silhouette and the rumble of its V-twin engine have an immediate appeal. This is combined with the smooth performance of a thoroughly contemporary machine.

The styling of the VT750 S integrates elements of a V-twin American image. Its upright and comfortable riding position is designed for confident control and agile handling. The bodywork is compact, making it easy to manoeuvre through narrow city streets and busy traffic.

The VT750 S is powered by a robust and dependable liquid-cooled V-twin engine that pumps out good power over a broad rpm range. Easy starting, instant throttle response and smooth, satisfying acceleration are assured by Honda’s PGM Fuel Injection system and an idle air control valve which precisely controls incoming air for smooth operation.

The VT750 S was developed to deliver all-round riding enjoyment to a wide range of riders. The seat and controls are positioned for natural, intuitive operation and its easy handling and low fuel consumption make it an appealing option for everyday transport.

 

nice, staggered, twin pipes emit great sound, albeit a tad quiet

both sides look good

love the spoke wheels and just the right amount of bling
