Retro rides again with the new Honda VT750S

Honda UK have launched the retro styled VT750S into the UK market.

Powering the new VT750S is a liquid-cooled, V-twin of 745cc with Honda’s latest PGM-FI fuel-injection system but in keeping with the classic styling, the V-twin features finned barrels for that ‘air-cooled’ look.

The frame uses a strong, steel double cradle design, steering geometry has been specifically chosen to give excellent feedback and neutral handling, aided by a 19-inch front and 16-inch/150mm rear wheel. It has 41mm forks and twin shocks, which are adjustable for pre-load, adding to the classic look. A large 296mm front brake disc is aided by a 180mm drum at the rear.

The upright riding position, chrome finished headlight, twin exhausts, wire-spoked wheels and teardrop tank all hint to a bygone age of motorcycling.

Ride safe
