from the honda website found out that the 03 varadero is a FI one ....

anyone riding it ???

how was the fuel comsumption as compare to the carbs counterparts ??

 

:sweat: :sweat:

 

regards

:thumb: Yo Bro btw I've jus got a Vara1k '03 FI version,early June and Varas has been very helpful in givin me input on the carb model as well but at last,I settled for a FI model.Has been very interested to try the FI.Well so far I can tell u IT's Been a Great Decision To finally own 1.It certainly has the power and the agility in manouvrability and straight speed.Fuel consumption is jus about the same as the carb model bout 16km/l at 120 more or less as i've yet to give my attention on the function of the meter.I dun have much background on the carb model as previous bike was a chopper bike.If any of u guys have any suggestion & info on FI do pm me...Cheers

Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and begin all over again.

Much better than a Vstrom u said? In what ways may i ask?

hi guys,

before this turns into a "my bike is better than urs" type of thread, let us be sensitive to other bikes ai? as many have said, its more of the rider than the bike..

having said that, i would also like to look and meet up with other bikes such as the vstrom and tdm..afterall, it's bikes im interested in...

Exodus79>yo yo dude take it ez...:smile:

 

I agreed with Kenny.

IMHO, vstrom, vara, AT , Gs are all work horses that will let u ride miles after miles. They serve the same purpose, touring.

 

So lets forget the "its better than" .... part .

 

Once this small(presently) varadero club is form, we would like to meet other touring bikes club. Exchange tips on touring stuff. I understand vstrom had its own cult following too.

 

:smile:

 

ad21k> I am happy for u getting ur bike.Hope u enjoy ur bike , its a great ride man . We will post meeting venue & date here , so watch this space okay

cool exodus..hope to meet up with u and the strommers some day too..

 

darn..i just went there yesterday to kaypoh..might not be able to make it..but give me an sms all the same..i'll see if time permits..

 

regarding the name..i think also head burst..but i thot a simple name like Club Varadero (of Singapore?) or something like dat can do? anyway, haven seen any forums on deros yet in singapore, unlike the strommers..so it's a little hard gathering pple who rides deros..hopefully more can come up and discuss abt deros and meet up..

Hi there,

 

Saw a tip on the vara-international site for FI vara, have a look at:

 

http://www.powercommander.com

 

there's a link to the vara. Understand that should be cheapest to buy in the US, not sure if they are selling in Singapore. Did not look very closely as mine is also the carb version.

 

Good luck!

Maybe if we start up a local club here we could tie it to VIM, those guys seems very helpful in all ways... then one day we ride over to Europe and join in one of their meets... :cheeky:

btw, any of you guys get a corbin seat for your bikes? Heard a lot about increased comfort with it. Does any of you know what kind of money we are talking about for one?

Thats why we need a club name badly dude

 

Easiest and simplest is SVOG or VOGS

singapore varadero owners group or varadero owner group singapore

 

:smile:

 

anyway I am using corbin.

I give 4.9*/ 5* , really enhance the comfort level tremendously...

the missing 0.5* is due to the broad width of the seat , ur legs would be spread, so u cant plant ur feet on the ground flat.

 

must look at the region between Sgd 550 and above.
