2006 Honda VTX1800Neo SN448
UK Registration: HD55 XFW
If you are looking for a heavy weight cruiser with a monster street presence and a deep V-Twin lope then this rare Honda VTX1800N might be a good option for you.
Basic question ….Are you man enough for this MONSTER BIKE!
I managed to scoop this bike from the original owner in West Palm Beach a couple years ago on one of my buying trips.
The bike has just over 12,500 miles. The gentleman I bought it from had to change the speedo 123 miles ago as it was sunbleached (quite common over in Florida).
We sold it over here last year to a chap who has now decided to sell it back as he’s hasn’t had enough time to use it (he only did 300 miles on it!). It has been kept in a garage undercover and not been ridden in the wet.
So what makes this N model different from the C,F,S & the R models? The most obvious difference is the unique wrapped around fenders, which really set its style. These fenders were based on those that were used on the Rune. The rear fender includes a pair of flush-mounted horizontal LED taillights, a first for any full-production Honda cruiser.
This bike in particular is also the Spec 3 model meaning the most expensive VTX with added chrome to forks, radiator shroud, driveshaft and polished rear drive. Added also is the aftermarket Ultimate X seat with the riders backrest which is a rare/expensive option to have. Behind this is the mustang bib that really sets the backend off nicely.
Along with all of this it has been fitted with the aftermarket cobra straight pipes. These things sound good even on the smallest cruisers but on this beast they sound absolutely epic – check the video.
All in all this is a cracking bike with fantastic spec and in great condition. They’re hard to find like this over in the US, let alone in the UK so if you are interested I wouldn’t hesitate as it won’t be available for long.
