Welcome to the new touring era… The new Honda NT1100 offers everything you need in one motorcycle
The weather is getting better, restrictions have been eased and spring definitely seems to be in the air…
If you ride a motorcycle, that means riding season is approaching. When you’re deciding where to ride to, remember to add Vertu Honda Bikes Grantham to your list of destinations. Jim Henfrey and his team will give you a warm welcome to the Motorcycle News Award-winning dealership.
If there’s one thing Vertu knows about bikers, it’s that they like a hot drink and a cob. In fact, you can get them for free if you ride out to one of the monthly Vertu Motorcycle Club meets.
From April to October on the first Saturday of every month, from 10am-12noon, club members are welcome to come and enjoy a free coffee and hot roll and meet other local bikers. There’s lots of parking and any rider is welcome. To join, pop in and sign up, or visit vertumotors.com/vmc and add your details.
As well as the club meets, members get discounts on clothing (including helmets and boots) and accessories. Club members even get a free neck tube to keep stylish and warm.
While at Honda Grantham, cast your eyes over Honda’s latest machine, the versatile NT1100. It has sleek aerodynamics, a large, five-way adjustable screen and upper/lower deflectors that provide superb weather protection. The compact dimensions are just right for urban riding but with the included panniers and a 20L fuel tank, you can travel 400km before filling up. It has a host of extras including heated grips, cruise control, USB socket and a centre stand that makes maintenance easy.
Ade Thomas, who runs Alpha Rider Training, the Honda School of Motorcycling based at Grantham, says: “The NT1100 is super smooth, well-balanced and effortless to ride. It is super-comfortable, an ergonomically excellent all-rounder suiting any size of rider or with a passenger. I love the gadgets, the display screen is large, clear and easy to use. The Apple CarPlay is really clever, displaying your phone’s maps and media directly to the bike… Nice.”
With a glowing endorsement like that, give Vertu Honda Grantham a call now to book your test ride!
