OVERVIEW

  • In 1983 Honda continued with the upscale Aspencade
  • “The Aspencade is the ultimate in touring motorcycles
  • At its heart is a proven flat-four engine
  • Special features include an on-board suspension adjustment system, standard Type II Honda stereo radio, and brand new LCD digital instrumentation
  • Quite simply, there is no other choice for the long-distance rider”
  • “Combination LCD-digital instrument panel and keyboard Instrument panel contains LCD read-outs for speed (with mph/kph converter), engine-rpm, trip, gear position, fuel and engine temperature Also, there are warning lights for high beam, neutral, oil, and air suspension status The keyboard is the control center for the Aspencade’s on-board air suspension leveling system, as well as a trip-monitor system TRACTM torque-sensing anti-dive control units with four-position stiffness adjusters fitted to both fork legs.”

  • “Interconnected braking system The rider’s right foot controls one front disc and the rear disc, while the right handlebar lever controls the other front disc Less of the rider’s attention is required for most normal braking manoeuvers The fork brace stabilizes front fork action Redesigned engine guard gives more foot clearance and allows easier fitting of highway pegs Three-position adjustable passenger foot pegs move through a range of 60 mm Larger, flat-section foot pegs increase comfort.”

  • “Internal gear ratio changes lower engine speed at highway speeds, especially in overdrive.”

  • “Travel trunk moved rearward 30 mm for more passenger comfort, and taller backrest fitted New shape two-tone seat has improved comfort with dual density foam Cover material upgraded with new, soft-feeling cover.”
