Welcome to the site!

I had never herd of the Varadero, did the US have anything similar? From a quick glance it looks very muck like our current CRF1000.

Welcome Nomad! yeah, the Varadero looks like another sweet motorcycle/car that we never got here in the US :(
They never sold the Varadero in the US!!!? Oh wow.
Put it this way...it’s the bike you all would have had before your AT’s! Mine is 14 years old and still going strong, only selling because of new emissions rules in this silly city. Brand new v8 Range Rover, fine, old motorbike that’s never stuck in traffic and doesn’t pollute much, not good....

Despite the running time Varadero was well designed bike. A bit strange seen now, but well balanced and positioned body let the rider take the long distances without much tiring.

Lots of similarities in shape but the AT is way more refined. They brought it to Canada on a whim and it didn't sell too well. It's a terrific bike if you're doing touring and some gravel. It's the same motor as the VTR1000 and RC51 just detuned. It was great fun!
