My friend has bought an Aspencade 1500 and he was wondering how can he tell if it a US or Uk / European bike ?



Thanks

Does the speedometer have the miles in MPH or KPH?.That would be the easiest way to tell.,,

Are the US bikes not the same as UK, IE MPH and KPH for the rest of europe? and if so that won't help him,



I thought maybe someone would have a list of vin numbers to cross reference?



Thanks

The registration document V5 will tell him if its been registered overseas or if its a Honda UK import.

A US spec one would have plug and play sockets for additional lights and other accessories, a UK one won't have the wiring for these things.

I can't remember the details of which had it and which did't, but didn't one or the other have split view mirrors? Perhaps someone can shed some light on that.

Big Cahuna et al: My speedometer can change between mph and km/h. My odometer
and trip meter read in kilometers. And my bike has never seen the UK nor the rest of
Europe.

Hint: When I flip my Owner's Manual over it reads: Manuel du Conducteur.

Justlook and see if it's left or right hand drive :D

Seriously,

If you can turn the lights on/off, it's a UK spec.

If it has the sockets for the extra trunk and pannier lights it a US spec.

I was going to say if it likes to ride on the right side it must be US.:ROFL:

The GL1500 Aspencade was never sold in Europe or the UK, all the ones you see were imported and are USA spec.
