No more Honda V-Twins in Canada?

I don't know when this happened but went to the Honda Canada site and noticed no more VT cruisers: just two Rebels and one is a single cylinder 286cc bike so nice cruiser. Not.

So upgrade path is first: single cylinder Rebel 300, next bike: 6 cylinder 1800cc GoldWing !!!!!

PS. I had planned on keeping my 1995 VT1100Cs for 25 years so I started looking for a newer model. Guess I will have to keep it forever or downgrade to Goldwing.

Maybe they just haven't got them in stock yet but Honda is still making v-twins.

It looks like you are 100% correct on that... The Rebel 500 is a Twin but it's not a V-twin, the website says it's a Parallel-twin.

I guess if you want to buy a new Honda V-twin you'll have to come to the States. And then your only choice is a 1300cc in a few different models.

Looked on the Canada Honda Powersports website and it doesn't show any Cruisers except the Rebels.

Sometime between 2016 and 2017 that happened. Some dealerships had 1 or two 1300's There was one Stateline 2016 left in a dealership in Nova Scotia but that was the only one I could find. And that was last year in Aug
