There is a cable running from outside of your front wheel usually on the left hand side if looking from the front, this has a small screw head on it and seems to just blend into the front side of middle of wheel unscrew this and see if the cable inside is free running or not if you turn it round it should acctually send your speedometer a small impulse to send it moving round, next check if cable centre will pull out of outers, if this is right then you have a snapped speedometer cable and will have to replace it. this is quite complicated to do as you will have to take front light off to gain access to the other half of your cable, only a small screw holding that on again, but as i say bit of a bugger to get to, hope this helps you?

The honda varadero is fitted with an electronic speedometer drive ..check the cable from the front left wheel center the cable goes up and connects under the fuel tank...if there are no obvious breaks in the cable the whole thing will need replacing..this is the most likely fault

It could be the 'cam chain' but you will be getting into a major overhaul to replace the cam chain so if you are familiar with the teardown of the motor go ahead and do it otherwise take it to a repair shop.
