What do you do with a bike as
revolutionary as the class-leading Honda NC750X? How about make it even better, with a
list of updates and improvements that put it even further out in front? The
best parts haven’t changed: During the week the NC700X is an awesome commuter,
while on the weekend it lets you go exploring in the country, or carve up a
twisty canyon road. Its parallel-twin engine offers a generous helping of
useable torque, and the seating position makes sense for a ride around the
block or around your favorite continent.
So what’s new? How about a larger windscreen for better weather protection; new, tougher-looking bodywork; a new front-brake caliper; and a new pentagonal muffler for a sharper look and a sound you’re bound to love. The new luggage compartment holds even more, a full 22 liters, and comes with a new “utility rail” and a storage hook inside the lid. Available in two versions—the conventional six-speed, manual-clutch transmission remains one choice, while a second version is available with an updated version of Honda’s exclusive automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). Even the tires are easier to service, thanks to new “L”-shaped valve stems.
