Honda®’s new NC700X® is a real breath of fresh air in today’s world of specialized motorcycles; a new concept in streetbikes; and one that puts the FUN in Functional. During the week it’s an awesome commuter. On the weekend it lets you go exploring in the country; or carve up a twisty canyon road. Light; nimble; and with an engine that offers a generous helping of useable torque; it’s all wrapped up in a package that’s big enough for longer rides; but not a handful in tight traffic or in a parking lot. And to sweeten the deal; it’s even available in two versions: one model features a conventional six-speed; manual-clutch transmission; while a second version is available with the latest generation of Honda®’s exclusive automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).
The NC700X® offers just the right amount of bodywork—enough to offer good wind protection; but not so much that the bike gets heavy or wide.
Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer; digital bar-type tachometer; clock; low-fuel gauge and two trip meters. The meter is light; compact and easy to read; too.
With 6.0" of travel; the NC700X® strikes a perfect balance between a long-distance and a short-hop street machine. This gives it a wide range of capability; good handling and helps inspire confidence.
The 17" wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from and really help the NC700X® offer responsive handling in turns. The cast wheels are light and strong too.
Light; strong and with just the right amount of stiffness; the NC700X®'s rigid and compact chassis is the foundation for precise handling.
Carbureted engines can be fussy when it comes to feeding them fuel. Not the NC700X®. Electronic Fuel Injection means easy start-ups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
The NC700X® offers a 21-liter utility compartment that’s big enough to hold most full-face helmets. Safe; secure and convenient; you'll use it every time you ride.
With its cylinders tipped 62° forward for better weight distribution; the NC700X®'s engine is a big step forward in modern powerplant design. The two-cylinder format produces tons of low- and midrange torque; and the 270°-phase crank and uniaxial primary balancer make it smooth; too.
Offering 5.9" of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda® Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock; the NC700X® eats up the gnarliest pavement while giving you a smooth ride.
The under-seat 3.7-gallon fuel tank centralizes mass and enhances overall handling. Locating the fuel filler underneath the passenger seat allows for innovative centralized storage.
