Honda NC700X – Road That’s right, 73 mpg and room for in the trunk.

Welcome to the brave new “New” because the motorcycle you see Honda’s innovative NC700X, is a almost 180-degree change in from where motorcycles been heading for many And “brave” because Honda has the dice with this machine, … that are legions of current, past and riders out there who want efficiency and affordability much than they crave 190 9-second quarter-miles and five-digit tags.

Honda’s goals the NC700X were simple in but difficult in execution. It wanted to new and re-entry buyers with an but fun machine that was extremely to ride and delivered exceptional efficiency. These same would also make the attractive as a commuter for established

Obviously, this required about the motorcycle in a different as well as application of newer (some not normally used in and rigorous adherence to controlling costs. This uncommon is reflected in the bike’s model “NC” stands for “New

So, is the resultant motorcycle glamorous? Not Wicked fast? Nope. An bike, as implied by its styling?

Maybe, but only if your are not too, you know, adventurous . But is it fun to Absolutely. The NC is atypical, particularly in the of its liquid-cooled, 670cc parallel-Twin but even on your first it becomes clear that is really onto something

Just about everything is different about the NC700X is around the engine. Foremost was put on fuel efficiency and usable and the designers were inspired by the and compact architecture of the 1.5-liter that powers Honda’s Fit minus two cylinders, of course. The NC the Fit’s 73mm bore but a 9.4mm-shorter, 80mm …. throws are spaced 270 degrees creating a 90-degree-V-Twin-like firing

The 62-degree forward lean of the helps give the NC a low center of while freeing up room for the storage compartment over the where the fuel tank would reside; a 3.7-gallon cell is located under the The engine is clearly the jewel of the and its design easily overshadows the pedestrian but effective tubular frame and the NC’s working-man’s and brake components.

Compared to you experience with most of motorcycle engines, getting to the 700X’s method of propulsion a little time. The combination of the power delivery, the staggered order’s lopey sound, the low rev and a whisper-quiet exhaust note a slight adjustment in the rider’s much so that within the few minutes of riding, you’re to bang off the 6500-rpm rev limiter than once.

Even compared to modern powerplants, the Honda is still different. The 7000-rpm Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom we tested is a example. The NC700X spins up an urgency that the heavy-cranked, 1200cc V-Twin can’t so the perception on the Honda is that is more rpm headroom than exists.

That’s why visits to the NC’s abrupt rev limiter are more than expected.
