NC 700 X vs Suzuki DL650 V-Strom: The

The arrival of the new Honda NC 700 X Will it the category of mid-displacement trails? possible. This bike with also a step if we take into account its to the future reform of the European who set a limit to 35 kilowatts for beginners A2 from January 2013.

The opens the opportunity for a brand new block, which relies on unusual for the genre motorcyclist taking into account the of the permit, ultra low average consumption, driveability, accreditation-like performance general, often forward in all arguments, then into the background. Orientation would it intended to appeal … “motomobilistes” or bikers as motorists? So, to find him a true rival that does not exist we have chosen to oppose the NC700X neither more nor than the reference time in road trails: the new Suzuki V-Strom 2012 .

Ergonomics between the crossover Honda is just

Honda NC 700 X is a called “ cross over “ by at the crossroads so. It resembles in some a trail, a road by other … and it is once on board. With 830 mm height to the shape cleverly the new Honda Trail consumer far more accessible than the Suzuki DL650 . which rises to just over 5 mm. The gap therefore once installed.

gives pride to the relaxed, low narrow generally handle high. The Suzuki has an equally ergonomics, but the legs are more and the feeling of being away the direction betrays his older more voluminous.

The first are not less instructive: first, the compact size, the large ultra easy direction, are of a motorcycle extremely intuitive. notice that it’s the sort of home, but this fully meets the ambitions of the NC 700 X to to “ first-time buyers “ . If Suzuki can be the first large displacement of beginners, its height and his size not necessarily make a bike

The City facilitates NC700X

a few urban developments, we quickly that Honda was made to the boulevards: it shines even than the Suzuki DL650 and has orders for greater sweetness. He was 20/20 for the city then? No, not

Firstly because the gearbox does not compete with the of its kind – the Suzuki is then level on this point – but because its brand new engine, as very docile at low revs, no proves no more flexible the excellent V-twin Suzuki.

650 on the DL, you can in the third city in almost no of speed, even by taking up to 2 000 r / While the Honda barely below 2500 r / min without … A highlight for this architecture to 270 ° praised for its high mechanical (see Yamaha TDM 900, the Bonneville). Nevertheless, between the and the roundness of its engine, its ease of his helmet in the wrong tank ( and certainly focusing on the long ), The Honda does not lack for unless the appeal most of us

Suzuki expands on the road

In or at the usual times on peri-urban Honda NC 700 X shows so at ease. The response is more immediate and it not feel like riding a in spite of its power of only horsepower ( to 670 cm3 ). However, accelerating the reports, you find yourself reach the rev limiter … which the motorcycle jump to 6500 rev / Then comes the moment “ to “ a hostile slope on the A4 just from Reims.

With the headwind, the Honda X then shows some in increasing the pace … Suzuki V-Strom does not have restraint and immediately made cannons and the extension very of its 69 horses to more than r / min … Unsurprisingly finally, there is a gap between the two trails of the same even during testing Whatever the report and speed – with the DL 650 in the sixth and fifth in X- Suzuki forget the Honda.

changes your behavior

if one recalls the pleasure of driving – and is it not today? – The Honda is not dropped. The responds quickly to commands and on occasions the county are far from ridiculous, cross just r / min to 130 km / h is a real pleasure riding the NC 700 X. Simply, the engine requires a that departs from the schemes.

We must shift quickly enough because the is limited, and use the flexibility to adjust its to better-looking legal … and finally We discover a twin and then enough reagent. Certainly, accreditation, Suzuki and his “old” whose base was in 2002, there.

Flexibility, torque, longer few blows, obviously, this proves just as effective, in 2012!

With a low center of a pair of 17 inch wheels any roadster, road pavement Bridgestone BT 23, the NC 700 X reveals an excellent behavior: heading hold curved stability of the angle, in the great sinuous, she gives a as soon as triangular panels turns emerge.

On the efficiency of the part, she did better than the and it was not a foregone conclusion given the of DL650. This requires involvement in the changes of direction and is rigid when it triggers a shift. Rest assured, the DL650 V-Strom 2012 is the less a piece of choice in the

We would like to find the Suzuki gums series ( Trail Wing ) or braking at the ( despite its single disc brake while ABS Honda is transparent, resulting in very rebounds in the brake pedal for ).

Once the sculptures of his filled with mud trails, the DL650 does almost no apart from a suitable clearance … And it will end flat in the probably too high for your

Certainly, these bikes can paths rolling, but little The functionality of the trails is a distant these bikes are actually comfortable on road.
