Honda NC 700 X: Lots of good

March 27, 2012 | Filed Honda | Posted by: Rana

Honda does not rely on high performance bikes or utilities. The manufacturer develops a new and present three models on a common basis and designed to the needs “essential”. First of the “family”, trail Honda NC 700 X versatile, economical … no-nonsense

Honda NC 700 X: First attempt

For the launch of the NC700X. we were to Portugal, with a stopover on the circuit, to try the new CBR 1000 RR. It was of course no of calibrating the new Honda NC700X on the track in the Garvey, but it shows the of the Honda catalog for 2012, high performance and new pragmatic.

In if you missed the show in Milan, the NC 700 X is based on a common technical (motor and cycle parts which will also the NC 700 S, a basic roadster and the Integra, a scooter. But for now, so let us approach the of the day.

Simple, but not cheap

original and modern, Honda X appears quite consistent, and less odd than the Cross yet it takes a little profile. The NC 700 X is not massive; its size is related to the no more, no less. By “around the we do not rave on the proposed equipment. frame, swing arm rectangular tube, single disc brake (on a 670 cm3 amazing vintage it smells undeniably the economy.

However, the plastic of the bike between Japan and Italy – but meeting the country of the Rising Sun – are adjusted, the paint beautifully welds and correct. In short, the NC 700 X is but not cheap.

Easy as a trail

If the sheet indicates a saddle of 830 mm, the boarding is none the less accessible. Thanks to the shape of the it is possible to reach the toes of sides of 1.65 m. An adjustable would still not too many. as a crossover – a bike that genres – NC700X approximates of trails in terms of ergonomics.

straight, arms slightly at least it’s relaxing and you can see far ahead. The parallel twin, original, heating gently; 670 cm3 and a crankshaft timing to 270 ° (as a Yamaha TDM he is discreet enough. Nothing too it would surely more the seed of utility rumbles a trail adventurer.

As we had only the version with gearbox, it has not been possible to the approval of the new dual-clutch transmission, adapted to the Honda NC700X. For we scroll speeds as on any bike and we recognize that the box does not the same pleasure as that of Honda. The grip is none the a formality and the first U-turns and highlight the low center of gravity, turning radius, ease in paces: there is the ease of in all that.

Horses useful not

The big question of this first involved the all new parallel twin, design efforts primarily on usual, the ease, and smoothness and economy. Easy side, is little problem: clutch and controls are obvious to be assayed. side, I imagined it more more particularly at low speeds In fact, this twin not want to go below 2500 rev / min in use, while its maximum (6.2 daNm) is situated 4 750 r / min.

Let’s not exaggerate: urban do not require pouncing on the clutch for a yes or a no.

side-looking usual approval, the scores; the times between 50 and 140 km / h are far ridiculous. On fast track, and a is exceeded and carefree, even as a we double without sweating fear. Only a slight coming parasitize the handlebars to rev / min. Acceleration longer or overtaking on winding county a lengthening rather limited.

The red begins at 6500 r / min and the limiter some 500 lap’s later very brutal, making the heckle. You soon realize it is essential to use this engine on the between 3000 and 6000 rev / This may lead to reactive the of the handle (like all modern lively and finally effective on the after all reduced.

Be careful fans 4-cylinder or longer, should not find happiness Maximum performance side, of the 51.8 hp. of the NC700X does not chromo. Expect a big 185 km / h on motorways – German … – Obtained slowly due to the very long but has the advantage of the engine speed to 4000 rev / min to 130 km / h. At it provides an engine speed on the motorway and is probably involved in consumption.

It only remains to swallow sit comfortably and moderately sheltered the small bubble series.

at all times

Over the miles, we a motorcycle quite effective. to its relaxing typed trail, also supports a standing Good news for lovers of although the countryside getaways are limited by the road profile The behavior reveals a subtle of agility and stability.

And on the road, the wheels add precision, especially Roadster Z8 roadways Interact, on this bike.

Reading the is very good and comfort is at the although the suspension (especially the is a little dry on the small bumps. if you change quickly from one and shines nervously against the causes a slight pumping. all odds, the single front disc “does the job” and the Honda is once again its effectiveness. Small coffee and hop, you slip the headset the cargo bay formed in the false

As a Mana, we will quickly get to this cunning arrangement. Too bad it a pilot and a protective coating, as the larger helmets seem to to shoehorn.

The pit stop to check the of the day: 4.2 l / 100 km against 3.6 liters/100km by Honda DCT version. Not bad but not exceptional given the modest power, if the Honda NC700X must extra pounds. The Maxi the Kawasaki Versys 650, for reported an average consumption of 5.18 l/100 km, with a powerful engine.

The debate but if consumption “annual” is approaching 4 km, it is already very convincing.

: improved, but quickly endearing

In the Honda NC700X is born. in an honorable way, it is not poor. The but could be improved, quickly endearing. And the bike as a whole can quickly become. Effective, to take, always comfortable, and fun in turns, it draws upon the on a daily basis.

This will be an excellent every day, which need to go on a weekend once a equipped. And approval engine not spoil the trip: it will get used to driving at low enough and to write off the extension. In return, spend less frequently in the gas attendant.

In the case of “less”, also extends a short (so to speak …) we will be outside improved damping and pettiness in such as gear indicator – while it comes standard on DCT – or an optional center stand. a selling price … And here we admit that a “ticket” of € in ABS version is an argument to be placed in the of “more”.
