Honda NC700D Integra

The Honda NC700D Integra is a motorcycle/scooter hybrid made by Honda since 2012. Known internally as the RC62, [ 3 ] the Integra was originally unveiled as the New Mid Concept in 2010, [ 4 ] before being presented in production form at EICMA 2011 in Milan. [ 5 ] The Integra shares a platform with two motorcycle variants, the NC700S (RC61) and the NC700X (RC63). All three variants are powered by a 670cc engine derived from the unit used in the Honda Fit automobile. [ 6 ] The Integra will be available with two different power outputs, one version develops a peak power output of 38.1kW (51.1hp) at 6,250rpm and 62N·m (46lb·ft) of torque at 4,750rpm, while the other has a lower output of 35kW (47hp) and 60N·m (44lb·ft) to meet 2013 A2 European licensing regulations. [ 7 ]


Engine [ edit ]

The Integra is powered by a single overhead camshaft 670cc (41cuin) parallel-twin engine that is essentially the 1.3L Honda Fit engine chopped in half— it even retains the same bore and stroke dimensions— tilted 62° forward to provide a low centre of gravity, with near uniform weight distribution. [ 9 ] [ 10 ] The undersquare engine has programmed fuel injection. separate timing profiles for each cylinder, [ 11 ] [ 12 ] [ 13 ] and is tuned to deliver powerful torque in the low- to mid-speed range. [ 12 ] The engine was designed to deliver a pleasant throbbing feel of a V-twin through the use of a 270° crankshaft, which Honda deliberately designed with a uniaxial primary balancer even though the primary vibration of the crankshaft could have been balanced perfectly using a biaxial balance shaft. [ 7 ]

The fuel consumption figure of 3.58L/100km (79mpg -imp ; 65.7mpg -US ) has been attributed to the low number of moving parts in the engine: The oil pump is driven by the balance shaft, while the camshaft also drives the water pump. [ 7 ] The design also resulted in water hoses that were 30% shorter. [ 9 ] The pistons are resin-coated and lightweight aluminum material is used for the friction-reducing roller rocker arm. [ 13 ]

Transmission [ edit ]

The Integra comes standard with a second generation of the six-speed dual-clutch transmission first used on the Honda VFR1200F. The version used on the Integra is lighter and more compact due to a simplified hydraulic circuit; a learning function has also been added to each of the drive modes to detect a variety of riding environments. [ 13 ] The system uses heavy duty large-diameter clutches to deal with the rigours of use in stop/start city traffic. [ 7 ]

Drive mode on the transmission generally selects a high gear ratio. keeping engine speeds between 2,000 and 2,500rpm, while selecting Sport keeps the engine running at a higher speed for more power on the open road. [ 14 ]

Marketing [ edit ]

The Integra is sold as a scooter in many markets [ 15 ] [ 16 ] [ 17 ] but as a touring motorcycle in some. For example, it appears in the 2012 Honda Netherlands touring brochure alongside well known tourers like the Goldwing 1800. [ 18 ] Reviewers have noted the model as a hybrid of scooter (or maxi-scooter ) and motorcycle. [ 19 ] [ 20 ] Guy Procter from Motor Cycle News referred to the Integra as a “super-scooter”, but wrote that it might be “better understood as the conclusive bridge-builder between mainstream commuting and motorcycling”, noting that it appealed to riders of both motorcycles and scooters, as well as switchers from cars, something that a previous hybrid, the Honda DN-01 had failed to do.
