Ny NT 700 Review

When I got back riding, I knew I wasn’t a of the young testostrone crotch crowd. I was always interested in the tourer but the ST 1300 was too big, so I with a cruiser look and my 750 Aero. I really loved bike but when Honda that they were a top European seller, the NT 700 to the American this year, I noticed.

I it was my bike when I sat on it at the NYC Show and a long line of aging types waiting their after me. I guess Honda it’s market audience.

So my report on my new NT700 compared to my old 750 Aero in order of the things made the first and biggest

1. Riding Position. I like the seating position with my directly below me. The seat is six inches higher than the which makes me feel it all. At 6 feet, I can still foot and feel secure at With a higher bike, I being able to lean more in the curves.

I’ve gently scraped the of my boot but not scraped the pegs yet I did all the time on the Shadow. On our recent we had no trouble doing 6 hour easier than similar on the Shadow. My wife appreciates the passenger seat and doesn’t sitting at the same level as me.

I about this because one on this forum said his liked the relative higher for the cruiser compared to sport

2. Wind protection. The adjustable keeps the head buffeting to a same was true with my Shield but I had to buy this extra). I rode my Shadow at high on the super slab, I’d the wind buffeting my chaps and even at times feel my feet were being be off the pegs!

The fairings eliminates all of this. comfortable.

3. Handling or the Twisties: I mentioned that the NT is higher off the and able to lean more. It has a wheel base, rake, and and is easier to lean over the Shadow. I absolutely loved our or five hour drive on the Ridge Parkway twisties little traffic. It’s more exciting solo, but likes the bike so much it’s hard to get away to solo!

She even wants to buy an

4. Power. Despite it’s smaller engine- 700 v. 750, the NT is powerful because of EFI and higher but it’s not all that noticeable. I a UK forum that talked a top speed of about 110 mph(doubt I will experience this

Although I tend to ride on the side, I’m not a power I prefer the mileage(NT gets better gas mileage) In Europe it’s a leading seller and is the Deauville but detractors call it the because of its heaviness(it weighs ten more than the Shadow) and power plant. No problem for me.

We had all the power we needed to ride on the Super Slab 2up but then I was happy with the Shadow 2 up. I about 175 and my wife weighs So both bikes work for us two up for us.

5. in luggage and Givi Top case. The in side hard luggage are each) but with an added 46L top case, we had plenty of space for a 2 up 8 day did do laundry once in route). For my to work, I can just throw my pack in the top case and off I go. Very I had throw over saddle on the Shadow that I only for trips.

Having permanent luggage has convenient. I also like the two glove compartments right the handlebars. I keep the EZ pass in one and sun and other odds and ends in

Again convenient.

6. Maintenance. All I done is change the oil filter and With a center stand and height, it was easier to do than on the The seat can be removed in a minute by on a release lever in the left There’s someone in England who has picture guides for all the basic operations on this bike.

I believe that I will be to do the same basic wrench on this bike that I did on my Removing the fairings will be a but then again, getting the covers off the Shadow was a real as well.

7. Brakes. The dual front brakes really this thing to a stop more quickly. I had been to get an ABS model but they just are not in any numbers yet.

The linked CBS has convinced me that I don’t ABS. When it’s wet and you hit the brake(single disk), it automatically two pistons in the front calipers should be gentle enough to the front wheel locking. I this system.

8. Cost to operate. I get better with the same 87 octane One bigger expense is insurance.

The Sport in the title puts it in a category and lifted my insurance $218 to $400.

Summary- loving this bike and that I’ve got the perfect for me-a gas sipping, practical with some zip and spunk.
