What do you do with a bike as revolutionary as the class-leading Honda NC700X? How about make it even better, with a list of updates and improvements that put it even further out in front? The best parts haven’t changed: During the week the NC700X is an awesome commuter, while on the weekend it lets you go exploring in the country, or carve up a twisty canyon road. Its parallel-twin engine offers a generous helping of useable torque, and the seating position makes sense for a ride around the block or around your favorite continent. So what’s does it have to offer? How about a larger windscreen for better weather protection; tougher-looking bodywork; a updated front-brake caliper; and a pentagonal muffler for a sharper look and a sound you’re bound to love. The luggage compartment holds even more, a full 22 liters, and comes with a “utility rail” and a storage hook inside the lid. Available in two versions—the conventional six-speed, manual-clutch transmission remains one choice, while a second version is available with an updated version of Honda’s exclusive automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). Even the tires are easier to service, thanks to “L”-shaped valve stems. Powerhouse Twin The NC700X’s 670cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine produces tons of torque and enough power for easy two-up cruising. But it's thrifty, too—the standard transmission version has an estimated fuel economy of 64 MPG. (Honda's fuel economy estimates are based on EPA exhaust emission measurement test procedures and are intended for comparison purposes only. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you ride, how you maintain your vehicle, weather, road conditions, tire pressure, installation of accessories, cargo, rider and passenger weight, and other factors.) Larger Windscreen Larger Windscreen Comfortable over a wide range of speeds, the NC700X’s upright seating position gives you a great view in traffic and is a huge contributor to this bike’s overall capability. A larger windscreen for 2016 makes the cockpit even more comfortable. Integrated Storage Compartment In the real world, we need to carry more than just a cell phone and a credit card. That’s why the NC700X offers an integrated compartment that’s even bigger in 2016, now holding a full 22 liters and featuring a storage hook and a utility rail.
