Honda’s ultimate commuting motorcycle wears a tough, adventure look and features a torque-laden parallel twin engine, long travel suspension, internal storage compartment and LCD instruments with personalised colour options.
The NC750X has an adventure-oriented edge, with comfort for rider and pillion. A large windscreen gives great wind protection and there’s plenty of room in the storage compartment positioned where the fuel tank is normally situated, which also has a utility rail built onto its lid. The LED headlight and taillight add class and the instruments – with variable colour display – can be personalised and present a premium image to the rider.
The rear shock absorber features a spring preload adjustment system while Showa front forks are fitted up front. The NC750X’s 745cc twin cylinder engine puts out strong low-to-mid range torque, delivering strong acceleration from very low rpm and now features 2 Level Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), which can also be turned off.
The NC750X offers a 22-litre utility compartment that’s big enough to hold most full-face helmets and then some. Safe, secure and convenient, you'll use it every time you ride.
Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge and two trip meters. The tach bar graph changes colour according to fuel consumption and RPM.
The design of the NC750X’s liquid-cooled, SOHC 8-valve parallel twin-cylinder engine ensures punchy performance in the low-to-mid range. Its relatively long-stroke architecture and specially shaped combustion chambers combine with the high-inertial mass crankshaft to produce large amounts of effortless torque from very low rpm
PGM-FI always injects the exact fuel/air ratio required for a complete and clean burn at all rpm in any riding situation. Electronic Fuel Injection means easy start-ups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
The lightweight pentagon-shaped muffler uses two chambers joined by a hole-punched link pipe, which works with a final resonator chamber to create a deeper, more distinctive sound and exhaust pulse.
The NC750X’s rugged steel diamond frame delivers the high levels of rigidity required for agile, responsive handling in a variety of conditions. It’s also ideal where space is at a premium, since it takes up very little volume but offers superb riding dynamics.
The riding position is upright and neutral, with a higher viewpoint for enhanced hazard perception. Another advantage of this adventure-style riding position is great low-speed control – combined with the low centre of gravity and generous steering lock the result is exceptional low-speed handling and balance.
41mm telescopic forks with 137mm of travel the NC750X strikes a perfect balance between a long-distance and a short-hop street machine. This gives it a wide range of capability, good handling and helps inspire confidence.
The NC750X is available in Australia in Matte Ballistic Black Metallic and Candy Chromosphere Red. Please note images show overseas models, colours and options may vary.
