2015 Honda NC700X on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Two-Wheeled Multi-tool…

Honda’s NC700X is a real breath of fresh air in today’s world of specialized motorcycles, a concept in streetbikes, and one that puts the fun in Functional. During the week it’s an awesome commuter. On the weekend it lets you go exploring in the country, or carve up a twisty canyon road. Light, nimble, and with an engine that offers a generous helping of useable torque, it’s all wrapped up in a package that’s big enough for longer rides, but not a handful in tight traffic or in a parking lot. And to sweeten the deal, it’s even available in two versions: one model features a conventional six-speed, manual-clutch transmission, while a second version is available with Honda’s exclusive automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). Plus, the DCT version comes with Honda’s

There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to Honda’s NC700X. We’ve highlighted some of the individual features here, but what we can’t show with a hotspot is just how versatile this machine is. It’s really the best of all worlds when it comes to riding where you want. Maybe best of all, since it’s a Honda, you know that wherever you ride, the NC700X is going to run perfectly, and it will run that way for years to come.

Options & Pricing

As if the NC700X weren’t innovative enough, we’re offering two versions: one with a conventional six-speed transmission and a second with our exclusive Honda Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). DCT lets you shift racecar-style with a pair of “paddle-shift” type buttons on the handlebar, or you can choose automatic mode and the NC700X will upshift and downshift by itself, helping you to concentrate more on the rest of your ride.

2015 Honda NC700X www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

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 gets an estimated 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.


Upright Seating Position

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. Sit on it in the showroom, and you’ll instantly know it just plain makes sense.


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 a 21-liter utility compartment big enough to hold a full-face helmet. Safe, secure and convenient, you’ll use it every time you ride. 2013 model year shown.

2015 Honda NC700X www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Cast Aluminum 17″ Wheels

The 17″ wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from and really help the NC700X offer responsive handling in turns. The cast wheels are light and strong too.

Disc Brakes With Available ABS

Single front and rear disc brakes give the NC700X great stopping power. The brakes are linked rear-to-front and incorporate an anti-lock feature ABS for excellent stopping power, especially under challenging conditions.

41mm Fork

With 5.4″ of travel, the NC700X 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.

Low-Profile Windscreen

The NC700X offers just the right amount of bodywork—enough to offer good wind protection, but not so much that the bike gets heavy or wide.

LCD Instrument Panel

Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge and two trip meters. The meter is light, compact and easy to read, too.

Steel Truss Frame

Light, strong and with just the right amount of stiffness, the NC700X’s rigid and compact chassis is the foundation for precise handling.

Electronic Fuel Injection

Carbureted engines can be fussy when it comes to feeding them fuel. Not the NC700X. Electronic Fuel Injection means easy start-ups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.

670cc Parallel-Twin Engine

With its cylinders tipped 62° forward for better weight distribution, the NC700X’s engine is a big step forward in modern powerplant design. The two-cylinder format produces tons of low- and midrange torque, and the 270°-phase crank and uniaxial primary balancer make it smooth, too.

Optional Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission

Shift with the push of a button, or select the NC700X’s automatic mode and the bike will shift itself. DCT has been a huge hit on our other models, and once you ride an NC700X with DCT, you’ll see why.

Pro-Link HMAS Rear Suspension

Offering 5.9″ of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the NC700X eats up the gnarliest pavement while giving you a smooth ride.

Integrated Storage Compartment

The NC700X offers a 21-liter utility compartment that’s big enough to hold most full-face helmets. Safe, secure and convenient, you’ll use it every time you ride.

Under-Seat 3.7-Gallon Fuel Tank

The under-seat 3.7-gallon fuel tank centralizes mass and enhances overall handling. Locating the fuel tank and filler underneath the passenger seat allows for innovative centralized storage where the fuel tank is normally placed (something along those lines).
