2017 Honda NC750X DCT Review

2017 Honda NC750X DCT on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Smooth power, impressive fuel efficiently, real-world versatility…

The NC750X DCT is available with Honda’s sporty DCT transmission, which allows both paddle-operated manual operation and three levels of automatic shifting. DCT even senses whether the bike is travelling uphill or downhill and selects shifting points and engine braking accordingly. Adaptive Clutch Capability Control assists in on/off throttle situations, reducing pitching motions for smoother riding.

The NC750X is packed with strong new design and improved performance features. Built with a refined 750cc engine, long-travel suspension, and optional Dual Clutch Transmission – it has everything you need to ride fearlessly towards adventure.

The world awaits

The NC750X will help you explore the unknown.

The NC750X has compact, rugged design and new performance features that ensure you explore in both comfort and style. With a high riding position for clear visibility, agile handling, and torquey performance – it’s the perfect travel companion for wherever you’re going. And with impressive fuel economy and large internal storge space, you’ll get there with maximum efficiency, too.


 



2017 Honda NC750X DCT www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Multi-function LCD

Bring NC750X’s dashboard alive with vibrant colours that respond to your ride.

As well as showing typical information like fuel consumption, grip heater temperature and speed, the NC750X’s bigger and brighter LCD dashboard keeps you informed of the bike’s performance with the use of intuitive colour-coded lights.

Five dash display modes to choose from

The dash has five different modes: Optional DCT, Gear, Rev, Eco and Shift – each with their own set of colours that correspond to the bike’s performance. This means you can check what gear the bike is in, the rev count, or even how efficiently you’re riding – all with just a glance of the dash.

Enjoy the ride

Soak up the scenery while the NC750X’s unique Dual Clutch Transmission (Optional DCT) takes care of the gears.

DCT ensures the NC750X makes extremely smooth gear changes without any loss of drive – so you never miss a beat, whether you’re riding to work or heading out for some weekend fun. There are three different modes to match your environment, including the dynamic S (Sport) Mode that gives you a feistier ride with the flick of a switch.

 

 

2017 Honda NC750X DCT www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Strong power & torque

The NC750X’s liquid-cooled, inline-twin engine incorporates numerous advanced and patented technologies. To ensure strong acceleration, ease-of-use in the city and a relaxed character on the highway, the engine delivers exceptionally strong low-rpm performance. The engine’s unique design creates a muscular, easy-to-use powerband not unlike that of a big-bore cruiser.

Distinctive sound and feel

To give the engine a satisfying and distinctive sound and feel, engineers thought way outside the box. An extra balancer shaft was added to inject the engine with just the right amount of “good” vibration. The effect of the twin balancers is to counteract vibration from higher rpm inertia, making the engine feel more refined, yet still with the distinct “throb” delivered by its 270-degree firing order. The intake-port layout inside the cylinder head was carefully designed to create an intentional interference between adjacent ports, which results in subtle combustion variations. In addition, the timing for the opening and closing of the intake valves was set differently for each cylinder. The result of all this? An engine that always lets you know what it’s doing and has a pleasant sound and feel.

Strong performance – less shifting

The six-speed manual transmission complements the powerband by using wide gear ratios – no need to be constantly shifting up and down to maintain strong performance.

DCT transmission

The NC750X is available with Honda’s sporty DCT transmission, which allows both paddle-operated manual operation and three levels of automatic shifting. DCT even senses whether the bike is travelling uphill or downhill and selects shifting points and engine braking accordingly. Adaptive Clutch Capability Control assists in on/off throttle situations, reducing pitching motions for smoother riding.

Free space & terrific handling

The engine’s inline cylinders are canted forward by 62 degrees to help create a low overall centre of gravity for nimble, confidence-inspiring handling, and also to create room for a convenient central storage area where the cylinders and fuel tank would typically be.

Exceptional fuel economy

Through the use of friction-reducing technologies, integrated components (such as running the water pump off the camshaft), precise PGM-FI electronic fuel-injection and efficient combustion, the NC750X engine delivers exceptional fuel economy.

Smaller can be better

The engine’s efficient use of fuel enables the use of a smaller-volume, more-compact fuel tank that still allows ample riding range while giving engineers extra freedom to re-think the optimal placement of other components.

Maximum purification efficiency

The exhaust catalytic converter sits directly beneath the exhaust ports and is activated early when the engine starts. This design lets the combustion gas pass through the catalyst while it is at its hottest, thereby maximizing purification efficiency.

Tuned flex for a smooth ride

Although lightweight, the diamond-shaped steel-tube frame was carefully designed to be very sturdy while also allowing just enough flex to respond smoothly to changing road surfaces. This results in a smooth ride while also letting you feel what the bike is doing. You get comfort when you’re just cruising, and a sporty, fun ride when you’re on your favourite twisty backroad.

Upright & relaxed

Like the engine, the chassis is all about creating a ride that’s fun and user-friendly. The seating position is comfortably upright and relaxed, and the chassis geometry allows the NC750X to manoeuvre nimbly through the city or on winding cottage roads.

Excellent steering leverage & comfort

Seat height is 830 mm and the riding position is upright and neutral, with a high 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.

Showa fork

A Showa Dual Bending Valve fork performs much like a high-end cartridge fork, providing similar smooth action and linear damping force, but at a lighter weight. The result is superior road holding and ride comfort, plus reduced front-end dive under braking.

Aggressive tires

Cast aluminium front and rear wheels, 120/70 ZR17 and 160/60 ZR17 tires, with an aggressive off-road style tread pattern.

ABS power and control

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) provides added confidence during sudden stops or when the road is wet or slippery.

Economical design

Specially designed wave-style brake rotors not only keep unsprung weight low, they also require less energy and use less material during production because the rear rotor fits precisely inside the front rotor, allowing them to be stamped out of a single sheet of stainless steel at once.

Adventurous styling

The NC750X shows off its edgy styling with an agressive front cowl design, LED taillight, and a tall protective windscreen with venting to reduce pressure and turbulence. The result is a bike that’s is comfortable when cruising at speed, with the windscreen and bodywork diverting wind around the rider to minimize fatigue.

Maximized space & better balance

The 14.1-litre fuel tank is accessed beneath the seat at the rear of the bike, with the fuel stored beneath the rider. The tail cowl has been cut short to bring the mass forward, and handy grips have been integrated into the tail section for passenger security.

Large-capacity hidden storage

Where the fuel tank would be on most bikes, the NC750X instead has a large-capacity (22 litre), lockable utility compartment that’s big enough to hold an XL-size helmet. Don’t want to carry all your gear when you arrive at your destination? This handy compartment allows you to quickly stash your helmet, gloves and more out of sight.

Colourful instruments

The LCD instrument display includes a host of customizable features, including nine choices of background colour. You can even set the background colour to change as engine rpm rises and falls, as you shift gears, or to indicate your selected DCT transmission mode.

Wave-style key

Wave-style ignition key is stronger and provides extra security against theft.
