2018 - Present

The DCT used by the NC750S features “Adaptive Clutch Capability Control” that manages the amount of clutch torque transmitted. This adds a natural ‘feathered’ clutch feel when opening or shutting off the throttle for a smoother ride. Further refinements include fast operation of the N-D switch on turning on the ignition and a control system in AT mode for gauging the angle of ascent or descent a...




 

2018 - Present

Like the NC750X and Integra, the NC750S is built around a 745cc twin cylinder engine which puts out strong low-to-mid range torque, delivering strong acceleration from very low rpm and returns 28.6km/l (WMTC mode). The engine’s forward-leaning position both lowers the centre of gravity for stable handling, and creates space for a storage compartment where the fuel tank is normally positioned. Th...




 

2018 - Present

The 2018 Honda NC750X`s DCT technology is now in its eighth year of production and gaining popularity year on year on all of the machines that feature it as an option.

Each clutch is independently controlled by its ...




 

2018 - Present

The design of the NC750X has a 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. Its forward-leaning position brings the centre of gravity down ...




 

2016 - Present

The 2016 Honda NC700X has 670cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine, and produces tons of torque and enough power for easy two-up cruising. 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).
