Since its debut in 2012, the all-round practicality and performance of the NC750X (originally NC700X) has seen it consistently in Europe’s top ten best-selling motorcycles. For the 2016 model year, Honda will update the model. Though the new NC750X will make its debut only next week, Honda has already published a short press release with the list of the updates.
For 2016 substantial upgrades include:
- A comprehensive design change for a more rugged, adventurous look in common with Honda’s other “X’ crossover models
- LED headlights and taillights
- 70mm taller windscreen for reduced rider fatigue
- Three levels of S mode for the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) version to cover a wider range of riding scenarios and styles
- New Showa “dual-bending” valve front fork for optimal linear suspension behavior on both compression and rebound; pre-load adjustable rear shock
- Increased helmet storage area (21 to 22 litres), situated where the fuel tank is on standard models
- New compact lightweight muffler producing a deeper note for the distinctive pulse created by its 745cc parallel twin engine with 270 degree phase crank.
