MOTORCYCLES - Honda 2017 ultimate commuter Bike
16 November 2016
2017 HONDA NC750X
Model updates: Honda’s ultimate commuting motorcycle was made more adventurous and even more practical for 2016 with a tough new look, LED lighting, revised front fork damping, expanded storage compartment plus LCD instruments with personalised colour options. The Dual Clutch Transmission machine received 3-level Smode, plus further software upgrades in both MT and AT riding modes. The frugal 750cc parallel twin gained EURO4 compliance and a revised exhaust muffler adding a much deeper tone. For 2017, the NC750X will be available in a new Candy Prominence Red.
Since its introduction in 2012* the NC750X has enjoyed consistent popularity throughout Europe, making it a permanent fixture in the ranks of Europe’s top ten bestselling motorcycles.
Reasons for its success are several: its ground-breaking, torque-laden twin-cylinder engine, which sips fuel while punching the bike forward in the low-to-mid rpm ranges, the relaxed, roomy riding position, wide handlebars and comfortable seat and riding position, the compliant, long-travel suspension and distinctive adventure styling all play their part.
The storage compartment (where the fuel tank would normally be) capable of holding a full-face helmet and Honda’s unique DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) that over a third of customers choose are further features that set the NC750X apart.
As a total package, the NC750X’s qualities combine to create a motorcycle which functions superbly. For all types of riding - commuting, touring and simply riding for pleasure - it is a motorcycle with compelling all-round appeal. In 2016, both form and function were enhanced further, building on the NC750X’s innovative DNA and making it feel – and work – even better again.

2017 HONDA NC750S
Model updates: new colour Honda’s user-friendly naked commuter NC750S received an extensive update for 2016, including EURO4 compliance and LCD instruments with personalised colour options, plus two Special Edition two-tone paint editions with LED lighting. The Dual Clutch Transmission machine received 3-level Smode and further software upgrades in both MT and AT riding modes. A short, pentagon-shape exhaust muffler added a deeper tone. For 2017, the NC750S will be available in a new Candy Prominence Red.
The NC750S is an exceptionally user-friendly motorcycle: easy to ride and easy on the pocket in terms of both initial purchase and running costs. It attracts riders of all ages including both experienced riders looking for a capable and economic motorcycle to tackle the city traffic, as well as new, younger riders stepping up from smaller machines looking equally for performance, economy, practicality and pleasure from their first ‘big’ motorcycle.
And that’s exactly what they get from the NC750S. Its parallel twin-cylinder engine packs the low-to-midrange with effortless torque; capacious storage space where the fuel tank normally sits and the option of Honda’s unique Dual Clutch Transmission set it apart from the crowd of mid-sized naked machines. When combined with a compact form, confidence-inspiring chassis and exceptional fuel economy, the result is a uniquely accessible and practical motorcycle.
Since the original launch in 2012 – as the NC700S – continuous development has seen Honda deliver more of what every rider liked about the machine, and the concept behind it. For the next step, for 2016 form and function were enhanced in equal measure, making that first ‘big’ motorcycle experience even better.
