THE NEW NC750X: DO IT ALL, AND BETTER THAN EVER
Specialization may be fine for something like golf clubs, but we think great motorcycles should be able to do it all. Case in point: The 2021 Honda NC750X. This is a bike is for motorcyclists who appreciate both versatility and virtuosity in their adventure machines. This year, we’ve given this model some big improvements. More power. A larger integrated storage area. Lighter weight, and a lower seat height. Plus some huge technologic upgrades like throttle by wire, selectable riding modes, new instruments, a new frame, upgraded bodywork, and standard ABS. At its heart, the twin-cylinder engine produces a broad torque curve as well, making it a joy to ride. And you can choose from two transmissions: a conventional manual-clutch six-speed, or Honda’s revolutionary automatic DCT. Either way, this latest NC750X is going to be the perfect one-bike choice for the rider who wants to do it all.
Honda SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL
With Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) you can choose a level which allows some rear-wheel spin—on gravel or dirt for instance—or pick a second level which reduces wheel spin, particularly on slippery roads. It’s a great feature that helps make the NC750X even more versatile. (Available on DCT model only.)
INTEGRATED STORAGE COMPARTMENT
The 2021 NC750X offers a larger 23-liter utility compartment that’s big enough to hold most full-faced helmets with a visor, and then some. Safe, secure and convenient, you’ll use it every time you ride.
745cc PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE
With its cylinders tipped 62° forward for lower center of gravity, the NC750X’s engine is a big step forward in modern powerplant design. The two-cylinder format produces tons of low-and mid-range torque, and the 270°-phase crank and uniaxial primary balancer make it smooth, too. And for 2021, we’ve boosted the NC750X’s horsepower, and bumped up the redline by 600 RPM!
The NC750X offers just the right amount
of bodywork—enough to offer good wind protection, but not so much that the bike feels heavy or wide.
