The NC700X crossover offers the long-travel suspension, agility and commanding riding position of an off-road bike in an overall package with high standards of stability, braking and engine performance. It promises a fun, engaging riding experience together with the practicality and ease of use that make it a machine eminently suitable for daily commuting.
At the heart of the NC700X is a purpose-built engine and transmission package. The liquid-cooled, in-line 2-cylinder 670cc engine is a lightweight and compact unit with a low centre of gravity. It offers a very usable power delivery with strong levels of torque at low to medium rpm combined with low exhaust gas emissions and outstanding fuel economy (78.8mpg WMTC mode. Tested in D-Mode). On the NC700X there is the option to enjoy this new engine with the second generation of Honda's innovative Dual Clutch Transmission, offering both manual gear shifting and fully automatic functionality - a suitably advanced and versatile core for an innovative new motorcycle.
The NC700X has been designed with a secure internal storage space large enough to accommodate a full-face helmet, located where you would typically find the fuel tanks. Offered with Honda's Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS) as an option. It offers the practicality of a commuter with easy handling in a crossover.
Innovative two-cylinder engine
Developed to provide responsive power and strong torque in a compact package, the new 670cc inline two-cylinder engine also meets the demands of today's environmental concerns by being highly fuel-efficient (78.8mpg) for a tank range of nearly 250 miles.
Versatility and practicality
With its internal storage compartment, protective fairing and windscreen and commanding riding position, the NC700X is ready for anything, whether city or long distance riding.
Joyous and intuitive handling
Light in weight, pure and swift in its handling responses, the NC700X is fun and easy to handle.
Using the same rigid and compact steel diamond frame as the NC700S, the NC700X uses its own unique suspension package to deliver a supremely adaptable chassis.
The NC700X has a rugged styling suggestive of its limitless usability.
Optional Dual Clutch Transmission (available at an extra cost)
The NC700X is available with either a conventional manual 6-speed transmission or the second generation of Honda's Dual Clutch Transmission. The system uses two hydraulic controlled clutches to deliver swift and very smooth gear changes in a choice of three modes. Manual (MT) allows the rider to shift gears using buttons, while automatic mode (AT) offers two settings: S for sporty riding and D for everyday use.
Designed for purpose
Early in the development of the NC700X, new research yielded some key data regarding the typical engine use of a rider commuting on a mid-capacity machine. It was determined that 90% of riding involved speeds of 140km/h (87mph) or less and engine speeds of 6000rpm or less. The NC700X demanded a new engine ideally suited to this kind of usage, with strong torque characteristics across the rpm range typically used providing ease of use, thanks to its flexibility and outstanding fuel efficiency.
All-new twin-cylinder engine
The liquid-cooled SOHC 670cc twin-cylinder engine has been designed to meet the challenges of theee 21st century. It is smooth, clean, fuel efficient and compact, bbbbbbbbbbbbbut it is also fun to usse, with a strong low-rpm power delivery thanks to its relatively long-stroke SOHC architecture and specially shaped combustion chambers. Further enhancing this satisfying feeling of effortless torque is the crankshaft, which has been designed with high levels of inertial mass.
The NC700X will be produced with two different specifications of engine. One produces a peak power output of 38.1kW at 6,250rpm and 62Nm of torque at 4,750rpm; the other, specifically offered with the 2013 A2 European licensing regulations in mind, produces 35.0kW at 6,250rpm and 60Nm of torque at 4,750rpm.
Practical, efficient and reliable
The in-line two-cylinder configuration is both practical and efficient in terms of space layout, freeing up space within the body of the motorcycle. By reducing the number of parts to a minimum the engine is lighter, more efficient and more reliable. For example there is just one throttle body and one exhaust, despite the two cylinders. Where possible, components are made to do more than one job too. The camshaft also drives the water pump for the cooling system, while the balancer shaft, which ensures smooth, comfortable running, also drives the oil pump.
To further reduce fuel consumption, the engine was developed using stoichiometric analysis. By analysing combustion in this way, the engine has been developed to deliver exactly the fuel/air ratio required for a complete, clean burn at all idle engine rpm. An efficiency target of 76.2mpg per litre was accomplished thanks to these technology developments. Such low fuel consumption target is attractive given the sense of responsibility we all feel towards our environment. It also makes the NC700X more practical on a day-to-day basis, since a fuel-efficient vehicle is cheaper to run and requires fewer fuel stops over a given week of commuter travel.
Clean exhaust emissions
Thanks to the same stoichiometric analysis, used to reduce fuel consumption, the engine also burns extremely cleanly, minimising the emission of harmful exhaust gases. The PGM-FI fuel injection system supplies the optimum amount of fuel and is fully EURO-3 compliant thanks to an oxygen sensor in the exhaust. Finally the high-absorption catalyser has been located close to the engine. As a result the catalyst reaches operating temperature more quickly after a cold start, reducing harmful emissions over a typical journey.
The 2013 NC700X is available in four colours.
- Darkness Black Metallic
- Digital Silver Metallic
- Pearl Sunbeam White
- Magna Red
