2017 Honda NC700X DCT

/
Way Ahead Of The Curve. And The Pack.

On weekdays the NC700X is an awesome commuter. On weekends it’s a completely different animal. An explorer in the country and a devoted carver on twisty canyon roads. All made possible by the NC700X’s 670cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine offering a generous helping of useable torque, and the seating position for whatever adventure you have in mind.

The bike offers more than endless possibilities. It offers practically endless features. It sports a large windscreen for better weather protection, tough-looking bodywork, and a pentagonal muffler for a tighter look and a sound you’re bound to love. The luggage compartment holds a full 22 liters, and comes with a “utility rail” and a storage hook inside the lid. Available in two versions—the conventional six-speed, manual-clutch transmission remains one choice, while a second version is available with Honda’s exclusive automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). Even the tires are easy to service, thanks to “L”-shaped valve stems. All of these features add up to the most versatile option around, the NC700X.

Emissions

  • Meets current EPA standards. Models sold in California meet current CARB standards and may differ slightly due to emissions equipment.

Innovations

  • LCD INSTRUMENT PANEL: Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge and two trip meters. Plus, the tach bar graph changes color according to fuel consumption, RPM, gear position and more.
  • LOW-PROFILE WINDSCREEN: The NC700X offers just the right amount of bodywork—enough to offer good wind protection, but not so much that the bike gets heavy or wide.
  • 41mm FORK: With 5.4 inches of travel, the NC700X strikes a perfect balance between a long-distance and a short-hop street machine. This gives it a wide range of capability, good handling and helps inspire confidence.
  • CAST ALUMINUM 17-INCH WHEELS: The 17-inch wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from and really help the NC700X offer responsive handling in turns. The cast wheels are light and strong too.
  • DISC BRAKES: Single front and rear disc brakes give the NC700X great stopping power. The DCT model comes with ABS brakes which are linked rear-to-front for stopping power, even under challenging conditions.
  • INTEGRATED STORAGE COMPARTMENT: The NC700X offers a 22-liter utility compartment—that’s big enough to hold most full-face helmets and then some. Safe, secure and convenient, you'll use it every time you ride.
  • ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION: Carbureted engines can be fussy when it comes to feeding them fuel. Not the NC700X. Electronic Fuel Injection means easy start-ups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
  • STEEL TRUSS FRAME: Carbureted engines can be fussy when it comes to feeding them fuel. Not the NC700X. Electronic Fuel Injection means easy start-ups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
  • 670cc PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE: With its cylinders tipped 62° forward for lower center of gravity, the NC700X'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.
  • AUTOMATIC DUAL-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION (DCT): Shift with the push of a button, or select the NC700X's automatic mode and the bike will shift itself and offers three modes in the “S” setting, depending on the kind of performance you want. DCT has been a huge hit on our other models, and once you ride an NC700X with DCT, you'll see why.
  • PRO-LINK HMAS REAR SUSPENSION: Offering 5.9 inches of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the NC700X eats up the gnarliest pavement while giving you a smooth ride.
  • UNDER-SEAT 3.7-GALLON FUEL TANK: Offering 5.9 inches of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the NC700X eats up the gnarliest pavement while giving you a smooth ride.
