Honda NC700 (NC750)
The Honda NC 700 (NC 750) road bike series was first introduced in 2011, and serial production and sales began in 2012 in Japan, Europe, North America and Oceania. In total, 2 modifications of the Honda NC700 model were presented:
- Honda NC700S - road version.
- Honda NC700X - enduro touring version.
Both modifications are built on a single base and differ in appearance, ergonomics, overall dimensions and suspension travels.
Of the key features of the NC 700 series, first of all, the engine should be highlighted, which was created on the basis of an automobile engine from Honda Jazz: the block was reduced to 2 cylinders, instead of the usual crankshaft, a 270 ° crankshaft was used. In total, the NC700 engine turned out to be low-speed, but demonstrating excellent traction throughout the entire range and record fuel efficiency, officially declared within 3.5 liters per 100 kilometers.
Another important feature of the NC 700 is the availability of versions with an automatic transmission (DCT - dual clutch transmission) with two clutches. These modifications are indicated by the letters D in the name: NC700SD / NC750SD, NC700XD / NC750XD.
Also, the models are equipped with an ABS system. Such modifications have the letter A in the name: NC700SA / NC750SA, NC700XA / NC750XA. An important nuance is that the NC700 models were equipped with ABS with combined brakes (C-ABS), subsequent versions (NC750) were equipped with a conventional ABS system, without combined brakes.
In 2014, the NC700 was upgraded to the NC750, increasing the engine capacity by 76 cc. see (from 669 to 745), having received a double balance shaft, a new muffler, an on-board computer and other changes. The indicators of power and torque increased slightly (50 hp -> 54 hp, 61 Nm -> 68 Nm).
In 2016, the NC750 series models were again subjected to changes. In addition to the redesigned appearance (new wheel color, new dashboard), the models receive a new muffler, an enlarged trunk, LED headlights and lights, new front suspension settings, 7-step rear suspension adjustment and additional gearbox modes in versions with an automatic transmission.
On the basis of the engine and chassis Honda NC 700 (NC 750) were built models Honda CTX700 and Honda NM4 Vultus.
