Since its introduction in 2012* the Honda NC750X has enjoyed consistent popularity thanks to a winning formula producing a powerful Dual-purpose bike with great styling. Honda has released an all-new improved 2021 model, here are some of the improvements you can look forward to.
Now for 2021, Honda is building on its core strengths of practicality, do-it-all comfort and handling composure, improving all three. At the same time, there is also a zestier performance, with an injection of extra torque and a boost of top end, with an increased limiter. The addition of electronic riding modes adds to the glamour.
Some of the main improvements to look forward to is a 2kW more peak power, increased redline by 600rpm thanks to new mechanics and shorter ratios on gear changes with a slipper clutch keeping the ride smooth.
3 User modes will be available for Rain, Standard riding & sport, and a customisable USER mode available by Throttle by Wire (TBW). Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) now has a finer level of input over 3 levels, while the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) option features Auto-shifting.
One of the biggest talking points is the improved weight reduction with a huge 6kg lighter from the previous model thanks to a new frame and detail improvements around the engine and bodywork.
A freshly designed LED headlight, taillight and rear indicators, sharper design on the body and more storage space. Lower seat height making the bike more accessible, wind protection and a new LCD Dash have been added.
A larger 23L storage space now holds an adventure-style full-face helmet.
A host of adjustments from the previous model from shorter Showa front fork, Pro-Link monoshock and spring adjustment. The rear monoshock features a spring preload adjuster system with 120mm travel, from 150mm. It operates through Pro-Link that offers an optimised balance of a soft initial stroke, for dealing with low-speed bumps, together with excellent control.
Cast aluminium front and rear wheels – sizes 17 x 3.50-inch and 17 x 4.50-inch – wear 120/70 ZR17 and 160/60 ZR17 tyres. Forged aluminium L-shaped rim valves.
