ONE MOTORCYCLE. FOR EVERYTHING
Owners love the NC750X. They love its reliability and safety features. The high build quality, durable styling, do-it-all comfort and versatility makes this bike perfect for the weekday commute, as well as weekend fun. Its innovative features – like built-in storage capacity – win points, as does a characterful twin-cylinder engine that provides considerable torque with impressive fuel efficiency. And Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission, with its choice of Automatic or Manual shifting modes, is a favourite option. Yes, there are many reasons to love the NC750X. And we’ve made it even better.
Ride smart, wherever you’re heading. Sharper, more compact bodywork marks out the individuality of the new NC750X. But it’s even more comfortable, thanks to its lower seat height, as well as a redesigned protective screen. There’s extra storage space, where the fuel tank would be, which is of the features that really separates the NC750X from a standard motorcycle. Increased power for the engine – and a full 6kg weight loss – generates faster acceleration, while four riding modes allow you to tailor overall performance to suit conditions. For complete control, the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) levels have been expanded, with refined traction management, and there’s still the choice of a manual, six-speed transmission (now with slipper clutch) or unique, six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. And, for improved safety, the Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) system operates the rear hazards under hard braking conditions.

Sharper styling and LED lighting
The sharply-styled front fairing offers upper-body wind protection, enhanced by the re-shaped screen. A redesigned LED headlight features a unique running-light signature and is matched with a new LED taillight and indicators.
Intuitive control, lower seat height and more storage room
An LCD dash offers intuitive engagement with the various riding modes, controlled through the left-hand switchgear. At 800mm, the seat height is 30mm lower and the riding position is comfortable, upright and relaxed with great visibility. The storage area increases in volume 1L to 23L and, thanks to a reworking of its internal shape, will now hold an adventure-style full-face helmet.
More powerful, liquid-cooled, SOHC 8-valve parallel twin-cylinder engine with HSTC
Thanks to revised cam timing - carefully balanced between the two cylinders - we've injected an extra 2kW peak power, up to 43.1kW. There's also an extra 600rpm to use, with a redline now set at 7,000rpm. And Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) delivers refined, 3-level management of rear tyre grip.
Throttle By Wire (TBW) control with 4 riding modes
TBW adds the benefit of pre-set riding modes - STANDARD, SPORT and RAIN - to alter engine power and engine braking character (and HSTC intervention level) to suit the conditions you're riding. Additionally, the USER mode allows custom tailoring of engine power and braking, as well as HSTC level - to get them just where you want them.
Six-speed manual gearbox or Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)
The manual gearbox is now managed via a slipper clutch, which is 20% lighter at the lever and manages the rear wheel under rapid downshifting and hard braking. On both manual and DCT versions, for faster around-town acceleration, gears 1-3 use shorter ratios while gears 4-6 have taller ratios. It's a relaxed ride out on the highway - at 60km/h the engine is turning at just 2,500rpm.
Lighter and even easier to handle
Through an extensive redesign of the tubular steel diamond-style frame (and various other detail improvements) we've saved a full 6kg weight. Which, with its low centre of gravity from the forward-inclined engine, makes the NC750X even easier to handle. And that's in all situations, from navigating busy city streets, changing lanes on the highway or flicking through turns out in the country side.
Compliant suspension and strong, smooth braking
The 41mm Showa Dual Bending Valve (SDBV) front forks provide supple bump absorption, large or small, thanks to optimised compression and rebound damping; the rear Pro-Link monoshock features spring preload adjustment. Powerful, smooth braking is at your control thanks to a twin-piston caliper and 320mm wavy disc up front, matched to a rear single-piston caliper, 240mm disc and two-channel ABS.
Travel from Scotland to use this garage, the whole team is A1, top-notch service could not recommend more highly.
