Japan automaker Honda has teased a new updated version of the Honda NC750X ahead of the official launch of the motorbike at the Tokyo Motor Show. The new version of Honda NC750X, which is expected to debut on November 16, has been a consistently big seller in Europe for Honda since the motorbike was first launched in 2012 thanks to the combination of reliability, frugal petrol consumption and the rugged off-road styling.
One big change about this new updated version is that it will get more aggressive look to match its cousin, the VFR800X Crossrunner, the next biggest road-biased adventure model in Honda’s lines.
The new version carries the company’s “Crossover Concept” formula, and features a revised styling to bring it more inline with the other X models in the Honda lineup. A reprogrammed dual clutch transmission (DCT) with S-mode levels, rather than the two choices - Sports or Standard - offered currently. An increased helmet storage capacity is also available, up from 21 liters to 22 liters.
Other 2016 changes include a new LED lights and taillights, redesigned mufflers for producing richer beat and better maneuverability, a 70 mm taller widescreen, a preloaded adjustable rear shock, an optimized chassis, a powertrain, and a new lightweight silencer that produce a deeper exhaust role note from the improved 745cc parallel twin engine. In addition, there’s also a new Showa dual-bending valves front forks to optimize linear suspension behavior on both compression and rebound.
The new updated version of Honda NC750X is the next evolution of Honda’s NC750X line-up, a bike designed to offer more of what every bike rider liked about the original Honda models.
In addition to the new version of Honda NC750X, the company also revealed a 2016 iteration of Honda VFR1200X which include a new manually adjustable windscreen, dual clutch transmission updates, and software updates to make the DCT work better on hills.
