NC700S / Overview

New Concept – Fun Naked 

The NC700S is the product of a simple requirement: to deliver a motorcycle that is fun to ride and user-friendly at a reasonable price. The NC700Soffers the practicality of a commuter together with distinctive styling of a naked and fun ride-ability, combined with sharp mid-capacity handling and performance.

The development theme for the NC700S was ‘New Concept – Fun Naked’. Right from the beginning, the NC700S had to be fun to ride. For this, handling is a key element, and the NC700S offers a direct, intuitive, confidence-inspiring ride for all levels of experience. The low seat position adds to the accessibility of the machine, and the engine appeals to all kinds of rider, with its smooth, responsive power and a strong feeling of low-rpm torque. The result is a machine that brings instant joy to anyone who rides it.

As well as being fun, the machine had to be easy to use and versatile. The riding position gives a high degree of control and freedom; there is also a secure internal storage space large enough to accommodate a full-face helmet, a practical feature not normally offered on a naked. The motorcycle is available with both Honda’s antilock Combined Braking System (C-ABS) and the option of the second generation of Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission, which offers fingertip manual operation or the ease of completely automatic functionality.

At the heart of the machine is an all-new purpose-built engine. The liquid-cooled, in-line 2-cylinder 670cc engine is a lightweight and compact unit with a low centre of gravity. It offers a usable power delivery with excellent torque at low to medium engine rpm, combined with low emissions and a truly outstanding level of fuel efficiency.

The NC700S fuses striking, futuristic design, a pure riding experience and low running costs. All this is complemented by the versatility and ease of use that are important for a daily commuting machine. At its core lay the fundamentals of motorcycling; fun, low-cost and mobility.
