Honda NC700X Bike Overview
Affordability and capability are the name of the game when it comes to the Honda NC700X. If you are new to biking and want something which you can just jump on and ride away then the NC700X has been designed for that very purpose. Honda said they wanted to create a bike that anyone could ride and that certainly seems to be the case with the NC700X. This is a bike which offers comfort and stability alongside an economic tank. It hasn’t been built to race along on long, open stretches of road but if you are just starting out then this is a good bike to begin your journey with.
For seasoned bikers there isn’t much to get excited about, but for those who want a good entry-level bike then read on. The engine is simple but effectively with a decent amount of grunt and the ability to handle itself well either commuting through cities or riding on the motorway. As with all Honda bikes everything from the chassis to the electronics feels well made and high quality; this is a bike which feels like it could really last the test of time, no matter what you put it through.
The main selling point for the NC700X has got to be the price. New bikes retail for just under £6000 with many extras coming as standard including an Anti-Lock Braking system. Storage is also impressive for a bike of this size, with the storage compartment being placed where the tank on a normal bike would be. If you want a clean, economic and easy to ride bike which can be bought at a snip then the Honda NC700X should be seriously considered.

Comfy riding position
Build quality has been great. Only wear and tear parts been required.
Brakes work as they should.
Very smooth and responsive ride
Fast enough for the commute, far too slow for the track.
Very cheap, 80mpg without trying ?
It's not a sports bike but happy to be thrown around
This has a good low down grunt, it revs out at 6200rpm, happy with this as not bothered about the top end
Standard exhaust to quiet and could do with a hugger as standard.
It's a Honda what else needs saying
ABS good brakes enough to bring her to a stop on 2 fingers
It's automatic so great round town or for someone like me with wrist injuries.
In London sometimes you need a little more aggression to avoid the idiots
More windshield for faster riding and rain protection.lack of clutch can be dangerous in the snow for turning.
At 30,000 it had rear bearings go. This was a fault and was fixed under warranty other than that 80,000 trouble free.
Waves discs, ABS, combined braking system. Maybe a little overkill for the power.
As a commuter it's a great ride.
Very economical engine and running costs.
No problems except the kick stand engine kill switch malfunctioning but it's easily replaced.
Brakes are good.
