Honda NC750X Overview
The Honda NC750X is an easy-going, economical bike which is ideal for those looking for an entry-level ‘big’ bike to take them up to the next stage in their biking journey. It has been touted by many owners as the ideal bike for commuting, in large thanks to the additional storage space. It offers a comfortable riding position, a low centre of gravity which makes it ideal for turning at low speed and easy for riders to place their feet on the floor, which can be useful for those who are less confident.
The engine is a step up from that used in the NC700X; this bike offers a 745cc liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder engine which has boosted both the peak power and torque. All bikes in Honda’s NC range can claim to be reliable, well-made and economic rides and although the NC750X isn’t a great choice if you are planning on racing, it is a bike which will do you proud as you ride it out and about around your home city. It handles well, is easy to manoeuvre and is the perfect choice if you are a newer rider who needs stability over the ability to impress.
Price is also something which recommends the NC750X; it isn’t the cheapest middle-weight bike on the market but its fuel economy and high quality build mean that you will save money in the long run. It is also possible to pick up well priced second-hand NC750X bikes if purchasing new is just out of your reach.

The position is perfect but the seat is poor for comfort over 80 miles.
Honda….simple as that, always great build quality.
Certainly good enough
A great bike, that apart from the negative seat comfort rides really well. You have to remember this is a relatively very cheap bike and for the money the ride quality is fantastic
Typical honda bomb proof engine! Never going to score a 5 as it's essentially half a car engine and a low revving one at that.
75 plus mpg easily…. exceptional fuel figures
Upright comfortable ride for long distances and auto gear changes which is brilliant to high traffic areas.
Good build as normally Honda are.
Light, good centre gravity and easy to ride.
Good. I would love it a bit more punchy, like 1000cc
Easy to maintain. MPG is brilliant, approx 62 mpg average.
The front forks are a little harsh, lacking small bump compliance.
Lovely torque everywhere with never a bit of high revving stress
I am averaging 17 miles to a litre and Do Not hold back at all!
Fantastic quality for what they cost
Great brakes, even the rear brake has bite.
Suspension is budget but the motor doesn't trouble it too much. Doesn't soak up bumps so much as transmit directly to the spine.
Good on fuel, all the power you need to commute. Excitement low and gutless two up.
Cheap to run, peanuts and easy to service yourself. Screw and lock nut valve adjustment.
Pretty good. ACF50 is your friend. Lives outside and has worn a few winters pretty well. No reliability issues.
Could do with a dual disc set up at front. No major issues.
Good riding position
Very good on fuel
It's made for comfortable ride and nor for race
Economic in fuel
Had some issues with the digital panel and Honda replaced it for free
Brakes perfectly and has ABS front and rear
Fuel cost low but service costs high
Brakes are not as good as old cbf
Very smooth gear changes, even when you push it
It's pokey, but not a patch on my old 650 bandit
It's great on fuel so far. even when pushed I greet good mpg. much better than my 650 bandit
Too new to rate
Brakes are good with the standard ABS too
It's a Honda
Good brakes, ABS
Budget suspension but surprisingly capable in the twistys.
Clever engine. Regularly at 70-80mph and regularly get 80mpg.
Perhaps a little more power but I wouldn't really want to lose the mpg. That is what it was built for after all…
It's a Honda
Sound. Only a single disc but more then good enough for a bike that isn't destined for the track!
Considering it's an automatic/semi automatic gearbox, it's surprisingly nippy especially in Sports Mode
Honda should have fitted a centre stand.
Usual typical excellent build that you come to expect from Honda
A bike that has wavy discs as standard fitment. You can literally stop on a dime.
Very solid but is heavy but torquey
For a 750 is slow but loads of power when needed. Ideal commuting bike
Is very heavy but you get used to it
None to date
Handles extremely well with a great riding position [upright]. Rear shock is a little hard over long distances. Light enough to wheel around easily [but then my other bike is a Pan European].
With only just over 50bhp, it's not the quickest. However power delivery is smooth and gets to 80 mph and cruises at this speed readily; with a little more time 100+ is easily achievable.
Mirrors; around 30% of view is taken by my elbows. The underseat tank is a pain if using throwover panniers on long trips.
Almost no corrosion after two years of year round riding. I do use ACF50 inhibitor.
The single front disc is effective without being sharp. However regular cleaning off grime on the discs is needed to maintain bite. ABS
It corners well, probably would need to update the suspension to get more out of it
Not very powerful, only revs to about 9K rpm But not sluggish, great for town and also fantastic on fuel consumption.
Suspension, power, breaks and that ugly exhaust.
Great quality, except for the exhaust, which is very heavy and ugly, already exchanged it for an after market one.
Only 1 brake at the front and the disc at the back is on the small side, could do with a bit more B. power
Smooth and easy to handle
Powerful enough for new riders
Bike's weight is very low, so very easy to move. Handles well, despite basic suspension.
A plodder. Takes getting used to the low revving engine, but soon realise it's a gem. Plenty of torque.
Shaft drive would be useful.
Typical Honda. No issue whatsoever
Simple but effective.
Clunkiness of the first gear
