The NC750X was introduced in 2012 and since its launch it has become a bestseller for the Japanese brand. Honda has adapted this model to the Euro5 regulations, maintaining that character of practicality for urban use, for weekend routes or for traveling with a companion.
In the design section, a more sporty design is appreciated, with more angular lines and where the new headlight with LED technology stands out on the front, as well as the rest of the lighting system, which has also been redesigned and now has turn signals. self-canceling.
A model that is available in four color finishes: blue, red, black and white, like the unit that Honda Motos Valencia gave us to carry out the test.
At the ergonomics level we also find changes, with a seat height now lower and that is located at 800mm, so with 1.70, you reach the ground perfectly with both feet. In addition, the Japanese brand has developed a new windshield screen that offers greater aerodynamic protection than in the previous version and optionally, we can equip this model with a taller screen, for those users who are taller or who regularly travel with this model.
At the controls it offers us a fairly upright position and a wide handlebar, so the driving position is the usual one in this type of asphalt trail bikes that seek ride comfort and be able to make long runs of kilometers without excessive fatigue.
But if there is one aspect the NC750X is renowned for, it is the cargo space where the fuel tank should be located. In this 2021 version it increases its capacity to 23 liters, being able to store an adventure-style full face helmet and optionally, we can include a USB socket to charge our mobile phone, an equipment that we understand that today should come standard.
In addition, for those of you who are thinking of this model to travel, Honda has developed a complete set of trunk and suitcases to expand its load capacity as well as different accessory packs.
We went to the motorization section and to adapt to the Euro5 regulations, the engine had to undergo changes. Now the NC750X delivers almost 58 hp, 4 more than in the previous version and the parallel twin is 1.2 kg lighter than its predecessor.
The ignition cut line increases to 7,000rpm and if we add to this a change in the ratio of the first three gears, it shows that now we have better acceleration and a more sporty behavior. To reduce consumption Honda has also modified the development from 4th to 6th gear, which increases its autonomy and which the brand places at about 400 kilometers.
Another improvement is that it now comes equipped with an anti-rebound clutch and that helps us to reduce a possible rear wheel lock in strong reductions. If you have the A2 card, this model is also available with the limitation to 35Kw.
The Japanese brand has increased the electronic load of this model and we find a new electronic accelerator that manages the 3 preconfigured driving modes (standard, rain and sport) in addition to a fourth called USER that allows us to manage the delivery of power, engine brake or torque control.
In addition, the latter increases up to 3 levels of intervention and that is disconnectable. A set of electronics that is also adapted to the version with the DCT automatic transmission. All the changes can be made from the left pineapple and that are visible on the new LCD screen, another of the improvements of this version. An instrumentation panel with good visibility and that shows the information necessary for day to day, very clearly.
Within the cycle part we also find important novelties with a revised and lighter frame and that is that the NC750X reduces its weight by 6 kilos compared to the previous version and is in running order at 214Kg including 14 liters of capacity in the fuel tank.
Honda has revised the suspensions with new adjustments for the conventional 41mm fork that reduces its travel to 120mm, while the rear shock, which is adjustable in preload, also reduces its travel. This has helped lower the seat height to 800mm.
A set of suspensions that are now slightly more plumb and that improve ride comfort. At the braking level, it continues to mount the joint solvent that it already equipped in the previous version, with a 320mm front disc and two-piston caliper and a 240mm rear disc, working with a dual-channel ABS. Efficient braking that meets the type of driving for which this model is aimed.
In summary, Honda has not only adapted the NC750X to the Euro5 regulations to extend its useful life, but has also improved a model that already stood out for its versatility, with a side as an urban motorcycle to move around the city on a daily basis, perform a weekend outing or face a trip with a companion to enjoy our vacations.
