Honda will be showing the world a new edition of the NC750X adventure-style “Crossover Concept” bike at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show next week. The updates are wide-ranging, including the chassis and engine performance, as well as creature comforts and modernized styling.
To make the NC750X more adaptable to conditions, the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) will have three modes, rather than the current choice of Sport or Standard. The muffler is redesigned to be more compact, aiding in mass centralization. Honda also claims in improvement in exhaust tone.
The suspension is getting a revalving for more linear compression and rebound damping, as Honda claims this will improve comfort. Additionally, the rear shock will get spring preload adjustment.
Highway riders will be happy to hear that the windscreen is now 2.75 inches taller, for more protection on the open road. You’ll also be able to carry more cargo, as there is a quart more storage than before, bringing the total to 5.8 gallons.
The NC750X will be available in Japan and Europe, while the United States will continue to get the NC700X.
