2017 Honda NC700X

Although the Honda NC700X looks the part of an adventure bike, it is very much a street bike. From the 17-inch wheels to the limited suspension travel (less than six inches at each end), this is a street bike that won’t handle much more than high-quality dirt roads.

Regardless, the NC700X does make for an excellent commuter bike that can also be taken out on the weekend for light-duty touring. To make things simple, a 23-quart storage box sits where you expect the gas tank to be; the 3.7-gallon fuel tank is under the seat.

The 2017 NC700X comes in two flavors. There’s the standard bike with a manual six-speed transmission, and then there’s the version we prefer—the NC700X DCT, which also includes Combined ABS. The DCT system is nearly flawless, and makes the low-revving NC700X much easier to ride effectively, while the Combined ABS improves braking while also making the process simpler and safer—well worth the additional $600 for the upgrade.

Also, the Candy Red paint looks great in 2017, with the silver and black accents.
