I want to take a look at both bikes in person by spring time, since I'm in the market for a commuter bike I'm still leaning towards the nc because of the "frunk".
Honda are saying 76mpg (imperial).
And now we know why these bikes aren't 700cc, as Honda have just released details of two more 700cc bikes to complement the 700x.
