Great Looking Bike!

Nice bike and nice pictures!

Last year I had the opportunity to ride several thousand kilometers through Peru on a Brazilian-built Honda NX400 Falcon, and the NC700X looks like an updated big brother to the 400.

As you can see in the Ride Report above, the little 400 was absolutely bulletproof, handling deep water crossings and 14,000 ft Andean mountain passes as well as the twisty switchbacks. Although a little short on power, the bike was nearly perfect for the type of riding I did.

I have a feeling the NC700X is going to be an awesome utility bike too; very good as an urban commuter, decent on the road, and better in dirt than people are expecting.



I am really looking forward to a test ride!
