Go test ride the two and see what you think. The NC700 is a sweet bike, rather tame, but a nice feeling to it. The F700 has bottom end guts, more acceleration, and more ready for off the pavement. If I spent most of my time in town, I'd consider the NC700; for bumpy, washboardy roads with potholes, I like the F700. What do you want to do?

Saw both bikes today at IMS in Novi today. Lots of interest with the NC 700 and I really liked the 500x by Honda also. Don't know how that would drive vs the 700. I was so impressed with 500x I almost forgot about 700GS BMW . It is a very nice bike sits nice and I know performance would be much better. But is it $4000 more better? Probably but I want to still check out 500x and they will be in dealers soon and we will get a riders report from someone?

Hap.
There is only one way you can solve this dilemna.You say the 4000 price difference doesnt matter.You have to ride both bikes and then you can decide if the gs is the bike for you or indeed if the 4000 is not worth it.
If it is not possible to ride both bikes i would buy the NC700 If ,like the wee strom you dont like it you will have to take the hit,sell it and then buy the gs.I would like to think selling a new NC 700 would create a fair bit of interest.I really think there is a market of thoughtfull conservative people for this bike and you wont have any troble selling it.Motorcyclists are conservative,you will prolly have more trouble selling the auto.
