FWIW I agree with the poster who said they would prefer a conventional fuel tank arrangement. In my case it's 'cos I'd like a 19+ litre tank to go with the 80 Imp MPG and would prefer not to have to lift the seat to access the fuel filler cap. NC's still high on my list though.
Don't worry. I know. The 1200 tenere is pretty high on my list

NC700x "vibrations -- throbbing"

The new Honda has its own forum, as does everything on the planet, and one of the longer threads on this forum is related to mystery "vibrations and or throbbing" which some feel is very uncomfortable. So new buyers be aware that this machine can produce these, "vibrations and or throbbing".

The one I have seems pretty normal. I guess it does some, but only when it is running.

Different for everyone. I had an old Yamaha FZR600R that would make my junk go to sleep in about 10 minutes, followed by my right hand then my left within 20 minutes.

Too bad it didn't put your hands to sleep first. Then you could have played with your junk and it would feel like somebody else was doing it.

God, I love this forum. I hope it never stops.


My K-bike used to put my jaw to sleep. My CB900F used to put my junk to sleep.

Reading all those many user requests here I may say I am so happy the NC is as it is in every point. They could not have done it any better.

HAHA! You guys are ridiculous.

You can definitely feel the power strokes of each cylinder when the bike is idling. The engine doesn't have a huge couple like a Harley and it doesn't bob around inside the frame, it's just the 90 degree firing interval. I can feel vibes when I'm at 5000 RPM but I rarely shift over 3,000 and I cruise at about 55 mph at 3000 RPM in 6th.

This is my first twin. My previous bike was a BMW supermoto with a 650 single. For anyone that thinks this thing vibes, you're out of your ******* mind!

I love this bike!!

I did 150 miles with the wife the other day. Sorry to say she didn't like it. With that said she has over a 100k miles behind me on my BMW's and HD's. The main problem was she had nothing behind her for security. I'm still waiting on my Givi luggage. I also did some washboard dirt and gravel. The suspension sucked on that. I'm sure I'll get it sorted out for her because I love the bike.

It has probably been covered, but is the NC built in Japan, or Thailand

I believe Honda considers this model so important to their future (and bottom line I guess) they actually build it in Japan!
