2021 Honda NC750X Specs and Changes

5

The 2021 Honda NC750X specs have been revealed for the European release. The new generation adds more power and RPM, optimises fuel efficiency, decreases weight, has more storage room, a lower seat height, ride modes and a slipper clutch for the 6-speed version. The automatic Dual Clutch Trans remains an option, which gives the NC all the best motorcycle and scooter features.

Changes

It seems that the 2021 Honda NC750X has improved in all departments when compared to the previous generation. There is a 600rpm increase in the rev ceiling on top of the extra 1hp output by the forward-canted parallel-twin engine. This, paired with 6kg less weight due to the brand new frame and detail improvements in the bodywork and around the engine, adds up to make a noticeable difference. Due to this increase in power, the bottom three gears are lower than the previous generation. This enables an increase in off-the-line acceleration.

Both the seat height and suspension has been lowered. The fork distance has been lessened by 18mm, and the rear suspension travel by 30.5mm. The seat height has also been lowered by 30.5mm, retaining off-road practicalities. In addition to these changes to suspension, the NC750X now uses Dunlop Trailmax D603 tires, complimenting the on/off-road capabilities the suspension aims for. The utility has been enhanced with the expanded storage capacity, now sitting at 23 litres, compared to the 22 litres included in the previous generation.

Included on the 2021 Honda NC750X is the proprietary Honda Selectable Torque Control. This adjusts engine power to optimize torque at the rear wheel. It allows the adjustment of engine compression braking, which prevents the rear wheel from skidding while decelerating.

The 2021 model comes with three riding modes, and the DCT version includes a customizable mode. This is further enhanced with the addition of a full-colour LCD. Different modes are used for different riding conditions and surfaces. For instance, you can have different modes set for wet weather, offroad and highway travel. Also included is a standard USB port, allowing smartphones and GPS devices to charge on the go.
