ONE MOTORCYCLE. FOR EVERYTHING
Owners love the NC750X. They love its reliability and safety features. The high build quality, durable styling, do-it-all comfort and versatility makes this bike perfect for the weekday commute, as well as weekend fun. Its innovative features – like built-in storage capacity – win points, as does a characterful twin-cylinder engine that provides considerable torque with impressive fuel efficiency. And Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission as an option, with its choice of Automatic or Manual shifting modes, is a popular and unique option.
There are many reasons to love the NC750X. And we’ve made it even better.
- Sharper, more aggressively minimal styling
- New LED headlight/taillight, indicators and LCD display
- New screen improves wind and weather protection
- Larger 23L storage space now holds an adventure-style full-face helmet
Engine and Chassis
- Throttle By Wire and an extra 3kW peak power: 43.1kW with 69Nm torque
- Shorter first three gear ratios for sportier feel, plus an extra 600rpm to the redline
- Slipper clutch reduces lever load 20%, manages rear wheel on down changes
- Throttle By Wire delivers 3 default riding modes, plus USER customisation
- Honda Selectable Torque Control features much finer control, and 3 levels of intervention
- Kerb weight a full 6kg lighter
- Seat height 30mm lower
Ride smart, wherever you’re heading.
Sharper, more compact bodywork marks out the individuality of the new NC750X. But it’s even more comfortable, thanks to its lower seat height, as well as a redesigned protective screen. There’s extra storage space, where the fuel tank would be, which is of the features that really separates the NC750X from a standard motorcycle. Increased power for the engine – and a full 6kg weight loss – generates faster acceleration, while four riding modes allow you to tailor overall performance to suit conditions.
For complete control, the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) levels have been expanded, with refined traction management, and there’s still the choice of a manual, six-speed transmission (now with slipper clutch) or unique, six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. And, for improved safety, the Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) system operates the rear hazards under hard braking conditions.
2kW more peak power for the NC750X’s EURO5-spec engine, plus an extra 600rpm to the redline are the headline changes, thanks to work on valve timing and intake/exhaust efficiency. Shorter ratios for first, second and third gears smarten response while a slipper clutch reduces lever load and keeps the ride smooth on rapid downshifts.
Throttle By Wire (TBW) brings with it adjustable engine character through 3 default rider modes - RAIN, STANDARD and SPORT plus a customisable USER mode. Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) now has a finer level of input over 3 levels, while the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) option features Automatic shifting schedules that integrate with the riding modes, as well as USER control.
The other attention-grabber is the 6kg weight loss, thanks to a new frame and detail improvements around the engine and bodywork. There’s also a sharper, more minimalist edge to the bodywork, with fresh style for both LED headlight, taillight and rear indicators, while the redesigned storage space grows in volume and usability. Seat height is reduced 30mm, the screen offers more wind protection and a new LCD dash is an attractive addition.
With Throttle By Wire now managing engine performance and character there are 3 modes for the rider to choose from for various riding conditions. Mode selection is managed between the left-hand switchgear and the LCD display.
SPORT gives more aggressive delivery of engine power and braking, with low HSTC intervention and DCT mode 4.
RAIN delivers engine power and braking least aggressively, has high HSTC intervention and Level 1 for the DCT shift pattern.
STANDARD delivers a balanced middle point for engine power delivery, engine braking and HSTC intervention, plus mode 2 for the DCT.
USER offers custom options of low/medium/high for delivery of engine power and engine braking, low/medium/high/off for HSTC, and four different shift patterns for DCT.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) is fitted as standard on both the manual and DCT NC750X. It now offers much softer, finer control as it manages rear wheel torque thanks to TBW, over 3 levels as opposed to 2:
Level 1 allows the minimum intervention for some rear wheel spin – on gravel or dirt for instance, and its level of control is reduced from the previous design.
Level 2 is the default setting and provides confidence-inspiring traction for general riding conditions.
Level 3 provides maximum control for slippery roads.
HSTC can also be switched OFF.
Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)
- Differing shifting schedules employed depending on riding mode selected
- USER mode allows choice of 4 settings
- Adaptive Clutch Capability Control gives natural feel
Having arrived on the market on the VFR1200F in 2010, Honda’s unique-in-motorcycling DCT technology is now in its eleventh year of production. Over 140,000 DCT-equipped motorcycles have been sold in Europe since introduction, and 52% of customers chose the DCT option for the NC750X in 2019.
The ‘easy and direct’ DCT technology delivers consistent, seamless gear changes up or down and very quickly becomes second nature in use. It uses two clutches: one for start-up and 1st, 3rd and 5th gears: the other for 2nd, 4th and 6th, with the mainshaft for each clutch located inside the other for compact packaging.
Each clutch is independently controlled by its own electro-hydraulic circuit. When a gear change occurs, the system pre-selects the target gear using the clutch not currently in use. The first clutch is then electronically disengaged as, simultaneously, the second clutch engages.
The result is a consistent, fast and seamless gear change. Furthermore, as the twin clutches transfer drive from one gear to the next with minimal interruption of the drive to the rear wheel, any gear change shock and pitching of the machine is negligible, making the change feel direct as well as smooth. Extra benefits include durability (as the gears cannot be damaged by missing a gear) impossibility of stalling, low stress urban riding, reduced rider fatigue, and extra ‘brain space’ to concentrate more on all other aspects of riding.
With the DCT gearbox, the rider may choose Manual mode, using paddle-style triggers on the left handlebar to change gear, or Automatic mode. In Automatic mode for the NC750X, 4 different shifting schedules operate, with 3 defaults: Level 1 is the most relaxed, and is used within RAIN mode; Levels 2 and 4 shift up at higher rpm and are linked with STANDARD and SPORT riding modes.
Within the USER riding mode, a fourth DCT shift pattern – between those for STANDARD and SPORT in terms of ‘aggressiveness’ can be chosen.
Adaptive Clutch Capability Control is a feature of the NC750X’s DCT and manages the amount of clutch torque transmitted. This adds a natural ‘feathered’ clutch feel when opening or shutting off the throttle for a smoother ride.
