I had my Honda touring shield installed at the shop. There were some scratches around the bolt holes. I saw them only in the bright sunlight last week.
I'd say, install it yourself.

It is just marketing in the USA, I think.
There are no 2013 models. Many times in the US, they launch new models and predate them to the next year.

Sorry to hear about this.

The long stroke and fuel efficiency of the Honda Jazz motor is famous. They took half (2 cylinders) and made the NC700X.
In Europe we talk about 3-4L / 100km. That is super good!

Hi there,
my current bike could be a good candidate for a new rider.
Honda NC700X.
Very good quality from Honda and comes with a very low price (IMHO).
