Question New 2012 Honda NC700X 700cc Parallel Twin!

Hi All,
Honda's kicking the ball into the biggest open goal it can find launching a 77mpg 700cc parallel twin super scooter at the height of fuel price paranoia. But it's not the version that will attract most interest among existing motorcyclists, for whom getting on any kind of step-thru is like volunteering for puberty reversal either way foregoing both their balls and ability to attract a mate. But they'll definitely be given pause by the next two 700s Honda will serve up in November a naked do-it-all (pictured in the MCN link below) and...

An new adventure-bike-lite to compete with BMW's F800GS and the Triumph Tiger 800XC...
The new Africa Twin?

Early November we will know... At the anual EICMA international Motorcycle Exhibition in Milan, Italy.
