I apologize to the NC700X Owners

For making fun of that bike. I owned one for two months and sold it. It is a good bike, just not my cup of tea but it is just my opinion.

Didn't mean to offend so many. It's my issue with Honda, not yours.

I'm sorry, and rock on NC-700X owners!

PS. Is it ok if I make fun of that hideous NM4? AKA, the Honda Edsel.

Shouldn't Honda be apologizing to the guys who bought them?

It was actually a very solid bike, just not my style. To me, it looked like an adventure bike, and was really good looking, that is why I bought it. But after a couple of months, it didn't do what I wanted it to do.

But a really good and solid bike with great MPG and the trunk was cool. I do miss the trunk. I had no problem selling it, sold it the day I listed it on Craigs List.

How do you think it would do in a comparison with the new FZ-07?

Well, they are priced pretty close and are both sub 100 HP and will both appeal to new riders. The more practical folks will choose the NC700 and the one's with a wild hair will pick the FZ-07.

Both will get a very good deal.

There is nothing to apologize for. Freedom to make choices is a right we all share. Well, not as much as we used to. But that is a Jo mama topic. I wish some of the decisions that are made could be corrected as easily.

Yeah the pics looked pretty rough on the suspension, any upgrade coming for the front end?

Edit: Also how's the front brake with that setup?

Careful, the NM4, despite what staunch traditionalists insist as "hideous" to behold has been quietly gaining more and more support from open minded riders lately, particularly the ones that have physically laid eyes and hands upon it.

You referred to the NC700X as "not my cup of tea." I wonder to what degree it might be because of the way the low capped RPM New Concept Engine was designed? (Fuel economy and real world riding dynamics)

Think about that engine combined with the only transmission option available in the new NM4 for a second, arguably the perfect combination. It will be impossible for NM4 riders to ever hit and thus complain about the low rev limiter with the Dual Clutch Transmission in one of it's "automatic" modes.

Sure, I guess a rider that doesn't understand what their doing could hit the rev limiter in it's "manual" mode but I doubt many NM4 riders will ever use the "manual" mode outside of novelty.

The front forks are getting new springs and maybe intimidators.The front brakes is ok, not as good as my wife's GS500 with SS line and EBC pads.And I got around 65 mpg on the WABDR. !!.
