Increasing pressure will definitely decrease your rolling resistance coefficient but I'd rather not gamble with my motorcycle to improve economy. You'll square-off the tires faster and may be dangerous in the process.

Overinflate your car tires...not motorcycle....

I think it will be around for me to buy my 13 and 10 year old boys one. But that's just me wanting to complete my Arctic adventure.

Interesting. NC's went 500 euro's up in Europe. I think it has to do with the new 500's (to make the gap between em bigger).

The CTX is expected for 2014 in Europe though, which suprises me. I'm curious how the CTX will do in Europe since cruisers are not a really populair segment over here.

Has anyone purchased the maintenance manual for the NC? If so, where and what is the general cost?

Mine was $60 or $65 through the dealer or you can order it directly from Helm.
