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.

City Bike Shootout! BMW C600 Sport vs Honda NC700X vs Kawasaki Versys - On Two Wheels Episode 26

Pretty good little review/comparison. I'd take the NC700 tbh.

I'll take your word for it. Two minutes into the video I ran out of wet wipes for cleaning up the excess testosterone dripping out of my iPhone. Anyway, I was worried with all that weenie-wagging somebody was going to dickslap my screen and I'd get an eye put out.

Crap like that makes me glad i don't live in America anymore, sad to say.

The theme isn't "We're going to compare three bikes for city usage" but "We're going to question each other's manhood and pretend that our preferred bike makes us some sort of dominant Alpha Male in urban traffic". Grow the eff up already. You're just another insignificant schlub tooling along through town and if you have to go through all this sort of hyperbole and self-delusion to make you think otherwise, that's pretty damned sad.

I agree with you about that Vid! Three 85 year old ladies testing the bikes, would have been a lot better

There aren't a whole lot of short videos I click out of, but two minutes was enough for me on that one.
