It looks like the average mpg (US) is 70.2 for the three bikes listed. Not bad at all!

NC700X, 120 MPH in the rain...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=...ture=endscreen

Sounds very relaxed @ 100 mph even in 5th. :-)

Shifting to 6th @ 100mph!
190kph = 120 mph.

Looks like it accelerates nicely from 80Mph to 110Mph+

Maybe I'm wrong but I think he's making him work for information that is already here in the thread.

all I have seen thus far is speculation. I take it there is no confirmed availability date in the US yet

Does anyone know if Honda has one of these in their booth at the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows? I am planning to attend the show in Daytona next week and was hoping to get an up-close view of it. I am also hoping they have a KTM 990 SM T that needs to be properly drooled on.

Yes. If you are there you definitely have to sit on it.

I hope so, I need to sit on one to see if my knee likes it or not. My local dealer suggested a 700 X would be in his shop in April but, I think he was trying to lure me into a deposit on an un-released bike, which isn't going to happen.

Just looked at the IMS website for information. The website link for Honda, who has been "On Tour Since 1982" says... See Honda in ALL CITIES

Except Daytona.



Wonder why?
