I am waiting for the scooter version! I love the stupid burgman 400 I bought for my wife. Lol
The Aussies get..
Red or white NC700S Manual and ABS.
Price $9765 Ride away in South Oz. Bills Motorcycles.
As well as the Integra which has been around for a few months.
Because Honda has hurt you before and you're afraid to love again. Your parents don't understand what it's like when it's just the two of you together on the road. All they see is the roadside abuse, not the good times.
Dude Honda always got me home... thats why I like them
. Maybe they arent the sexiest, fastest or whatever but they
never let me down.
Graham, not sure if he is full of it or not but local sales rep mentioned that in Nov/Dec this year another model is supposed to be for sale that will fit in where the Transalp was. Wonder if that is the X model?
I thought it would shift a lot sooner for the sake of fuel economy. Did you have it in Sport mode perhaps, or is that just how it responds when you take off on full throttle? Have you noticed how the transmission behaves when ridden more gently?
Also, did you get a chance to try the manual mode - I'm curious whether it gives you proper, full control or is it one of those 'manual' modes that will shift up near the redline or down with low revs regardless of your selection...
I did the whole "whack-it-open" from the lights a bit actually! Have I mentioned it sounds great?
In normal "drive" mode, it takes off with a 300rpm or so less, and also shifts up 300rpm or so less too, but still just goes at the hit. "Sport" mode lets it rev out a bit higher, and uses more revs on launch. I only used the manual mode briefly, at downshifted 3 gears at once, it did it fine and quick, all I noticed was the revs climbed up with each gear while maintaining the same speed.
When not riding like a complete twat, it shifts smooth and almost imperceptably at about 3000rpm, and coasts along keeping the revs between 2500 and 3000 while accelerating normally, although still much faster than surrounding traffic.
Hope that helps.
that is the site and this what i am referring to under the 'Options and Pricing' page. The manual doesnt show an image.
Wait, it's not going to be gloss black with a giant Honda logo?
I'm at Americade. The NC is display only!!!!
Why would they bother listing the price if it's not gonna be available?
It's probably not that.
That sucks that they wont let you ride it.
They do this with the Gold Wing too - you have to bump up to the 3rd trim level to get ABS. But, it hasn't seemed to hurt sales. Go figure....
Well balls if this site isn't confuzzling me. :huh
See this, shows a Manual model (note the listed weight and no ABS or DCT options/info) and at the bottom in the same column, gives the colour. Or at least that's how I interpreted it. Dammit. Oh well,
What do they have to ride? Not cruisers. CBR250R? (already have 9,000 miles on mine). PCX scooter? VFR1200 with auto trans?
My dealer just called me on friday June 1st and told me my std base model NC700X would be in the dealership some time in June. I put down a $500 deposit in early April.
Time will tell. 650rider
VFR DCT AND NON-DCT, ST1300, Goldwings,CBR250R, Fury Interstate
The X is not a trans alp is it? Really. Is anyone going to believe that? It's a soft alp.
Honda importers in Australia said no X for OZ. I contacted them directly early in the year.
So I don't know. You may have to search the inter webs or grille him a bit more. Or ring up the importers.
Is it a DCT model, or do they have a manual model on display? If so, what color is it?
