    The specs list the mpg at 80.8. If that is true, that would be amazing for a motorcycle of this size.

    Good for Honda to bring over the 750X. However I don't expect mpg to be any better than the outgoing NC700X. The WMTC figures are considered more relevant than EPA results.

    My Canadian '16 NC750x manages 66-70 mpg (US).

    Those are the larger Imperial gallons, which are 20% bigger.

    80.8 IMPG = 67.3 (us) MPG

    You have it backward I think.

    I Imp Gal = 1.2 US Gal

    That would be 97 mpg.

    Yes 80.8 Imp Gal = 97 US Gal, but, 80.8 MPG (Miles/Gallons) = 67 MPG (Miles/gallons)

    Gallons is in the denominator of the units.

    Explained another way, MPG is miles PER gallon. Since the imperial gallon is bigger, than the number of miles per imperial gallon is bigger.

    So......you're saying it gets more miles per smaller gallon?! I think not. Look at your equation. To convert mpg Imperial to mpg US, divide the 80.8 by 1.2.

    I got it, I got it. I kept focusing on gallon and not mpg.

    The important thing is the bike gets more fuel efficient{{ AND}} more HP.
    Best of both worlds.

    They spread out the gears even more to do this.

    The new model adds two-level Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), while mode changes to the automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) allow higher-rpm shift points. When it was originally introduced in 2012 as the NC700, the bike was noted for its crossover styling and innovative features. Now, updates result in a sportier character and a larger engine. The result is a fresh take on a highly functional machine that is more versatile than ever.
