    I have a Desert Fox fuel bladder. It is available when I need it. But I made it a good bit of the way across Canada without ever having to fill the fuel bladder with fuel.

    Saw pictures today of one sitting in a OH (??) dealership waiting on the owner to ride it home. The owner took and posted the pictures.

    There were a couple on showroom floors in ads on CT.

    See a bunch at dealers on Cycle Trader, mine arrived last week (in Hawaii) and finally out of the box on Wednesday so I checked it out and told the general manager I’ll pick it up on Saturday.

    Interesting to see some with the “old” MSRP OF $8,999 and some with the “new” MSRP of $9,299. Got mine at the old price but take the hit on the dealer fees since they’re aren’t many dealers out here.

    You've a lot of season in Hawai, I'm in MI and middle of July is about half through our riding season. That said, AFAIK, there's not a new NC750 sitting in MI!
    Is your bike titled as a 2021 ore 22?

    VIN decoder says it’s a 2021.

    Yup, you’re right I can afford the wait since I can ride year round.

    A question for the collective--

    I own a 2018 Honda NC750X DCT.

    I weigh about 250 pounds with gear on.

    I also have a nine gallon fuel cell on top of the passenger seat and a Givi Monokey 40L top box and a couple of small waterproof roll top bags with tools stuffed between the tank and top case.

    Additionally I have the Russian crash bars and a Madstad screen and a Russel Day Long seat.

    Sooooo.....I have a heavily loaded bike.

    I have a stock suspension.

    I think it rides and handles like a dream.

    I have owned an RC51 with a full Ohlins R&T Fork and Ohlins remote reservoir shock, and still own a Ducati Monster with full Ohlins suspension.

    I put a Cogent shock on my old GSX1250FA and an aftermarket shock on my old V-Strom back in the day.

    My question is, "ls anybody else out there happy with their suspension, like I am?"

    On so many forums I see people complain about their suspension, especially on the NC700, do you folks think the improvements Honda made on the US market 750's from '15-'20 have "fixed" all the complaints?


    I am very impressed by this bike.

    Just curious.

    Thanks.

    I have a 2016 750x dct , weigh 200lbs and am also very happy with the stock set up. Based on what the bike was designed for and costs, I think it is pretty brilliant out of the box.

    Agreed.

    The bike is not built to the best spec but is built for purpose and to a budget. They may have cut some costs on some things, eliminated some features, but the bike is actually an amazing out of the box bike that performs most tasks very well, and generally without pushing it to its limits.
