Honda’s all-purpose motorcycle has been revised for 2022. This adventure model’s strong torque, high-quality suspension, and outstanding ride comfort make it ideal for exploring backroads and venturing off the main path.
The all-new NC750X is powered by a liquid-cooled, SOHC eight-valve parallel twin-cylinder engine delivering 58 horsepower and 51 pound-feet of peak torque. The punchy 742cc engine excels in the low to midrange. Its comparatively long stroke architecture and particularly formed combustion chamber, together with the high-inertial-mass crankshaft, provide a tremendous amount of torque at low revolutions per minute. The parallel twin is coupled to a six-speed transmission and fitted with a slipper clutch that reduces lever load and regulates rear-wheel lock-up during the manual transmission’s rapid downshifts.
NC750X’s appearance is more aggressive, with thin fairings and a muscular tank accented by LED headlight and running lights. The slim side panels, side coverings, and narrow seat all contribute to the bike’s light weight appearance. Daily commutes are made more convenient by the 23 liters of storage at the front. The exterior portion of the lid features rails for mounting a tank bag, while the interior portion features four hooks for attaching rubber straps to assist with luggage organization. Additionally, there is a spot designated for an additional USB-C socket.
The all-new NC750X features a tubular-steel diamond frame with a 48/52 front/rear weight distribution and a 472 pound curb weight. The seat is 31.5 inches high, and the riding position is upright and neutral, with a high perspective. At the front, a Showa 41 mm fork with 4.7 inches of travel and a Dual Bending Valve design optimizes compression and rebound damping for increased ride quality and comfort. The rear shock has a spring preload adjuster, 4.7 inches of wheel travel, and a Pro-Link configuration. Front brakes include a 320 mm disc and a two-piston caliper, while the rear brakes feature a 240 mm disc and a single-piston caliper. The lightweight two-channel ABS system enables confident braking on slippery or wet road situations. The 17 x 3.50-inch and 17 x 4.50-inch cast aluminum wheels are wrapped in 120/70 ZR17 and 160/60 ZR17 tires, respectively.
The NC750X is available with an optional DCT transmission that enables quick and seamless gear changes. The rider can also select Manual mode with the DCT gearbox, changing gears using paddle-style triggers on the left handlebar.
In terms of technology, the NC750X comes standard with Honda Selectable Torque Control on both manual and DCT models. There are four riding modes available: Sport, Rain, Standard, and user-customizable. The left-hand switchgear and the LCD display are used to select the mode.
The 2022 Honda NC750X is offered in Grand Prix Red color scheme.
