2013 Honda NC 700 XD
Named one of Cycle World’s “10 Best Bikes for 2012” in its first year, the NC700X is an awesome commuter during the week. On the weekend it lets you go exploring in the country, or carve up a twisty canyon road.
Powerhouse Twin: The NC700X’s 670cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine produces tons of torque and enough power for easy two-up cruising. But it's thrifty, too — the standard transmission version gets an estimated 64 MPG.
Bike of the Year: This interesting, original, approachable and affordable machine takes us back to a time when those qualities helped Honda take the world by storm. What’s not to like about scooter-style storage and great gas mileage in an adventurous-looking package that goes and handles, if not like a sportbike, at least like a sporty bike?
Take It With You: In the real world, we need to carry more than just a cell phone and a credit card. That’s why the NC700X offers a 21-liter utility compartment, big enough to hold most full-face helmets. Safe, secure, and convenient, you’ll use it every time you ride.
Your Bike, Your Style: A wide array of accessories designed specifically for the NC700X is available to help you personalize your adventure and get what you want out of your new ride. Best of all, they feature the same quality and durability you’ve come to expect from Honda.
