Honda NC700X (2012 - 2013)

The Honda NC700X is a super-versatile motorcycle that is a combination of a standard commuter and an adventure-touring bike. It comes with a 670cc parallel twin engine that can be found in some other Honda bikes such as the Integra 700. The engine is reliable, but not that powerful at higher speeds. It can sometimes feel like driving a diesel car instead of a motorcycle, which can be a bummer for some experienced riders.

Where the Honda NC700X shines though, is its practicality. It is equipped with a large storage area that can used for storing a full-face helmet. Other than that, you will also get Honda’s Combined Anti-Lock braking system (C-ABS) and a mid-sized screen as standard with this bike.

A2 Licence Compliance

The Honda NC700X is a 670cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 38 kW (51 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 7.89% to become A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the Honda NC700X on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the Honda NC700X.
