Honda NC750X (2014 onwards)

Riding the NC750X for any length of time reveals a bike that handles sweetly, brakes more than adequately, is comfortable, tackles scabby back roads well and, with the addition of the DCT gearbox, is easy to ride and super economical in terms of fuel use.

The 2020 Honda NC750X comes with a few new colours, making the selection include red, blue, black and white.

Although in the adventure category, the NC750X is what Honda calls their “ultimate commuting motorcycle” with a tough adventure look.

When it comes to A2 friendliness, the bike produces 40.3 kW of raw power. However, Honda can restrict this to 35 kW to make it an A2 bike. If you’re buying the NC750X second hand, you will have to restrict the bike yourself (or get a mechanic/workshop to do this for you), by about 14%, using a restrictor kit which you can buy online.

There is a lot to like here from the NC750X, and the fact that the Honda NC750X fits into the A2 licence category is fantastic news for anyone looking for a comfortable, economical and easy-to-ride A2 “adventure” motorbike.

Just who doesn’t love that NC750X storage compartment?!?
