2016 Honda NC750X first look

Restyled and upgraded for 2016

JUST as we told you, Honda will launch its facelifted NC750X at the Tokyo Motor Show next week, with a new look and a few technical tweaks.

The changes include LED lights front and rear, a 70mm taller screen, a new lightweight silencer, increased luggage space – up from 21 litres to 22 litres – and a reprogrammed DCT transmission with three ‘S-Mode’ levels.

For European and Japanese versions, the NC also gains revised suspension with ‘dual-bending valves’ in the forks to ‘optimise linear compression and decompression damping characteristics’ plus the addition of preload adjustment at the back.

The teaser picture of the NC750X was released alongside one of the 2016 CB500X, which has also been revised.
