2013 Honda NC700X – Big Splash In The Adventure Touring Motorcycle Pool

“The 2013 Honda NC700X is unlike any other motorcycle on the market today, not only in terms of style but in features as well.”

The 2013 NC700X from Honda is making big waves as it enters the adventure touring motorcycle arena. They’ve been flying out the door as fast as we can get them out of the crates here at Dillon Brothers Motorsports. With the economy still on the skids and fuel prices looming ever higher Honda has introduced a whole new type of motorcycle to keep up with the changing times. The 2013 Honda NC700X is unlike any other motorcycle on the market today, not only in terms of style but in features as well.

Whether you call it an adventure tourer,  a sport tourer, a motard or even a street tracker or dual sport, the 2013 NC700X is proving hard pigeon hole into just one category. Featuring a brand new 670cc liquid cooled parallel twin engine a 6 speed transmission, the new NC700X gets a staggering 64 mpg and a starting price of only $6999 which makes it just as easy on the wallet as it is on the eyes. If you want to spend a little more you can even get it with a Dual Clutch Transmission with 3 modes: two automatic settings, sporty S and standard D, as well as MT – which allows riders to shift manually via switchgear buttons.

Probably one of the coolest features of the NC700X in my opinion is the 21 liter “trunk” storage area area where the fuel tank traditionally resides which is big enough for a full face helmet.  Honda accomplished this by installing the generous 3.7 gallon fuel tank under the seat.  Additional touring friendly accessories will be offered including 45-liter top case and 29-liter saddlebags as well as crash guards, LED fog lights, heated grips, 12V DC socket and a center stand.

Of course the NC700X isn’t the only contender if the newly emerging adventure touring class of motorcycles, just the latest and perhaps the most unique. Here at Dillon Brothers Motorsports we carry a large selection of Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha and Triumph motorcycles, both new and used. I am also including KTM in the list to broaden the discussion. Triumph has been lurking around in adventure riding world for a few years.  First with the Tiger 800 and it’s bigger brother Tiger 1050 and then with the newly released 2012 Tiger Explorer featuring a new 1215cc powerhouse of an engine.  Other recent entries into the adventure touring field are the Yamaha Super Ténéré, the Suzuki V-Strom which is available in a 1000 and a 650 version and the Kawasaki Versys. KTM is also coming on strong with their 990 Adventure and 990 Supermoto models.

There is also plenty of more traditional dual sport motorcycles on the market today as well if that’s more your style. It seems that todays dual sports come in all sizes and styles from 200s up to 650s and from basically dirt bikes with turn signals to motorcycles that look just as at ease on the streets as on the trails. Kawasaki offers 2 models, the KLR 650 and the KLX 250S. Suzuki has their DR650SE and the DR-Z400S. Honda had only one true dual sport in their 2012 lineup, the XR650L and it looks like for 2013 they have replaced it with a CRF250L. Yamaha carries 3 models, all smaller in size, including the TW200, WR250 and the XT250. KTM has two street legal dual sports, the 350 EXC-F and the larger 500EXC.
