honda nc700x ride - no thanks
just got back from having a test ride on one of these new honda nc700x . got a letter from my local honda dealer saying come and take one out so why not ... i went with an open mind and soon made my mind up ...its horrible .. it weighs in at 218kg and only has 47bhp ..and it shows open the throttle and nothing happens your sat waiting for it to go , then at 6k revs the rev limiter kicks in ...honda say its got lots of low down power ..where ?.. i couldnt find it ...on the plus side honda claim it will do 78mpg going steady, it handled well and the brakes were good , but thats it ? .it is by far ..thee dullest motorcycle i have ever rode .. sorry honda putting half a jazz car engine in a bike dosent work .. i came home and patted the seat of my new wee thinking what a good choice i made ..
