Engine & Drivetrain
The NC750X’s liquid-cooled, inline-twin engine incorporates numerous advanced and patented technologies. To ensure strong acceleration, ease-of-use in the city and a relaxed character on the highway, the engine delivers exceptionally strong low-rpm performance. The engine’s unique design creates a muscular, easy-to-use powerband not unlike that of a big-bore cruiser. 2017 European model shown.
To give the engine a satisfying and distinctive sound and feel, engineers thought way outside the box. An extra balancer shaft was added to inject the engine with just the right amount of “good” vibration. The effect of the twin balancers is to counteract vibration from higher rpm inertia, making the engine feel more refined, yet still with the distinct “throb” delivered by its 270-degree firing order. The intake-port layout inside the cylinder head was carefully designed to create an intentional interference between adjacent ports, which results in subtle combustion variations. In addition, the timing for the opening and closing of the intake valves was set differently for each cylinder. The result of all this? An engine that always lets you know what it’s doing and has a pleasant sound and feel. 2017 European model shown.
The six-speed manual transmission complements the powerband by using wide gear ratios—no need to be constantly shifting up and down to maintain strong performance. 2017 European model shown.
Chassis & Suspension
Although lightweight, the diamond-shaped steel-tube frame was carefully designed to be very sturdy while also allowing just enough flex to respond smoothly to changing road surfaces. This results in a smooth ride while also letting you feel what the bike is doing. You get comfort when you’re just cruising, and a sporty, fun ride when you’re on your favourite twisty backroad. 2017 European model shown.
Like the engine, the chassis is all about creating a ride that’s fun and user-friendly. The seating position is comfortably upright and relaxed, and the chassis geometry allows the NC750X to manoeuvre nimbly through the city or on winding cottage roads. 2017 European model shown.
Seat height is 830 mm and the riding position is upright and neutral, with a high viewpoint for enhanced hazard perception. Another advantage of this adventure-style riding position is great low-speed control—combined with the low centre of gravity and generous steering lock, the result is exceptional low-speed handling and balance. 2017 European model shown.
The NC750X shows off its edgy styling with an agressive front cowl design, LED taillight, and a tall protective windscreen with venting to reduce pressure and turbulence. The result is a bike that’s is comfortable when cruising at speed, with the windscreen and bodywork diverting wind around the rider to minimize fatigue. 2017 European model shown.
The 14.1-litre fuel tank is accessed beneath the seat at the rear of the bike, with the fuel stored beneath the rider. The tail cowl has been cut short to bring the mass forward, and handy grips have been integrated into the tail section for passenger security. 2017 European model shown.
