Features

Comfort

  • LOW-PROFILE WINDSCREEN: The NC750X offers just the right amount of bodywork—enough to offer good wind protection, but not so much that the bike feels heavy or wide.
  • LOWER SEAT HEIGHT: For 2021, thanks in part to the new frame, we’ve been able to lower the NC750X’s seat height by more than an inch, making it even more rider friendly in traffic or in parking lots.
  • LIGHTER OVERALL WEIGHT: Light is right, and the new 2021 NC750X gets it righter than ever. That’s because it’s lighter than ever. We shaved over 11 pounds out of our previous model.
  • NEW COWL AND BODYWORK: Think the 2021 NC750X looks a little crisper? That’s because we sharpened up the bodywork. The new cowl offers better wind protection, and the sharper edged styling freshens up the bike’s look too.
  • EXTRA COMFORTABLE SEAT: On a bike like the NC750X, you'll probably want to extend your adventures and take some longer trips. That's why we gave it a seat with a shape that’s both supportive enough for cornering and comfortable even when the miles stack up.

Convenience

  • INTEGRATED STORAGE COMPARTMENT: The 2021 NC750X offers a larger 23-liter utility compartment that’s big enough to hold most dual-sport full-face helmets with a visor, and then some. Secure and convenient, you'll use it every time you ride.
  • UNDER-SEAT FUEL TANK: The 3.7-gallon under-seat fuel tank centralizes mass and enhances overall handling. Locating the tank and filler underneath the passenger seat allows for innovative centralized storage between the front of the seat and the handlebar.

Performance

  • 745cc PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE: With its cylinders tipped 62° forward for lower center of gravity, the NC750X's engine is a big step forward in modern powerplant design. The two-cylinder format produces tons of low- and mid-range torque, and the 270°-phase crank and uniaxial primary balancer make it smooth, too. And for 2021, we’ve boosted the NC750X’s horsepower, and bumped up the redline by 600 RPM!
  • NEW SLIPPER CLUTCH: On our manual-transmission NC750X, for 2021 we’ve added a new slipper clutch that helps eliminate wheel hop under downshifting, and which also lightens clutch-lever pull by 20 percent. Plus, we’ve given the transmission new gear ratios for first, second, and third, for more lively response on the road.
  • CAST ALUMINUM 17-INCH WHEELS: The 17-inch wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from and really help the NC750X offer responsive handling in turns. The cast wheels are light and strong, too.
  • ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION: Carbureted engines can be fussy when it comes to feeding them fuel. Not the NC750X. Electronic Fuel Injection means easy start-ups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
  • PRO-LINK® HMAS REAR SUSPENSION: Offering 5.9 inches of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the NC750X eats up the gnarliest pavement while giving you a smooth ride.
  • STEEL TRUSS FRAME: Light, strong and with just the right amount of stiffness, the NC750X's rigid and compact chassis is the foundation for precise handling. For 2021 the new frame is lighter, and contributes to an 11-pound reduction in the bike’s overall weight.

Technology

  • THROTTLE BY WIRE: New for 2021, the NC750X now features throttle-by-wire (TBW) technology. That also lets us give you four selectable engine power-delivery modes: Standard, Rain, Sport, and an additional user-customizable setting.
  • 41MM FORK: With 5.4 inches of travel, you get a perfect balance between a long-distance and a short-hop street machine. This gives it a wide range of capability, good handling and helps inspire confidence.
  • DISC BRAKES WITH COMBINED ABS: Single front and rear disc brakes give the NC750X great stopping power. Now standard on all NC750X models for 2021, you’ll get ABS brakes that are linked rear-to-front for added stopping power, even under challenging conditions.
  • LCD INSTRUMENT PANEL: Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge and two trip meters. Plus, the tach bar graph changes color according to fuel consumption, RPM, gear position and more. For 2021, the panel is larger and offers more features too.
