What can I say about the NC700X after putting it through the paces for several hundred miles (and even some dirt)? It is a pretty decent little bike.
It hung with an RS1200 for the weekend and took me everywhere I needed to be. It got me 69 mpgs. It has power when you need it. It isn’t great offload, but neither am I. All in all I really like it and I think it might do for Alaska (but I really want a Honda Africa).
