    Well done Lexanez, you wake up 5am just to explain a clearer picture.

    Thanks. Yeah, woke up early to get some gaming time before I had to go off to give tuition later, looks like I won't be having too much gaming time now!

    very well done Lexanez but u miss out kawasaki er-6n, btw is the direct competitor.
    after all the illustrations by Lexanez, up to then nobody to ask questions about the nc700 negatives.
    am tech geek like all, interest in new tech but will ask simple questions.
    no sale for me.
    well done Lexanez again.
    u painted a very clear pictures for us, thank u for all ur effort.

    additional note:
    just in case, for those whom does not know the difference between torque n hp.
    take for example, diesel n petrol engines.
    if u carry a heavy load, torque is needed.
    just like lorry can carry heavy loads n doesnt have to move fast.
    whereas a passenger car does not need so much torques n move around swiftly fast with four passengers.
    a bike doesnt needs a lot of torques, we need lots of hp, a stallion.
    tat why hp sells n not torque, a stallion vs a work horse.

    Torque and hp go hand in hand. In general, the greater the hp, the greater the torque. What determines top speed is max hp. How it gets there is dependent on the torque curve.

    Torque affects acceleration, or drivability. Max hp has little to do with it.

    A lorry has loads of torque, and loads of hp.

    Using one number, max hp, to screen bikes ignores many factors that determines a good ride.

    I read a US forum regarding NC & they are not in favour with the bike. They mentioned about low HP etc....

    After months & tested the bike, they started to accept now...

    I have been reading NC forum from the world since Feb 2012 & I would say is not a bad bike after all.

    At the moment, there are more after market accessories for NCX than NCS.

    For those who are interested should be able to find out performance outcome after Aug 2012.

    here the two direct competitors of p-twin, honda nc700sa vs kawasaki er-6n.

    honda nc700sa, 670cc p-twin engine:
    Max. Power Output 35 kW/6,250min-1 (95/1/EC)
    Max. Torque 60Nm/4,750min-1 (95/1/EC)

    kawasaki er-6n, 649cc p-twin engine:
    Maximum Power‡ 53 kW {72.1 PS} / 8,500 rpm
    Maximum Torque‡ 64 N.m {6.5 kgf.m} / 7,000 rpm

    which will u be grin ear2ear when riding any one of these??
    i dun know from my exp, i favor kawa.

    Honest point of view from me, I will choose Honda.

    I don't mind lower power because I hardly speed, I had good experience with Honda bikes but not Kawa. I used to ride ZX4 & ZX7 years back, engine is rather rough & repair cost is high.

    I rode a few Honda bikes years back too but yet to encounter any breakdown other than wears & tears.

    Just my 02 cents.

    from my exp, try not to buy 1st gen bike cos many things have not tested n trial out thoroughly.
    those whom bought first gen bike r their testers n second gen will have improve parts.
    always get the second or maybe if there r third gen becos bike manufacturers turn out new models every 2 or 3 yrs.
    hayabusa is one good example of reliability cos it has been production for many yrs with minor changes.

    Agreed with you & you might be right.

    I own a first batch Honda CB400 Ver S which not a single a bike on the road at that time, the bike is still with me now & for the past 16 years it yet give me any big issue.

    Luck can be the factor too.

    Hope the first batch NC will not have any issue too.

    I reckon I should know something about physics.

    You're correct, in that power is energy/time. Horsepower is just a unit of measurement. The number quoted in bikes refers to the max power over the rev band, typically close to the red line. For a given load (bike+rider), this number describes the maximum amount of energy/time available to overcome the forces against the moving bike (air resistance, friction etc). It is easy to relate that more power=more resistance overcomed, ergo greater top speed, for the same bike+rider.

    Here's a suggestion. Have some understanding of a subject before posting. It is fine to ask questions when one is clueless. It is another to believe one isn't.

    i just read an article from down under Australia, feature cfmoto 650nk 70hp motorcycle similar to kawa er-6n.
    bike cost about au$6k (aprox s$8k), made in china by chunfeng co.
    sold mostly to their most demanding customers, aust farmers.
    of course quality unlike japan but s$8k tats less than half price of kawa/honda.

    Many standard bikes of middle class of 600cc and V-twin or parallel twin can get 110mph which is about 176km per hr. depending on wind condition and age of bike and technology, it is no surprise 190km/hr. my previous deauville was getting 120kmhr effortlessly.

    The NC700X (670cc Parallel Twin) comes in 3 models. Base, C-ABS and C-ABS cum DCT.

    Aside from that, the NC700 series includes the NC700X, NC700S, Integra.

    The NC700S and NC700X comes in the 3 models stated above but only the NC700X C-ABS cum DCT model has higher power which is 38.1 kW @ 6,250rpm and 62Nm of torque @ 4,750rpm, the rest is at 35kW @ 6,250rpm and 60Nm of torque @ 4,750rpm.

    The Integra, like the NC700X DCT is also at 38.1kW @ 6,250rpm and 62Nm of torque @ 4,750rpm.

    Now let's compare these paper figures to NT700V, CBF600 (One of the most popular 600cc around in Europe and other countries) and the bike which you mentioned, FZ600 S2. Oh, let's throw in the GSR600 for comparison too!

    The NT700V have 48.3 kW (65 hp) @ 8,000 rpm and 66.2 Nm (48.8 lb·ft) @ 6,500 rpm
    (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Deauville)

    The CBF600 have 57 kW @ 10500 rpm and 59 Nm @ 8000 rpm
    (Source: http://www.motorera.com/honda/h0600/cbf600.htm)

    The FZ600 S2 have 72 kW (98 PS) (97HP) @ 12,000 rpm and 63.1 Nm (46.5 lbf·ft) @ 10,000 rpm
    (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_FZ6)

    The GSR600 have 68 kW (90 bhp) @ 12,000 rpm and 59.7 Nm (44.1 lb.ft) @ 9,750 rpm
    (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_GSR600)

    One thing to take note though, between different engine types such as In-line 4, V-twin and P-twin, you can't really compare how is it like as it is pretty unfair to look at just purely horsepower figures. Remember, these engines aren't the detuned version of In-line 4s but entirely different engines altogether.

    Inline 4
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inline-four_engine

    V-twin
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-twin_engine

    Parallel twin
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel-twin_engine

    Now as you can see, the various figures above have shown that it is pretty clear that the NC700 series have the greatest torque of 62Nm at a low rpm of 4,750rpm but however, the lowest power at a modest 38.1kW.

    This means that the NC700 series are tuned for low end torque and designed like a car due to its low rpm, maxed out at 6,500rpm but it will run out of rpm before 200km/h, it has only a top speed of 197km/h as shown in a video.

    What the power rating does, just means that all of the bikes above are gonna beat the NC700 in a flat out, straight road long distance race. However, the NC700 will shine in start/stop riding and city rides as its admirable torque at low rpm will allow it to zip around easily.

    Detuning a bike is not a bad thing, really. As in the case of NC700, what Honda did was to significantly increase the low-end response of the bike for usage in real-time riding as most bikers could't really hit above 120km/h in cities and crowded highways, allowing the rider to reach his destination at the shortest time possible.

    Now, lets look at fuel economy of the above bikes based on Manufacturers' specifications

    The NC700 series gets bout 64MPG (27.2km/l)
    (Source: http://powersports.honda.com/2012/nc...fications.aspx)

    The NT700V Deauville gets about 49MPG (20.8km/l)
    (Source: http://powersports.honda.com/2011/nt...fications.aspx)

    The CBF600 gets 45.9mpg (19.5km/l) (Apologies if I took the liberty to convert UK MPG to US MPG)
    (Source: http://www.doble.co.uk/theBikes/newB...bikeRefNo=1324)

    The Yamaha FZ600 S2 yields 43MPG (18.2km/l)
    (Source: http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/pr...9/0/specs.aspx)

    The GSR 600 obtain bout 42MPG (17.9km/l)
    (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_GSR600)

    Given the above fuel consumption, the NC700 yields the best among the above. This would again apply onto real world concept as given current gas prices, it would make your gas consumption as low as possible.

    Now, with the above characteristics, the NC700 fits the bill of being a commuter. The torque and low gas consumption would make it appealing to the everyday city rider with the tendency of an occasional tour, is it not what most people are? This bike was never designed to go track or go incredible distance within a short period of time or serious dirt biking, for that purposes, you have other specifically tailored bikes.

    One more thing though, the numbers that you quoted for the VFR1200F and VFR1200FD confuses me. Honda South Africa have stated that these 2 bikes have the same power and torque.

    MCN, however quoted different figures. All MPG figures are in UK MPG which is higher than US MPG. I lol'ed at the one for VFR1200F and VFR1200F DCT

    I used this to convert the different MPG values.

    Well, now onto popularity of these bikes.

    The NT700V have received good reception across Europe and is a pretty popular bike. These 2 articles would prove it. Well, the NV700 is just the US naming of the NT700V.

    These 2 bikes are old bikes which cease production in 1991 and 1998 respectively so they are old bikes. However, both have their own cult following as a simple Google search will yield forums dedicated to these 2 bikes. Information below.

    The NC700X (670cc Parallel Twin) comes in 3 models. Base, C-ABS and C-ABS cum DCT.

    Aside from that, the NC700 series includes the NC700X, NC700S, Integra.

    The NC700S and NC700X comes in the 3 models stated above but only the NC700X C-ABS cum DCT model has higher power which is 38.1 kW @ 6,250rpm and 62Nm of torque @ 4,750rpm, the rest is at 35kW @ 6,250rpm and 60Nm of torque @ 4,750rpm.

    The Integra, like the NC700X DCT is also at 38.1kW @ 6,250rpm and 62Nm of torque @ 4,750rpm.

    Now let's compare these paper figures to NT700V, CBF600 (One of the most popular 600cc around in Europe and other countries) and the bike which you mentioned, FZ600 S2. Oh, let's throw in the GSR600 for comparison too!

    The NT700V have 48.3 kW (65 hp) @ 8,000 rpm and 66.2 Nm (48.8 lb·ft) @ 6,500 rpm
    (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Deauville)

    The CBF600 have 57 kW @ 10500 rpm and 59 Nm @ 8000 rpm
    (Source: http://www.motorera.com/honda/h0600/cbf600.htm)

    The FZ600 S2 have 72 kW (98 PS) (97HP) @ 12,000 rpm and 63.1 Nm (46.5 lbf·ft) @ 10,000 rpm
    (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_FZ6)

    The GSR600 have 68 kW (90 bhp) @ 12,000 rpm and 59.7 Nm (44.1 lb.ft) @ 9,750 rpm
    (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_GSR600)

    One thing to take note though, between different engine types such as In-line 4, V-twin and P-twin, you can't really compare how is it like as it is pretty unfair to look at just purely horsepower figures. Remember, these engines aren't the detuned version of In-line 4s but entirely different engines altogether.

    Inline 4
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inline-four_engine

    V-twin
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-twin_engine

    Parallel twin
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel-twin_engine

    Now as you can see, the various figures above have shown that it is pretty clear that the NC700 series have the greatest torque of 62Nm at a low rpm of 4,750rpm but however, the lowest power at a modest 38.1kW.

    This means that the NC700 series are tuned for low end torque and designed like a car due to its low rpm, maxed out at 6,500rpm but it will run out of rpm before 200km/h, it has only a top speed of 197km/h as shown in a video.

    What the power rating does, just means that all of the bikes above are gonna beat the NC700 in a flat out, straight road long distance race. However, the NC700 will shine in start/stop riding and city rides as its admirable torque at low rpm will allow it to zip around easily.

    Detuning a bike is not a bad thing, really. As in the case of NC700, what Honda did was to significantly increase the low-end response of the bike for usage in real-time riding as most bikers could't really hit above 120km/h in cities and crowded highways, allowing the rider to reach his destination at the shortest time possible.

    Now, lets look at fuel economy of the above bikes based on Manufacturers' specifications

    The NC700 series gets bout 64MPG (27.2km/l)
    (Source: http://powersports.honda.com/2012/nc...fications.aspx)

    The NT700V Deauville gets about 49MPG (20.8km/l)
    (Source: http://powersports.honda.com/2011/nt...fications.aspx)

    The CBF600 gets 45.9mpg (19.5km/l) (Apologies if I took the liberty to convert UK MPG to US MPG)
    (Source: http://www.doble.co.uk/theBikes/newB...bikeRefNo=1324)

    The Yamaha FZ600 S2 yields 43MPG (18.2km/l)
    (Source: http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/pr...9/0/specs.aspx)

    The GSR 600 obtain bout 42MPG (17.9km/l)
    (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_GSR600)

    Given the above fuel consumption, the NC700 yields the best among the above. This would again apply onto real world concept as given current gas prices, it would make your gas consumption as low as possible.

    Now, with the above characteristics, the NC700 fits the bill of being a commuter. The torque and low gas consumption would make it appealing to the everyday city rider with the tendency of an occasional tour, is it not what most people are? This bike was never designed to go track or go incredible distance within a short period of time or serious dirt biking, for that purposes, you have other specifically tailored bikes.

    One more thing though, the numbers that you quoted for the VFR1200F and VFR1200FD confuses me. Honda South Africa have stated that these 2 bikes have the same power and torque.

    As seen here, under the 'Engine' heading.

    read from the nc700 owners forum, some are unable to reach excess of 170km/hr, perhaps have to redline at every gear inorder to hit 190km/hr?

    anyway i'm too old for those kind of speeds, sometimes can't even find my balls...

    Luck can be the factor too.

    Hope the first batch NC will not have any issue too.
    just don't get a lemon.. heard horror stories on lemon bikes and cars. those owners must be thinking why get new vehicles in the first place.

    Would like to check whether any of the NC700S riders here are ex-super four riders?
    Quite keen on NC700S but would like to check whether how does it compare to the super four riding experience.
    I am riding a super four revo now and i know it's not a "apple to apple" comparison.
    Hope to have some inputs from owners here on the following.

    1) Pick up compared to superfour (though i know the torque stats on paper but i just wish to know the diff, comment on with vtec and without vtec)
    2) riding posture (superfour abit leaning forwards, i prefer more upright which puts lesser pressure on wrist.)
    3) front compartment (thinking of not installing top box but hope to squeeze 1 M size open helmet, taichi drymaster X raincoat, bike cover, parking coupons and poncho for pillion)
    4) how much is 2nd party insurance & road tax.
    5) Overseas websites mentioned CBS (Combined ABS) is standard. Is it true?
    6) brakes stopping power (NC700S only 1 big front brake disc,revo has 2 front brake disc, i think alot super four riders know about the poor stock front brakes)
    7) bike made in jap?
    8) Instruction manual - English or Jap?


    Hope to hear inputs from owners.
    Thankyou in advance.

    hi i owned a Super4 spec two before.. and rode a spec3 and revo dat is being used for work purposes.

    riding the NC700s now.. previosu bike a fazer, spark, x1r, x1, super4 , black bird, KRR,

    1) Pick up compared to superfour (though i know the torque stats on paper but i just wish to know the diff, comment on with vtec and without vtec)

    ans: pick up wise. due to the torque and low rev RPM. u cant drag the bike like super 4 can. have to change when reach certain low rpm. for super4 its vtec kick in at certain rpm and u can feel it by the sound of the pipe and engine. the NC700s with the twist of the throttle u can feel that its going faster but without any vtech sound.

    2) riding posture (superfour abit leaning forwards, i prefer more upright which puts lesser pressure on wrist.)

    ans: the nc700s is definitely more upwright i must say when comparing with super4... im only 163cm..


    3) front compartment (thinking of not installing top box but hope to squeeze 1 M size open helmet, taichi drymaster X raincoat, bike cover, parking coupons and poncho for pillion)

    ans: when u squeeze 1 MEdium helmet be it a full face or not.. u can actually store a lil more item like a thin rain coat.. ur wallet coupon and poncho.. bt for a RS taichi drymater and a bike cover i think it wont fit togehter with a helmet. heres wad i normally store: helmet raincoat, wallet, coupon, passport bank book.. thumbdrive. portable battery for S3, manual book, and honda tool kit.. imagine how much more i can put in if i dont put my helmet. so the qns for storage still lies if u need extra storage and top box for more storage..

    4) how much is 2nd party insurance & road tax.

    im 25 using ntuc 2nd party cost $1k and road tax for 6 mth is $87.

    5) Overseas websites mentioned CBS (Combined ABS) is standard. Is it true?

    i think for the S model, it comes only with a standards ABS, while the X it has ABS and non abs with additional $1k pricing for ABS.

    6) brakes stopping power (NC700S only 1 big front brake disc,revo has 2 front brake disc, i think alot super four riders know about the poor stock front brakes)

    i tested the abs for my NC700s, and it prevent from whel lock.. it helps a lot if u go NSHW. bt in singapore road seldom uses the ABS. other than that u might be surprised on how strong the braking for the front wheel.. from my experinced i think super4 rear brake is the worst..

    7) bike made in jap?

    yeps bike made in japan.

    8) Instruction manual - English or Jap?

    instruction is in english..

    One more thing about braking power, even it has only 1 front disc brake, it has almost the same stopping power as the KTM RC8.

    A test done by 'BIKE' magazine have stated that the NC700X only took 50.5m to come to a complete stop from 70mph which is about 112km/h.

    A video about the storage space for the NC700X, users have reported that the NC700S have a slightly larger compartment.

    I'm a Tutor! Proud to be one!

    Thank you Newblood & Lexanez for your prompt reply. It gave me a better understanding of the bike. I'm still finalising some thoughts before i decide to purchase the bike. May i also know if there is any "helmet hook" to hook my helmet when parking at sheltered carparks. If no then how do you guys manage? Bring along with you everywhere u go? Sorry to ask such a noob question as i'm just too used to having a bike box for close to 10 years and i would want to consider not putting a bike box for this bike in event i'm getting.

    theres actually a hook to for you to use tp attched to the helmet and then to the bike.. theres a catch below the pillion seat for u to attached the hook and the helmet together..

    the hook comes along with the standard toolkit..

    neverthe less.. top box is coming in really soon from givi and hepco..

    accessories is slowly coming in .. not to worry..

    btw i attached my helmet and stick the strap below the pillion seat without using the hook.. its how u gona secure it,,

    Default Review on NC700X

    Will this bike overheat when caught in jams like the one @ checkpoint?Can the under-power be resolve by remapping or dyno-tuned?I am worry about this before i made a deposit for this bike.Your advise is important to me.Thank you!

    I heard the NC700X first shipment is snap up within 2 weeks! Next shipment will be here in August but Boon Siew will not bring in the DCT model,much exp$,i heard and DCT difficult to repair,like DSG.....So i book my RED NCX (ABS) without the DCT.Loois can bring in the DCT model but who knows how to repair if anything fails? So better stick to Boon Siew bikes,safer lah.

    Yes, manual gear can jump start easily.

    Well, either way, push start isn't going to happen very often and most people would't like it anyway. So rather than asking about push start, it would be better to ask about battery and starter motor maintenance, especially the carbon brushes.

    Shop selling bikes which cost 10 over grand, they are not selling kopi. Customer will tend to view it or test it before decide. I myself took my own sweet time to buy the NC. After I bought , there are still few bikes in the showroom. The only downside is the colour you want might not have.
    Above is just my point of view.

    Hi all,

    I have another set of questions for NC700S riders.

    1) Has anyone riding a NC700S mounted a Givi engine guard or seen any pictures with that? Was searching around the net and couldn't find any pictures. All of them with the Givi Engine guard are all the 700X, none are 700S.

    2) not sure if any one put full set of Sliders. Do let me know where you got it from and post some pictures if possible. I actually still thinking whether to put givi engine guard or sliders instead.

    2) Anyone already installed honda orginal panniers only / honda orginal top box only / or either one which is of other brands? Do share if got pics. i hope to see how it looks like before deciding whether to install cos i still feel without box for 700S is nicer. I did send enquiry to boon siew but they have yet to reply.

    I have already booked that 700S, but shipment delayed till sometime end july (mentioned by bike shop). Now waiting impatiently for the bike to arrive.

    Actually it a standard procedure between Distributors and Dealers. The Distributors need the Dealers' network to help them sell and handle the customers. So Distributors will usually sell at the predetermined MSRP so the customers will go their Dealers for a discounted price instead. And no point you appoint the Dealers and yet you want to fight business with them. Sooner or later the Dealers will also give up on this dealership.

    But one thing interesting. At least for Boon Siew, they don't marked up the price if you intend to full cash unlike the dealers. But of course you need to do your maths to see if it is overall cheaper.

    Any comments on whether this bike is comparable to the Kawasaki Versys?

    Both parallel twins but the Versys seems to be more 'adventure' style and comes with abs standard. But at 22k otr i want to know if that 5k or so difference really gives me a different bike from the NC700. And in all honesty looking at the Versys makes me want to ride it but the honda seems kinda tame and boring.

    It is time for motocycles to move into car's technologys, volkswagen are using twin clutch gear boxes long ago, and BMW and mercs are producing high torque diesel engines for their lines.

    One thing that attract me to the NC range is that they actually got a 'boot'! no need to a box and spoil the look.
