A ground-up, rolling experiment in innovation and economy, the 2013 Honda NC700X represented a major departure from trends in the motorcycle market, as well as a significant gamble on the part of Honda. With budget pricing (under $7,000 MSRP before options) nearly scooter-like storage, and very beginner-friendly ergonomics and torque, the NC700X is a bike geared at once towards new riders, metro enthusiasts, commuters, and former riders who just want something practical to occasionally revisit the love of the ride.
