The Honda NC750S is a 745 cc variant of the NC700 motorcycles’ family produced by Honda since 2012 which is available in Europe, Australia and Canada. It differs from the other NC700 motorcycles also for its slightly larger 77 mm cylinder bore producing 40.3 kilowatts (54.0 hp). The Honda NC750S is an exceptionally user-friendly motorcycle: easy to ride and easy on the pocket in terms of both initial purchase and running costs. It attracts riders of all ages including both experienced riders looking for a capable and economic motorcycle to tackle the city traffic, as well as new, younger riders stepping up from smaller machines looking equally for performance, economy, practicality and pleasure from their first ‘big’ motorcycle.
Its parallel twin-cylinder engine packs the low-to-midrange with effortless torque; capacious storage space where the fuel tank normally sits and the option of Honda’s unique Dual Clutch Transmission set it apart from the crowd of mid-sized naked machines. When combined with a compact form, confidence-inspiring chassis and exceptional fuel economy, the result is a uniquely accessible and practical motorcycle.
A host of detail improvements went into the upgrade of the NC750S for 2016. The LED headlight (on the Special Edition colours) and taillight added premium style. New instruments – with variable colour display – were also added, which can be personalised and present a premium image to the rider.
The Honda Africa Twin is a dual-sport motorcycle made by Honda in two versions, first from 1996 to 2003 as the 750 cc (46 cu in) V-twin XRV750T, then from 2016 as the 1,000 cc (61 cu in) parallel-twin CRF1000L.
The CRF1000L is a 998 cc (60.9 cu in) parallel-twin dual-sport that revived the Africa Twin name for the 2016 model year. It became available in the UK in late 2015 and early 2016 in the US. It was developed as a modern interpretation of its predecessors, the XRV 750 and XRV 650, based on the NXR-750 which won the Paris-Dakar rally four times in the late 1980s. The original V-twin Africa Twin was first sold in Europe from 1988 to the final production year of 2003 but was never brought to the United States.
The XRV750 Africa Twin was a 742 cc (45.3 cu in) dual-sport based on the Honda NXR-750, which won the Paris-Dakar rally four times in the late 1980s. The engine was a 742 cc, 6-valve, four spark plug, liquid-cooled V-twin. The long-travel suspension insulates the rider from uneven surfaces. The brakes are twin discs at the front and single disc at the rear.
The Honda Forza (meaning strength and forcefulness in Italian) is a maxi-scooter lineage made by Honda, originally with the Honda Forza 300 model. In 2015 Forza 125 complements the existing 300cc version. The aim, Honda modestly claims, is to ‘be the very best a 125cc scooter can be’.
Honda Forza makes its debut for 2014 as Honda’s first maxi scooter introduced to North America in over a decade. While both the scooter and nameplate are new, from 2001 to 2007 the first generation of the Forza (NSS250) was sold in the USA and Canada under the Reflex name. Despite the shared lineage, this new Forza has little in common with the Reflex of old. The third generation Forza is an entirely new and superior machine from the frame to the high tech motor.
The Honda CB1000R is a naked bike manufactured by the Honda Motor Company. It was unveiled at the Milan Bike Show on 6 November, 2007 as a replacement for the Honda CB900F Hornet (known in the US as the Honda 919). Styling cues are borrowed from the 2007 CB600F Hornet. The engine is a detuned version of the 2007 CBR1000RR engine and produces around 125 bhp (93 kW).
