This jack of all trades is one of the most easy-to-ride bikes there is. With an engine based on that of the Honda Fit hatchback, power delivery is torque and the redline low. The payoff is easygoing performance and, at 64mpg, excellent fuel economy. The NC700X is surprisingly good off-road too, where that low center of gravity and ease-of-use make more expensive bikes look positively silly. Want to make life even easier for yourself? You can get the NC with Honda’s surprisingly good dual-clutch transmission (DCT) automatic gearbox. “Look Mom! One hand!”
