2016 Honda NC750S, NC750X are now Euro4 compliant, also get other minor updates

The 2016 Honda NC750S is relaxed, gentle, commuter-friendly motorcycle that's ideal for beginners

Honda have updated the NC750S for 2016, with extensive tweaks to its parallel-twin engine to make it Euro4 compliant. The bike also gets a new LCD instrument panel, LED lighting, software updates to its automatic dual clutch transmission (DCT, with an M mode for manual clutchless gearshifts and S for automatic shifting) and a new exhaust system. The bike’s ‘fuel tank’ is actually a 21-litre storage compartment that can accommodate a full-face helmet, and this feature remains useful as ever.

The DCT used on the 2016 NC750S now features ‘Adaptive Clutch Capability Control,’ which manages the amount of clutch torque transmitted. This adds a natural ‘feathered’ clutch feel when opening or shutting off the throttle, for a smoother ride. Further refinements include faster operation of the N-D switch on turning on the ignition and a control system in AT mode for gauging the angle of ascent or descent, and adapting the shift pattern accordingly. Very smart and, indeed, very Honda.

The NC750S’s liquid-cooled, SOHC, 8-valve 745cc parallel-twin produces 54bhp and 68Nm of torque, and with Honda’s advanced PGM-FI system, is able to return 28.6kpl in terms of fuel efficiency. With its 14.1-litre underseat fuel tank, the bike has a range of 400km. Colour options for the 2016 Honda NC750S include black, white and red. There’s also two special edition options – a graphite black, with LED headlamp, additional red stripes, two-tone seat and red wheels, and a special edition matt gray metallic with LED headlamp, additional stripes, two-tone seat and silver frame.
