The Honda NC750X Returns For 2020
The ever-popular Honda NC750X is back for 2020. Half commuter and half mid-sized adventure machine, the NC750X is a stress-free motorcycle with all-round appeal that toes the line between sensible daily runner and thrill-seeking tourer perfectly.
Powered by a bullet-proof 745cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine that produces just over 51 horsepower, it might not be the fastest bike in the paddock but what the NC750X lacks in top end performance it makes up for with practical low to mid-range torque.
Thanks to engine’s responsive and predictable nature, the NC750X makes for an excellent daily workhorse with more than enough grunt and character to provide miles of smiles when cruising the canyons. Wrapped in bold adventure-motorcycle styling, with long travel suspension and an upright riding position, the 2020 Honda NC750X truly is a versatile motorcycle that excels at whatever task you put in front of it, all an accessible and affordable price point.
For 2020, the Honda NC750X is available in a sleek Graphite Black that looks equally mean prowling the city streets as it does tearing up the twisties, with the grey and black details complimenting the dual nature of this fun loving motorcycle.

2020 Honda NC750X Features
Honda SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL (HSTC)
With Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) you can choose a level which allows some rear-wheel spin—on gravel or dirt for instance—or pick a second level which reduces wheel spin, particularly on slippery roads. It’s a great feature that helps make the NC750X even more versatile. (Available on DCT ABS model only.)
With 5.4 inches of travel, you get a perfect balance between a long-distance and a short-hop street machine. This gives it a wide range of capability, good handling and helps inspire confidence.
DISC BRAKES WITH AVAILABLE COMBINED ABS
Single front and rear disc brakes give the NC750X great stopping power. The DCT model comes with ABS brakes that are linked rear-to-front for added stopping power, even under challenging conditions.
LCD INSTRUMENT PANEL
Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge and two trip meters. Plus, the tach bar graph changes color according to fuel consumption, RPM, gear position and more.
INTEGRATED STORAGE COMPARTMENT
The NC750X offers a 22-liter utility compartment that’s big enough to hold most full-face helmets and then some. Safe, secure and convenient, you’ll use it every time you ride.
AUTOMATIC DUAL-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION (DCT)
Shift with the push of a button, or select the NC750X’s automatic mode and the bike will shift itself. Our Automatic DCT offers three riding modes as well, depending on the kind of performance you want. It’s been a huge hit on our other models, and once you ride an NC750X with DCT, you’ll see why.
UNDER-SEAT FUEL TANK
The 3.7-gallon under-seat fuel tank centralizes mass and enhances overall handling. Locating the tank and filler underneath the passenger seat allows for innovative centralized storage between the front of the seat and the handlebar.
745cc PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE
With its cylinders tipped 62° forward for lower center of gravity, the NC750X’s engine is a big step forward in modern powerplant design. The two-cylinder format produces tons of low- and mid-range torque, and the 270°-phase crank and uniaxial primary balancer make it smooth, too.
CAST ALUMINUM 17-INCH WHEELS
The 17-inch wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from and really help the NC750X offer responsive handling in turns. The cast wheels are light and strong, too.
ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION
Carbureted engines can be fussy when it comes to feeding them fuel. Not the NC750X. Electronic Fuel Injection means easy start-ups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
PRO-LINK® HMAS REAR SUSPENSION
Offering 5.9 inches of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the NC750X eats up the gnarliest pavement while giving you a smooth ride.
STEEL TRUSS FRAME
Light, strong and with just the right amount of stiffness, the NC750X’s rigid and compact chassis is the foundation for precise handling.
The NC750X offers just the right amount of bodywork—enough to offer good wind protection, but not so much that the bike feels heavy or wide.
MORE COMFORTABLE SEAT
On a bike like the NC750X, you’ll probably want to take some longer trips. That’s why we gave it a seat with a shape that’s both supportive enough for cornering and comfortable even when the miles stack up.
