I went from a 1990 PC800 to a 2012 NC700X and have enjoyed the change. The NC is about 100 lbs lighter than the PC, so its easier to push in and out of parking places and the PC was needing a new clutch when I traded it in. I also wanted a bike that I could take on unpaved roads and still ride on the Interstate if need be. (My favorite roads these days are old country two lane roads with a 45 or 50 mph speed limit.)
I do miss the PC’s shaft drive, but the plastic body panels that cover the NC do remind me of the old PC...
You may be able to find a used NC700 bike with a bunch of accessories for a decent price. But if you find a “Base” model there are “Loads” of accessories you can add to suit your own tastes. (It’s easy to spend 3 or 4 thousand $, to get your machine set. And it’s a fun project too.)
The NC700 is a different bike than the PC800, but it’s a fun ride and because it’s a Honda, so you know it will hold up.
Would I go back to a PC800? Don’t think so, but I did enjoy the 10 years of ownership.
