    New to Honda NC 750x DCT (plan to trade my Aprilia Mana)

    I am currently riding a 2010 Aprilia Mana and plan to trade it in for a 2019 NC 750X DCT.

    I enjoyed my Aprilia, but with the lack of dealership support in the Toronto area it's time for it to go.

    Looking to join a group of like-minded NC 750X DCT owners.

    I will have lots of questions. Saddle bags, lowering kit, centre stand, top case...etc.

    But for now, I am just introducing myself.

    Michael

    If you want to lower it, have you considered the CTX700? It's the same basic bike, but somewhat lower (and with different styling etc)

    the mana seat height is pretty high, you might not need a lowering kit. try it first and wait for the suspension to settle, you might find that you dont need it

    If you lower it you will need the shorter side and main stands for the S models.

    Welcome Michael and Robert - regarding the lowering links, I also felt I might need to do that as I found it necessary on my Versys, but this bike has a much lower center of gravity and feels so much lighter that I felt very confident with the stock height, even with just the balls of my feet touching down. Try it for a while to see what you think, you may be good to go.

    Fun facts - I'm 5'7", 30 inch inseam. My 2015 Versys (awesome bike, had to sell it, needed a dct) had a 33 inch seat height, I think my 2018 NC is 32.7". They weigh about the same but you'd swear the NC is 100 lbs lighter.
