The downhill behavior was something I disliked about the earlier DCT. I’m glad they got that sorted out.
forgot. there was also the following new feature
"DCT even senses whether the bike is travelling uphill or downhill and selects shifting points and engine braking accordingly. Adaptive Clutch Capability
Control assists in on/off throttle situations, reducing pitching motions for smoother riding."
I have been up and down some steep hills and the bike works as they say above in the quote. In traffic bike is smooth at slow speeds. Adaptive clutch is working.
Bike is smooth and calm in traffic, no bucking or abrupt on off power delivery.

Congrats! Looks beautiful. Safe riding !!
Hi Whiteknuckle. The 2017 didnít have the LED lights, or the traction control. Just wondering, why have you kept getting new 750ís?
Whiteknuckle, one word on the windscreen: Madstad. I had the same problems as you with the stock windscreen: totally useless. I tried a larger Givi screen, and added an extension. Still useless. The Madstad screen is great. It has totally changed my riding experience for the better. Itís not completely quiet, but itís night and day different. Now I can ride pleasantly without earplugs, and with my visor open. Itís not cheap, but itís worth the money.
as to why i keep getting new 750s? Guess i just am addicted to the fumes from new bikes? :-)
Got the NC750S and i did like it. but the rev limiter started to bug me.
Got the 2016 NC750X because it was the first year that DCT was available in Canada. In hindsight i should have kept that one.
Got the latest one because of the new features that i expected to be on the 2016. only disappointment was the no Showa forks.
I had the FZ07 and Smax scooter. decided to downsize to one bike. The savings on insurance and maintenance will pay for the NC over a few years.
I do not mind wind, The NC does have better wind protection than the naked FZ07. The only thing about the NC that is driving me crazy is the roar sounding turbulence.
The weird thing is, it is only in my right ear. I tried moving the mirrors around to different positions. I tried leaning way over on the left side of bike to see if the turbulence
would go away. But nothing fixed it. Only thing that helped a bit was sitting way back on the seat.
i got some self sticking closed cell foam, removed the ear pieces from the Shoei GT-Air and stuck a couple of pieces of foam in the ear wells. Will test that later today. I also
have an older Shoei RF1100 i will try to see if it is the helmet. Do not think so tho as the GT-Air was fine on the FZ07. Sure hope the Madstad fixes this. Kind of limits my use
of the NC if i have to avoid long highway speeds and only going 100kph.
the disconcerting thing about Madstad is the silence from the company. They took my money fast enough. But 2 emails have gone unanswered for 5 days now. They do not answer the phone
and do not return calls. I ordered the light smoke screen but saw that that plastic is on back order. So asked to change to clear but have heard nothing. I have read about Madstad customer
service being excellent but so far i do not see it.
