    MT, there is a fellow on here that took his riding boots to a Shoe-smith and had them add 1" to the sole which made a huge difference for him. just a thought :{)

    You all are definitely great at convincing. Just waiting to see how the 2020 model looks. If I should snap up a 2019 for a discount or if it would be worth it to buy the 2020? That will be seen once I see the 2020.

    We have no word yet on whether any changes are coming for 2020, or if there will even be a 2020 model. I don’t know how the market is in Canada, but in the USA, it’s not uncommon to find a new, never sold NC in dealer stock that’s several years old, for a significant discount.

    Or pick up a steal on a pre-owned. You have even less invested in case you aren’t happy with the bike - and you’ll likely save a load of money on some of the more popular modifications that are already done for you.


    Iím supposed to respect my elders, but itís getting harder and harder for me to find one now ..

    I got 1.25" lifts to put in my boots from Amazon. Helps a lot. I'm 6'1" but it's all neck. Inseam is just 30."

    When does Honda usually release the info on the following year's models?

    At least for the USA, Honda trickles out next year model information in bits and pieces throughout the latter half of the year. They tell what they want to, when they want to tell it. Some 2020s were announced last May. Some may not be announced until November. This web site: Honda-Pro Kevin | Motorcycles / ATVs / UTVs - News, Reviews, Pictures & Videos, Specs + More! seems to keep readers well informed for US models, or you can watch your Honda web site for when they make announcements.

    I am a fan of skill development. Investing in training and practice are fundamental to good riding in my opinion. Having a bike that fits your is a great foundation to start with.

    Honda already announced all of their discontinued models and it didn't include the NC, so for 2020 I expect either to simply be offered in another color, or some actual changes to be made to the bike. We'll probably just get another color. Ha. But I am curious too as to what 2020 holds for the NC too.

    Forty Two: Even though I am a guy, I am not strong (yep, I admit it). I am 5'10" with a 32" inseam and I can flat foot the bike with both feet in my street shoes (dont ride in street shoes though) with no heels. I am chicken wings for arms and my legs are match sticks with crooked knees (big gut though). I have no trouble backing the bike out of my garage (and I have a gravel driveway which is slight downhill and canted to the side from the garage). Low speeds maneuvers are a breeze....way back when I took the MSF basic course and hated the box, even on their little cruiser gz250...a year after I got the NC700x, I took and MSF experienced course and used the NC700x and the box was a breeze. You can ride the NC700x at 1 mph through parking lots, around obstacles, etc and it still feels balanced. I also have a Suzuki C50 Boulevard cruiser, which only has a 27" seat height and the NC700x is extremely more maneuverable than the C50...if you can find new old stock, you may get a killer price. Dont forget the NC700 (really a 670cc engine); even though the 750 has 75 more CCs, the 750 only has about 3 more HP and the 750 front trunk (frunk) is only 1 liter bigger. Rest is about the same (besides color-and the 750 has slots in the top of the frunk so adding a tank bag is easier-but who needs a tank bag when there are 21 liter frunk storage on the 700 and 22 liter frunk storage on the 750).
