    I owned a 2010 NT700V before I bought the NC700.
    It is a good middle weight full fairing shaft drive. The built in side cases have two lid sizes. The weak latches are high failure items. Shaft drive is reliable. Suspension barely adequate. Wind protection is very good. The windshield is adjustable by pulling it up or pushing it down into preset notches. I added a laminar lip to the stock windscreen with good results. Speed is about the same as the NC, but it only has 5 gears. The rear tire is hard to change. You can find them in excellent condition for $4000 to $5000. They are slow sellers. Here is a link to the forum for more information.

    I remember your presence on some of the ST1300 FLSTOC rides and you had no problem keeping up on the NT700V although I recall you commenting "it gets a bit out of breath at 100".

    [...The rear tire is hard to change...]

    I've had the rear wheel off my NT probably a dozen times, either to change tires or to try different things with the rear shock. As crazy as it sounds, I found that removing the right saddlebag and saddlebag lid was well worth the extra 20-minutes it took to remove these items. With those removed, you can actually SEE the complete rear wheel, brake caliper mount, etc. At first the guys on the NT sites (US & UK) probably thought I was totally freaking nuts but I've made more than a few converts to this method.

    My wife and I dd test ride an NT700V way back when.
    Since we hopped off a Yamaha 1300 Tour Deluxe it did feel a little weak at the time.
    Also, back then I was a cruiser guy sitting on a sport tourer.
    Now I am a Adv/Sport Tourer guy that forgot about the NT700V until this thread!
    Looking at them on Cycletrader makes me remember a little better.
    I really like the looks of the bike.
    Thanks to everyone for the points being made about the machine.

    God bless!!
