    Would it "hold up"? Sure....same as any other street bike.
    Is it the best (or even in the top five ) tool for the job?

    Heck no.

    "Raise the bar"... Kinda ironic since that is why modular helmets don't pass the Snell....When Snell drops their 11 lbs of steel weights on the chin bar of a modular, the bar will deflect in response...

    I have to be honest, the new 2020 w/ 6+ gallon tank, electronic cruise control, TFT colored screen, DCT, spoke rims and tubeless tires makes me think of trading up. My NC only has 50,000 miles so...

    You have two options:

    1. Read the manual written by the engineers that designed the drivetrain

    2. Ask a bunch of random dudes on an Internet forum.

    Honda sells an accessory foot shifter for the NC700DCT, not sure about the NC750. I would put one of those on the bike and wire-tie a fake clutch cable to the handlebars.

    Problem solved ;-)

    The big difference between a C3 and a C3 Pro is the head shape each fits. Pro is for rounder heads, it doesn't mash your cheekbones or chin like the C3 Basic did (I've had both).
