    2014 Honda NC 700 X-DCT ABS…w/Lots of Add-Ons...$4250

    I AM REDUCING THE PRICE ..$4250 ( Although I find it hard to believe how much value this wonderful bike has lost in such a short period of time...I have right at $10,000 invested)

    I purchased this bike in July of 2014…from my local dealer in Rock Hill,SC…I am in my 70’s now and being a life-long guitar player had started to experience pain from the Arthritus in my hands…Working the clutch lever in traffic on my BMW f800 ST had become a problem…So I decided to give the Automatic Dual Clutch Transmission a try…It turned to be the best move I had made in quite a while…I fell in love with everything about this bike…I could ride for hours again without the pain in my hands…I averaged over 75 mpg since it was new…( I take it pretty easy these days, thus the high gas mileage.)

    This bike allows you to either ride fully automatic, with standard and sport modes, or you can paddle shift for a manual transmission feel without having to use a clutch, which, when in the mountains on switchbacks, is as much fun as I have ever had while riding up there…I have run “Ethanol-Free” pure gas ever since it was new, with the only exception being while riding in areas like the Blue Ridge Parkway, it is hard to find ethanol free gas up that way… I would say 90% of the miles are with the ethanol free fuel…I have run Mobil 1 full synthetic 10w40 motorcycle specific oil with K&N 204 oil filter throughout its entire life…

    Why I am selling ?
    When I purchased the bike I was 68 and weighed in around 185#… Now at 72, I have thinned down about 30-35 lbs along with quite a bit of muscle loss, with the bike weighing in and 535#, before adding the side cases and other add on’s, and coupled with the fact that I ride excluvisely by myself between 3am and 6am when the roads around Charlotte are mostly empty of distracted drivers, I have become concerned that I will not be able to pick it up if it tips over somewhere out there…

    Here is a list of the add-on’s and what I paid for them:

    -Givi Trekker Outback side cases $900
    -Givi Trekker side frames to mount cases 250
    -Givi windshield 140
    -Givi engine guards 200
    -Russell seat (the most comfortable seat “EVER” ) 400
    -Honda centerstand 150
    -CRG lanesplitter hindsight mirror’s ( Great Mirror’s) 150
    -Givi handlebar mount GPS holder w/case 85

    This bike is in pristine condition with absolutely no issues what-so-ever…It has been properly cared for…Come have a look, you will not be disappointed…

    $4250 includes everything…Please contact me through this thread, email or call me. Thanks...Rick 803-412-1075

    I appreciate your comments about drivers in Charlotte. I was driving there for the first time in the beginning of June. Very fast and not very careful. Good luck with your sale.

    Would you sell the Givi 1111fz top rack and top plate separately?

    At the age of 64 I find myself thinking about what bike I should get after my beloved NC gets too heavy for me. I'm intentionally down about 30 pounds from this time last year. I've had muscle loss from the lack of upper body exercise because of hand surgery last February, still can't do push ups. Are you hanging up your keys for good or moving on to a smaller bike? Good luck with the sale.

    Hey kpinvt...I have already purchased a Kawasaki KLE 300 Versys-x....Got it just over two months ago and have about 3500 miles so far...#385 is much more in my comfort zone these day's...Have averaged between 72 and 75 mpg so about the same as the NC 700...I ONLY run non-ethanol fuel, either 87 or 89 octane...

    I Really loved that NC 700 as well but the weight got to be too much for me...I have been downsizing for quite a while now...I'm not sure what I will be riding when (IF) I reach 85 but it will have two wheels...I still love to ride Rick

    That KLE is a great looking bike, one which I will remember as a possible future replacement for the NC. A KLE just went by on the road outside my office window. Good luck with the new ride.
