Without adhering to prevailing ideas and categories, the NC700X pursues the essence of riding and cutting-edge design, broadening rider and passenger satisfaction by evolving new possibilities for creating new value and finding new ways to meet the fundamental needs of customers ("anytime, anywhere, easy, fun, and safe").
This new design fits the lifestyle of riders brimming with intellectual curiosity who want to seek out and experience an as yet unknown joy. Honda took this into account when evolving the NC700X development concept and decided on the following design keywords: "Smart" "Tough" and "Body."
By focusing on the above, Honda was able to come up with a design that fused proportions of a hitherto unknown beauty with an everyday practicality and ease of use.
This Crossover Concept Design is one direction Honda has gone in to meet the challenge of creating a new market in response to customer needs that are becoming increasingly diverse.
In its full-fledged pursuit of ease of manoeuvring to allow riders a full range of use with peace of mind on narrow roads or when parking, Honda arrived at a riding position and body size that enables riders to briskly get about town.
This machine is for people who are seeking to expand possibilities in their hobby and leisure activities, to broaden their horizons through physical action and experience. The design of the NS700X imparts a sophisticated, urbane style to the power to stir up a spirit of adventure.
With this machine, Honda set itself the target of designing a motorcycle that can play a proactive role in every life scene imaginable. It has as its starting point Honda's desire to broaden the enjoyment factor for its riders.
