DCT

An all-new 2020 NC750X DCT ABS Honda Adventure Motorcycle features Honda’s automatic Dual Clutch Transmission technology in its ninth year of assembly and is gradually gaining popularity. The DCT uses two clutches, one for startup and first, third and fifth gears while the second is for fourth and sixth gears. Its electro-hydraulic circuit indecently controls each clutch.

The DCT system contains two automatic models, including a manual mode for manual gear changes. The standard automatic DRIVE mode is mainly for highways and general riding and maximum efficiency. On the other hand, the SPORT mode holds a high rpm for up and downshifting offering three levels of performance.

Some riders prefer to ride in higher hears while others in lower that’s why the three mode options make it possible to modify the gearbox response to suit the riding style. The selected level is saved and acts as the default SPORT Mode for consequent rides, and it is also visible on the dashboard.

The DCT features Adaptive Clutch Capability Control that manages the amount of clutch torque transmitted. It adds a natural feathered clutch feel during opening or closing the throttle to ensure a smooth ride. Furthermore, it also includes the fast operation of the Neutral-Drive switch when turning on the ignition and a control system in Automatic mode for gauging the angle of ascent or descent and adapting the shift pattern accordingly. The new DCT rev ceiling for upshifts is at 7,500 rpm that makes full use of the engine’s peak power.

Design

It’s a fact that most of the bike-riding experience comes down to feel, and the new 2020 NC750X DCT ABS Honda Adventure Motorcycle was designed to be fun and convenient. From the front, the bike has a bold and adventurous identity, with an all-new LED headlight and running lights forming an exceptional impression.

The new tall windscreen escorts airflow around the rider’s upper body while the central duct equalizes pressure while splits on the upper left and right sides decrease wind noise. The new side cowls and side covers create muscular lines and the slender seat unit and new clear-smoke LED taillight is underlined minimally by the exhaust muffler that further enhances the mass-forward stance.

The storage compartment has a capacity of 22 liters that can easily store a full-size helmet, while its lid features external rails that are very useful for attaching a tank bag. Inside the lid, four hooks allow rubber straps to help in organizing content. An attractive instrument contains a negative LCD and information includes odometer, gear position, trip meter, fuel economy and consumption gauges, three-stage SPORT mode for DCT model and heated grip temperature.

The color of the new rev-counter bar display can be charged according to the rider’s preference; a total of excellent options are available. It is possible to have colors change according to gear selected, rpm range or riding mode. The ECO mode turns the display to light blue if riding with good fuel efficiency while green if riding even more economically. The SHIFT mode sees the color change to orange if the engine’s rpm exceeds a level pre-set by the rider.

Engine Features

The new 2020 NC750X DCT ABS Honda Adventure Motorcycle comes with a liquid-cooled, SOHC, 8-valve parallel-twin cylinder engine that ensures ultimate performance in the low-to-mid rpm range. The engine has a relatively long-stroke architecture and specially shaped combustion chambers that combine with the high-inertial-mass crankshaft to deliver enormous amounts of effortless torque from very low rpm. The forward-learning position of the engine lowers the center of gravity for optimum handling.

The new 2020 NC750X DCT ABS Honda Adventure Motorcycle has Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) available in two different levels. Level 1 allows some rear-wheel spin on gravel or dirt, for instance, while level 2 reduces wheel spin especially on slippery roads. Level-2 is the default from “ignition on,” while Level 1 can be changed with the push of the button present on the left side of the handlebar. Pushing and holding the switch can quickly turn the HSTC off.

The new twin balancers counteract vibration from the higher rpm inertia, refining the engine yet allowing the distinct throb delivered by the 270-degree firing order and bore to stroke is set at 80mm and 77mm. The engineers have lowered the engine’s overall weight by minimizing the number of parts, thus making the engine more efficient and reliable.

An all-new lightweight, pentagon-shaped muffler features two chambers joined by a hole-punched link pipe that works with a final resonator chamber to generate a deeply distinctive sound and exhaust pulse. The new built-in catalyzer has a two-layer structure that helps in reducing emissions.

Chassis Features

The new 2020 NC750X DCT ABS Honda Adventure Motorcycle features a rugged steel diamond frame that has the highest level of rigidity that is required for agile and responsive handling in a variety of conditions. It is also ideal for premium space since it takes up minimal volume but gives superb riding dynamics.

Moreover, the rake is set at 270-degree with a trail of 110mm while the wheelbase of 60.0 inches comes as standard with front to the rear weight distribution of 48% and 52%. The curb weight of the 2020 NC750X DCT ABS Honda Adventure Bike is just 474 pounds while the seat height of 32.7 inches makes sure that the rider can easily reach the ground. In addition, the riding position is upright and neutral with a high viewpoint. Another impressive advantage of the adventure-style riding position is great low-speed control combined with a low center of gravity and excellent steering lock. It results in exceptionally low-speed handling and outstanding balance.

The new 41mm telescopic Showa contains 6 inches of wheel travel, and single shock features a spring-preload adjuster system with 5.9 inches of travel. It works with a Pro-Link configuration that provides an optimized balance of an initial soft stroke for dealing with low-speed bumps together with outstanding control.

In the front section, the 320mm wave rotor and two-piston brake caliper provide plenty of easy-to-module stopping power complemented by the rear 240mm of wave rotor and single-piston caliper. The new DCT model comes with lightweight two-channel ABS that offers powerful and confident braking on slippery and wet road surfaces.
