Honda unveiled at EICMA 2011 motorcycle naked not bad for technical content and aesthetic: it is the NC 700 S, a model with which the house in Tokyo seems to wink at those who, while strictly performing around town, do not want to give up pleasure of riding a real motorcycle.
The starting point of the new two-wheel maxi scooters is the new Integra: the two vehicles share the same engine (a 4-stroke parallel twin that has a single camshaft, liquid cooling and electronic fuel injection and is coupled to the second generation of the automatic gearbox Dual Clutch Transmission), although the final result in this case is very different and very particular taste motorcycle.
From the point of view of the chassis, the chassis is a dual-beam tubes of circular cross section which, in the area of the tube, and has support braces The suspension is very classic (41 mm telescopic fork up front, monoshock with Pro-link to the rear), which however does not compromise functionality at all.
The braking system consists of two disks, one in front and behind, respectively diameters of 320 mm and 240 mm ABS and combined braking system then completes the whole by increasing the overall safety level of the new two-wheeled is able to offer.
Of note is the fact that the tank moved under the seat for which it was possible to obtain a room in which easily accommodate a full face helmet, making the bike truly singular and almost unique.
Finally the look: the lines of the new Honda CN 700 S are very simple and almost classic, making the bike simple and elegant, perhaps missing only a touch of originality but for the rest of it, even on an aesthetic level, a two wheels worthy of the fame of its builder.
