We wanted to see if the gap between big-bore scooters and motorcycles was insurmountable. Because these bikes are mostly directed at less experienced riders, we decided to bring a re-entry rider into the testing mix.
Joe Magro is a rider who has spent a few years off of motorcycles and is interested in getting back on two wheels.
Once you’ve started the engines and set the drive mode (on the Mana and NC700X), getting all three bikes underway is as simple as rolling on the throttle and allowing the electronics to handle all the particulars.
How quickly the bikes launch is in direct proportion to how hard we cranked on the throttle.
Since Honda has positioned the NC as a fuel-efficient motorcycle (a fact borne out by its 59.7 mpg), this choice makes sense.
Switching to Sport mode does get the transmission to hold a lower gear longer, but it never allows the rpm to climb to the point of excessive vibration.
The manual transmission is well on its slide into obsolescence within the automotive world.
The first installment of the two-film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows follows Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) as they search for the pieces of Voldemort's (Ralph Fiennes) soul that he extracted from his being and hid in obscure locations both far and wide.So, we asked him to dust off his motorcycle riding endorsement, put on some borrowed riding gear, and join us in riding these bikes on urban streets, rural highways and interstates.To be honest, only the CVT-equipped bikes are shift-free.Switching to Touring mode eliminated the vibration, but the result was, as Troy put it, ”a neutering effect on the engine.” So, he opted to use Sport mode around town, while I elected to enjoy the smoother ride offered in Touring mode.The choice of power modes also affected the NC700X, in a similar though slightly different way.
Without a manually operated clutch to manipulate, both will likely charm new riders or re-entry riders with their terrific ease of use.
