2010 Honda NT700V ABS, 2010 Honda® NT700V ABS From TopSpeed.com ... Honda brought their all-new NT700V touring motorcycle to the United States in fall of 2009. Having gained popularity and selling pretty well in Europe for years, Honda’s mid-sized V-Twin is claimed to be a versatile, user-friendly and fuel efficient motorcycle that allows riders to use it both to commute and live adventures on depending on what day of the week it is. Behind all the touring fun and excitement sits a consecrated (on the old continent) liquid-cooled 52-degree V-Twin displacing 680cc as a result of an 81mm bore and 66mm stroke as well as 10:1 compression ratio. Each cylinder’s four valves are controlled through a single overhead cam, while gas is fed into the engine by Honda’s programmed fuel injection system. The engine is coupled to a five-speed tranny, which should keep things lively and interesting at all times while also maintaining good mileage. Knowing about the standard model’s 566 lbs curb weight (571 on the ABS model) and the gas tank’s 5.2 gallons capacity, we reckon the NT700V should beg for more gas after around 200 miles during long haul traveling and approximately 165 miles around town. If our predictions are right, this qualifies the bike as a great alternative for those who have long been waiting to join the big league, but don’t feel like spending too much money on big touring bikes, which aren’t that helpful around town either ... and, being a versatile mid-range touring motorcycle, the Honda NT700V comes with large-capacity saddlebags and five-position adjustable windscreen so that it will suit riders of different heights. Also, the decent accessories list includes a 45-litre top box in matching body colors, just to start your interest.
