It’s a jungle out there. City traffic, gravel backroads, construction zones, inclement weather... Is there a bike that can not only tackle all this, but actually make it fun? You bet there is: the all-new Honda NC700XA. What makes the NC700XA so practical for taming the jungle – including its huge storage area where the gas tank would be on most bikes – are also the things that make it such a joy to ride, on the street, highway, gravel road, you name it. The strong low-end and midrange torque from the 670 cc twin-cylinder engine allow you navigate through the city without having to constantly shift gears, and these same characteristics produce the strong acceleration that feels so satisfying when you’re pulling away from a stop sign or pulling out onto the highway. Even the sensible, upright riding position that gives you such a great view of the road and traffic ahead in the city, adds to the NC700XA’s pleasure by feeling so relaxed and comfortable on the open road.With its long-travel suspension, extra ground clearance, standard Combined Braking System with ABS, protective windshield, and optional Honda Genuine Accessories luggage, the NC700XA can also take you far from the city and into the real jungle – or at least into the out-of-the-way place.
The NC700X crossover offers the long-travel suspension, agility and commanding riding position of an off-road bike in an overall package with high standards of stability, braking and engine performance. It promises a fun, engaging riding experience together with the practicality and ease of use that make it a machine eminently suitable for daily commuting.
A. Sintered: "sintered metal" technology is the most widely used for OEM pads. It is relatively insensitive to temperature variations and rain. Comprised of a mixture of powders (copper, bronze, ceramic, nickel), the material is compressed then heated to a high temperature (900°C) to adhere to its substrate. Sintered brake pads last longer and generally speaking handle the heat of heavy braking better and have become a standard on 99% of Motorcycles and ATVs from the OE manufacturers.
Organic: Kevlar, carbon and ceramic fibers are bound by resins. This technique is older and cheaper to implement, but less efficient at high speeds. EBC Organic pads have attracted many enthusiasts because of the way they work. They are inherently “Softer” then sintered pads, easier on rotors and have a brake “feel” preferred by many riders. These pads generally do not last as long as a sintered pad, especially in rain and other wet conditions and are mainly used on scooters.
Q. My fork seals leaked fork oil down and onto my brake pads, what can I use to clean them?
A. Never try and clean brake pads that have been contaminated with grease, fluids or oils. These fluids will soak into the pad material and cannot be removed. These pads should be replaced!
Q. After having my new pads installed, is there any kind of break in procedure needed?
A. Pads need a minimum of 250 miles regular street use (not highway cruising) where brakes are used frequently to allow pads to mate with worn (or new) rotors. During this time brake performance WILL BE LESS EFFECTIVE especially if brake rotors are scored or distorted. Ride carefully in low traffic areas at lower speeds during bed in period until 90% contact area has been achieved between pads and rotors. Allow extra stopping distance until brakes are fully bedded.
