At the EICMA in Milan recently, Honda announced the latest model to join their lineup in Europe. The NC700S (sport standard) and the NC700X (adventure style).

The Canadian models will come with manual, 6 speed transmission and will arrive on showroom floors in the summer of 2012.

An all new 670 cc parallel twin engine with the cylinders canted forward about 62 degrees. It has a 270 degree crank that Honda says will give you a v-twin feel and offers low rpm torque.

The two models share a common chassis. Fuel tank is 14.1 litres and is accessed below the rider’s seat giving the rider a low centre of gravity. In the place of the traditional fuel tank space is a cargo space large enough to store a helmet or pack a laptop and other essential business stools for your daily commute.

The official launch will take place in December at the Toronto Motorcycle Show and we will bring you all the details as they come available.
