We don’t know and we mean no offence, but it’s seems like every time we heard or have some teasing about an upcoming new Honda model, we are not exited, just curious, after all we are human being, so curiosity is a big part of us, let’s see what Honda is preparing for 2016.
After the updated 2016 Honda CBR500RR, now is the turn of the Honda “X” line-up to get the 2016 update treatment, which include: CB500X, NC750X, VFR800X Crossrunner and VFR1200X Crosstourer
Honda has released information about the upgrade, so let’s start with the Honda NC750X:
LED headlights and taillights, 70mm taller windscreen, three levels of S mode for the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), new Showa “dual-bending” valve front fork and pre-load adjustable rear shock
Increased helmet storage area (21 to 22 liters), situated where the fuel tank is on standard models
New compact lightweight muffler alongside with aesthetic upgrade.
The 2016 Honda CB500X will also get some aesthetic upgrade, 100mm taller windscreen, LED lights front and rear, Pre-load adjustable front suspension, adjustable brake lever and revised gear shift mechanism for improved gear change feel, the big VFR1200X Crosstourer also get some slight tweak:
It receive a new adjustable windscreen, Honda claim that it will be easily operated with one hand Three levels of S mode for the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), we really don’t like this kind of transmission (our humble opinion like always) Software upgrades that allow the machine to detect uphill and downhill slopes and adjust its shift pattern accordingly, the engine is now EURO4-compliant, new Special Edition color of Candy Prominence Red and Graphite Black.
Hope we covered all the upgrade and the new changes for the 2016 Honda “X” line up, no price tag was mentioned, if you want to learn more just wait the Tokyo motor show.
