DCT on a Honda NC700SA
« on: July 14, 2012, 04:59:29 PM »
Honda have a 3 bike platform (integra, NC700S, NC700X) which uses the same 670 engine. The 'S' has come to my attention because it will be sold in Australia for Aus$8490. This platform use a dual clutch system similar to the DCT on the crosstourer.

I can help but be influenced by the low price. Everybody is raving about the system with the 1200 engine. Would twin clutches work well with the smaller engine?

I drove the integra and I must say it works like a charm

I rode the NC700X, NC700S and Integra (for a laugh) at a Honda open day and they were all fantastic with DCT. I think the DCT NC700S would be great for my wife - she has a CB600N at the moment. My son bought the NC700S with manual clutch due to it being €900 less.

I have a demo DCT 700 today and I'm well impressed.  I initially thought it wouldn't have enough power to function well but it's excellent. In fact I prefer it to the manual as im less inclined to lash it!

I had a few days in the Pyrenees on one of these with the latest DCT build standard.  Splendid bike, OK a little short on real oomph but relaxed, smooth and capable in the twisties.  Bonus of 80 mpg in brisk riding! (or 3.5 li/100km for the metricated).

I test rode an Integra because i couldn't find a CT demo bike with DCT and it was really comfortable and the DCT made such an impression on me that i vowed to track down a DCT CT demo ride before deciding to buy. I eventually found a tri-dealewrship group in Blackpool/Preston/Lancaster that had both versions on demo, i rode them back to back and ordered the DCT the same day.

Seems like more Honda dealerships are now having the DCT on demo but at the time they were scarce!!!
