The Honda web site has updated returning models for 2017. I'm glad to see the NC700X remain in the US line up of 2017 models but there is no more speculating if the 750 comes to the US at least for another year.

Fred can finally get his red one with silver wheels.

Beat me to it! I've been checking the web site almost daily.

For the USA, it looks like we'll just keep cycling through Honda's three primary colors - red, grey, and black. In the six model years so far, that's all it's been. Also, we still can't get ABS with a manual transmission.

In other 700 news, the CTX and NM4 continue as 2017 models.

In non 700 news, the CB500X lives on in, guess what, the color red. But also, Honda put the CB500 engine in a cruiser and called it a Rebel 500. :confused:

Still no NeoWing. :(

I was hoping the NeoWing was going to be a Goldwing replacement, from the pics I've seen there is next to no storage so I guess that's out the window...
My GL1500 just keeps ticking along, the 1800 doesn't really have enough changes to make me switch.

My understanding is the NeoWing is a sport bike with three wheels, not a touring bike, and in no way would it replace the Goldwing. The only thing in common looks to be the flat, opposed style engine configuration.

A verse from the Honda Bible: CH2:2
"By the seventh year Honda Powersports had finished the work they had been doing; so on the seventh year they rested from all their work."

amen.

It looks like the only difference between 2016 and 2017 is color.

Appears all of 2017 NC's will bleed Honda Red!

The Africa Twin DCT has two new colors. The Dakar (Red, White, and Black) remains, but (Red, White, and Blue) and Red added to DCT lineup. Red, White, and Blue added to manual colors, but no more silver in either transmissions.

I was hoping for the Neo-Wing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yea Ha!
So it looks like red is the only color option for 2017. Works for me.
I'll be calling my local dealer this week to get an order in and will red pin stripe the wheels to match my 'other' bike.
