Hi Avarria, I also got lucky and was able to take possession of a 22 NC750X that came in to my local Honda dealer early! So far I love this motorcycle, it is just too mucn fun and can't beat the MPG. One note on the stock seat. I was out on a ride yesterday and as I threw my leg over the seat, I think a part of my boot brushed the gas tank flip lid. I didn't think much of it until I looked and saw I had cause a small rip in the material. The seat coating is very thin and almost looks like vinyl. Based on that experience, I will be looking for an aftermarket seat as well. I guess the stock seat was a cost-cutting measure by Honda.I, by some miracle, stopped by a local Honda Powersports dealership near me and they had a 2022 Honda NC750X DCT on order that was supposed to arrive this month. I put in my deposit. I gave up ever finding this motorcycle and was about to buy a Kawasaki Versys X-300. Talk about lucky! I had called all over East TN trying to find this thing.
I did have a few questions, though.
What tires would be best for light off-road use? I live in the middle of the woods and have to traverse gravel and dirt. My old scooter I learned on last year (first bike - 2013 Yamaha Zuma 125) had 70/30 Road/Off-Road tires. They struggled a bit sometimes, but then again, 12-inch tires aren't known for their off-road ability. I think the 2022 NC750X comes with Metzeler Tourance NEXT tires and I am not sure if they meet my needs. 90% of my time is on the paved road, but that 10% off-road can be trying.
Are aftermarket low seats worth looking into? I know Seat Concepts makes one. I can almost flat-foot the bike with my motorcycle boots on (sat on a non-DCT last year).
I ordered a set of SW-Motech crash bars. Any other recommendations for aftermarket items? The crash bars from Honda didn't look very protective.
