MCN is in Athens, Greece for the launch of the updated NC700 range and will today be riding the NC750X and the scooter version, the Integra.

The full test of both bikes will be in a forthcoming issue of MCN.

The three-bike range – NC750X, NC750S and Integra – all now get a larger 745cc version of its parallel-twin engine for 2014 plus a new version of the twin-clutch DCT gearbox which has revised software.

Honda is aiming the NC750 at more experienced riders compared to its CB500 family. It also claims the 750 has more character thanks to a louder exhaust note and the extra torque from the larger engine.
