NT1100 vs NC750X. Keep or Trade?Jul 12, 2023
I'm getting a lot of interesting feedback on my recent nt 1100 or africa twin video, particularly in relation to my own
nc750x. Some say I might even regret switching from the nc 750x to the nt-1100, so today I thought I would do a little. Comparison to see how different or similar the two bikes may be. I'm very curious about the riding position, wind protection and ergonomics. I'll also look at weight and luggage distribution and how the handling dynamics of each bike might compare if this sounds like something you might be interested in. you coming right now let's start by looking at both bikes from the front, on the left is the nt-1100 and on the right is my 2020 model nc 750x.
I'm using that model because it's the one I have and the one I have. I would be updating if you are considering the new 2021 nc 750x model, this video is still a good reference as proportionally they are very similar, although the new 2021 model will sit a little lower due to its reduced suspension height, the first thing that catches the eye attention. obvious is the difference in the overall width of the bikes, the new nt 1100 is much wider, which is surprising when you consider that it is not much heavier than the nc 750x 2020, the manual nt 1100 weighs 238 kilograms with fuel packed and ready to drive.
My nc 750x manual weighs 220 kilograms ready to ride, in the case of the nt 1100, that's only 18 kilograms more for a motorcycle that is larger and has a much larger engine, but the comparative weight figures don't tell the whole story. history. More on that later, looking at the bodywork and screens, we can see that there will be a lot more protection from the elements on the nt 1100 with a wider Touring screen and additional wind deflectors, although in terms of screen height There is not much difference between the models. two bikes the nt 1100 screen can be adjusted in five directions in height and angle the nc 750x screen is not adjustable at all seeing them in such a similar position in height i really hope the nt 1100 screen can be adjusted high enough to provide a good protection to someone My size, six feet, another factor to consider here is the seat height.
If the nt-1100 seat sits lower on the frame than my nc 750x, that will improve the effectiveness of the nt-1100. We'll compare the saddlebag-equipped seats of the nt in a moment. -1100 seems almost twice as wide as the nc 750x. Also noticeably wider are the handlebars and we can also see that they sit a little higher on the nc 750x again, suggesting that the
nt1100rider will have a little more weight on their wrists rather than sitting upright, which Personally , I don't care at this moment. I really want to see the nt 1100 screen at its highest position.
I hope we can see you soon. We have compared the weight. Now let's compare horsepower and torque. The NT-1100 produces 100 horsepower. 7500 rpm and the 2020 nc 750x produces 54 horsepower at 6250 rpm, which is almost double the power for the nt 1100 without much more weight. I find the current power level of the nc 750x to be quite satisfactory, so I hope to feel a Here's a real difference: let's check the torque of 77 lb-ft at 6250 rpm versus 51 lb-ft at 4750 rpm. That's interesting, it's only one and a half times more powerful for the nt-1100 as far as torque and the nc 750x.
Peak torque is 1500 rpm earlier in the rev range and it is 18 kilograms lighter, although I will feel a difference in torque, the greater power difference tells me that I will notice the acceleration of the nt-1100 more at higher speeds , this will be very useful for passing cars. On the highway and NT-1100, much more power should also make traveling with two people easier. Now let's overlay the nt-1100 and
nc750xto compare the rider triangles from the start, we can see how similar the bikes profiles are, they are very close in overall proportions, especially from the side, I actually only had one idea: I wondering if we're not getting the new nc750x here because honda australia knew the nt 1100 was on the way looking at them overlapping like this it seems like the two models have very similar intentions why buy a new nc750x when you can have an
nt1100especially when you consider the Distances Australians tend to travel?
The seat heights are very interesting to look at, the nt-1100 is just a little lower in the seat and the screen heights have a fairly uniform geometry. In terms of wheelbase, the nt-1100 is a little shorter, but they are both very similar when it comes to turning and changing direction. The nt-1100 should feel very similar to the nc750a, although I think it might not react as quickly due to the different gravity sensors, let's see now that the nc750x has a very clever way of disguising its true weight by positioning the motor towards down and move the fuel tank to its position under the seat.
The nc 750x carries its weight much lower and, as such. feels lighter when lifting it off the stand, it will be a different situation for the nt 1100, however, you can see that the nt-1100 parallel twin engine is more upright in the frame and above that, higher still is the fuel tank. fuel and in the case of the nt 1100 that fuel load weighs 15 kilograms superimposing the location of the nc 750x and the engine, we see how much lower that mass is transported. I'm predicting that the nt 1100 will feel noticeably heavier when lifting off the stand than the nc 750x and this may even translate into a slightly top-heavy feel when maneuvering and driving at low speeds.
Something else to
keepin mind is the location of the footrests. The footrests are a little lower relative to the seat on the nt 1100 and noticeably further forward than on the nc 750x. This should provide a more relaxed posture on board the nt 1100, again indicating its touring intentions. The next item I want to consider is luggage capacity, if equipped with panniers. It's clear that the nt1100 will certainly have more available storage space, but the big question for me is whether the nt1100 will have more available storage space. The saddlebags accept a full size helmet. This is a huge benefit of the nc 750x's luggage system and something I would definitely miss.
The saddlebags look very thin from the front view which is great for downtown riding and at first I thought there was no way they could be. We have helmets there but the picture tells a different story when you see them from the back they suddenly look quite deep and I think there is a 50% chance a full face helmet will fit. We are waiting to see the nt-1100. It will be on display in a few weeks at the upcoming ikema fair in Milan, which opens to the press on November 23, so I'm hoping to see a lot of great videos coming from there.
I won't be going sadly, but I hope to see quite a few reports. I'm coming off the show and will be eagerly awaiting all the news, especially from the nt 1100, now that I've pretty much covered the key areas of interest to me. What is my conclusion should I upgrade or stick with the nc 750x like others suggest? Well, if I could have more than one bike, I would definitely stick with the nc 750x as my daily touring commuter bike and I would also buy a cruiser if my wife is looking, that's all. I promise I would only have three bikes, but I'm not in a position to do that yet, so for me it's just one bike at a time, but which bike would I like to have more protection from the weather in winter, a quieter helmet on the road, more seat comfort, better passenger accommodations, a bit more luxury and I'm really interested to see what it's like to live with a DCT gearbox so at the moment I'm determined to upgrade to the nt1100.
I was seriously considering the Africa Twin, but after the feedback I got, I think I'll be better off. off on the nt 1100 and if we are talking about colors it could even be black like my nc750x. Oh and on that cruiser I just mentioned, there is a cruiser I would buy in a heartbeat if the means were available and it may not be the bike you are thinking of, I could explain why and make it the topic of my next video if you're interested thanks for joining me again today guys here are some more videos you might enjoy bye for now.
