The 2022 Honda NC750X: An All-Around Adventure Workhorse
The Honda NC750X has always been a versatile middleweight adventure bike, offering a blend of comfort, practicality, and power for everything from city traffic to trail riding. Of all the major Japanese motorcycle makers, Honda seems particularly adept at balancing performance with rider-friendliness, and the 2022 NC750X is no exception.
Honda has changed nothing from 2021 here—unless you count the price, which is $200 more than last year’s model. But that’s not to say it isn’t still a good deal. After all, the NC750X got fairly major changes last year, including a significant boost in power from tuning its 745cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine for Euro5 compliance.
That engine manages to put out 58 hp and 51 lb-ft of torque—not insane by any standards, but certainly enough to move its 472 lb up and down hills or trails without any sluggishness. What is pretty insane, however, is the fuel efficiency on this thing. Ever since 2021, the NC750X has managed to wring an eyebrow-raising 67 mpg out of its 3.7 gallon tank, giving it a range of 248 miles.
Honda’s 2022 motorcycle lineup has plenty of bigger and more powerful bikes on it—but that doesn’t always mean everything. If you’re looking for a capable and comfortable mid-size adventure bike that can take you to the farthest-flung corners of your local chunk of wilderness, the 2022 NC750X might be just the thing.
The 2022 Honda NC750X starts at $8,699 USD / $9,899 CAD.

2022 Honda NC750X Features
With Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) you can choose a level which allows some rear-wheel spin—on gravel or dirt for instance—or pick a second level which reduces wheel spin, particularly on slippery roads. It’s a great feature that helps make the NC750X even more versatile. (Available on DCT model only.)
THROTTLE BY WIRE
The NC750X features throttle-by-wire (TBW) technology. That also lets us give you four selectable engine power-delivery modes: Standard, Rain, Sport, and an additional user-customizable setting.
With 5.4 inches of travel, you get a perfect balance between a long-distance and a short-hop street machine. This gives it a wide range of capability, good handling and helps inspire confidence.
DISC BRAKES WITH COMBINED ABS
Single front and rear disc brakes give the NC750X great stopping power. Now standard on all NC750X models, you’ll get ABS brakes that are linked rear-to-front for added stopping power, even under challenging conditions.
LCD INSTRUMENT PANEL
Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge and two trip meters. Plus, the tach bar graph changes color according to fuel consumption, RPM, gear position and more.
The 2022 NC750X offers a large 23-liter utility compartment that’s big enough to hold most dual-sport full-face helmets with a visor, and then some. Secure and convenient, you’ll use it every time you ride.
AUTOMATIC DUAL-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION (DCT)
Shift with the push of a button, or select the NC750X’s automatic mode and the bike will shift itself. Our Automatic DCT offers three riding modes as well, depending on the kind of performance you want. It’s been a huge hit on our other models, and once you ride an NC750X with DCT, you’ll see why.
UNDER-SEAT FUEL TANK
The 3.7-gallon under-seat fuel tank centralizes mass and enhances overall handling. Locating the tank and filler underneath the passenger seat allows for innovative centralized storage between the front of the seat and the handlebar.
With its cylinders tipped 55° forward for lower center of gravity, the NC750X’s engine is a big step forward in modern powerplant design. The two-cylinder format produces tons of low- and mid-range torque, and the 270°-phase crank and uniaxial primary balancer make it smooth, too.
On our manual-transmission NC750X, you get a slipper clutch that helps eliminate wheel hop under downshifting, and which also lightens clutch-lever pull by 20 percent.
CAST ALUMINUM 17-INCH WHEELS
The 17-inch wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from and really help the NC750X offer responsive handling in turns. The cast wheels are light and strong, and look great too.
ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION
Carbureted engines can be fussy when it comes to feeding them fuel. Not the NC750X. Electronic Fuel Injection means easy start-ups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
PRO-LINK® HMAS REAR SUSPENSION
Offering 5.9 inches of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the NC750X eats up the gnarliest pavement while giving you a smooth ride.
STEEL TRUSS FRAME
Light, strong and with just the right amount of stiffness, the NC750X’s rigid and compact chassis is the foundation for precise handling.
The NC750X offers just the right amount of bodywork—enough to offer good wind protection, but not so much that the bike feels heavy or wide.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
The NC750X’s 31.6-inch seat height is low by adventure-bike standards, and that makes it even more rider friendly in traffic or in parking lots.
STREAMLINED COWL AND BODYWORK
Think the 2022 NC750X looks sharp? The cowl and windscreen offer welcome wind protection, and the sharp styling freshens up the bike’s look too.
EXTRA COMFORTABLE SEAT
On a bike like the NC750X, you’ll probably want to extend your adventures and take some longer trips. That’s why we gave it a seat with a shape that’s both supportive enough for cornering and comfortable even when the miles stack up.
Because the NC750X is so versatile, we offer a wide range of Honda accessories to help you custom tailor it for your adventures. Choose from top-box carriers, USB ports, tall windscreens, centerstands, cowl guards, saddlebags, heated grips and much, much more.
