Just took an NC700X out for a test ride. Color me impressed!
It wasn't a super long test ride, but long enough for me to confirm that what I've read in all the reviews are pretty much spot on. Acceleration up to 85 - 90ish is more than sufficient for passing on two lane roads, the bike is quite flickable, and the brakes do an excellent job. My Nolan N90 fit just fine in the "not a gastank" :P I definitely would see a bigger windscreen in it's future if I were to get one. Sorry so brief, I'm not a real flowery writer though.
p.s. My Nomad is for sale if anyone is interested. :P
