The Honda NT700V touring bike won’t scream intimidation to high heavens, but it can take you from point A to point B in a trendy and fashionable way.

The rich pearl black and silver polished finish of the NT700V makes for an attractive two-wheeled ride, and when you combine that with an impressive 680cc liquid-cooled 52° SOHC, four-cylinder V-twin engine that produces tidy horsepower, then you have the perfect everyday commuter. The bike also comes with a 41mm telescopic fork front suspension and a single shock with remote spring pre-load adjustability rear suspension plus dual 296mm front disc brakes, and a single 276mm rear disc brake.

The NT700V also features a fully-equipped fairing, interlinked saddlebags, a 45-liter rear trunk, an inner bag-trunk, a lower rear trunk pad, a wind deflector set, a knee pad set, heated grips, a tank pad, and an outdoor cycle cover.

It’s not the most powerful bike on the market, but as far as everyday commuting on a two-wheeled cruiser is concerned, the Honda NT700V has all the elements to make for a no-frills everyday bike that you can take anywhere you want to go.
