    The choice is always a difficult one. Some pointers:

    - Sudden acceleration and excessive speed: You are in control of the throttle. You know whether you can be trusted with it.Yes, which is why I'm reluctant to put myself in a situation where I'm tempted to open up, or be in a bad position when I "skrik"

    With all due respect, if you cannot control yourself, a 125 can and will kill you. You need to be in total control. If you cannot be, stay off a bike.
    - Light and maneuverable: This depends so much on experience, I don't see this as a major factor. The Honda NC is a heavy bugger, yet, none of its owners ever complain that it is not light and nimble. Mhmmm... Didn't realise it's such a heavy horse...

    Weighs the same as a BMW R1200GS! This is not an issue though.

    From what I am hearing you say, the Honda NC is possibly the bike for you. I see one nearby from a Honda dealer: 2014 NC750X 5500km R 69 900 (a little more than I'd prefer), but it does seem very low cost for such low km. Thoughts?

    They were pretty competitively priced back then, so the price sounds about right. Just a thought. Is this a 750? Not a 700? Were the 750 already available in 2014?

    Service Plans: As far as I am aware no one does bikes. I may be wrong.

    I am fully prepared of the risks involved with a bike, but when it comes to safety I feel it's better to err on the side of caution.

    I think it is a NC700 and not NC750, but the listing says 750. Merits a visit, methinks.
    Ride so you can ride again tomorrow.

    It could be a 750. Seems they came out during 2014. Either way, I agree that it is worth a visit.

    My first NC was a 750, bought in February 2014

    And my second NC is a February 2017 model, and strangely enough it is also a 750cc
