Honda Integra NC700D Scooter Launches in South Africa
The new Honda Integra NC700D has launched in South African and is getting enthusiasts talking, thanks to its integration of the ease of use of a scooter with the dynamic performance of a motorcycle
It has a feet-forward riding position, protection from the elements, internal storage and the option of an automatic transmission in the shape of the second generation of Honda’s innovative Dual Clutch Transmission; at the same time it offers stability and handling not found on a scooter.
The result is a unique and desirable modern machine, conceived to deliver a totally engaging riding experience while benefiting from the environmental and safety technologies customers expect of a 21st century vehicle. At the heart of this new machine is a purpose-built engine and transmission package. The liquid-cooled, in-line 2-cylinder 670cm3 engine is a lightweight and compact unit positioned to give a low centre of gravity. It offers strong torque at low to medium engine rpm, where riders spend the vast majority of their riding time, together with a very usable power delivery, low exhaust gas emissions and superb fuel efficiency. The engine works with the second generation of Honda’s innovative Dual Clutch Transmission, which provides the convenience and ease of use of an automatic with the optional control of a manual mode should the rider choose it. Either mode offers clear benefits compared to more conventional CVT transmissions.
The design and engineering are fun, easy, comfortable and safe. Although the new engine and Dual Clutch transmission were critical to fulfilling the brief, the chassis too had to be truly versatile. Responsive handling was a given in order to deliver an involving and enjoyable riding experience, but the machine also needed the stability and ride quality required to commute on all kinds of roads.
Dynamic performance. The Integra offers the stability and handling performance of a conventional motorcycle. High-specification suspension, CBS and ABS, large-diameter 17" wheels and wide 120/70 front and 160/60 rear wheels and tyres further enhance the riding experience.
All-new engine . Compact and fuel efficient new 2-cylinder engine. An all-new 670cm3 in-line two cylinder unit developed to offer superb fuel efficiency (27.9km/l) together with strong performance particularly at low and medium engine rpm, the engine is key to the Integra’s fun riding experience and all-round versatility.
Advanced transmission. Second generation Dual Clutch Transmission. The Integra’s Dual Clutch transmission uses two clutches to deliver fast and smooth gearshifts in a choice of three modes. Manual (MT) allows the rider to shift gears using triggers mounted on the left handlebar, while automatic mode (AT) offers two settings: S for sporty riding and D for urban and highway use.
Stylish practicality . Innovative styling, complete comfort. The Integra is a bold and original styling statement, fusing new forms, slick surface treatments and strong lines. It offers a high level of wind protection and a relaxed, comfortable riding position.
The 2013 Integra will be launched in four colours: Pearl Cosmic Black, Pearl Sunbeam White , Ion Blue Metallic , Candy Graceful Red
