The marquis upgrade is arguably the addition of two-level Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)—that’s Honda-speak for traction control, which hasn’t been adjustable up until now. You can even hold the adjustment button down and turn TC off. The other big news is a boost of 75cc to the SOHC parallel twin engine, up from 670cc to 745cc, via 4mm more bore in each cylinder and the main reason for the change in nomenclature, from 700 to 750. Based on Europe’s experience with this bike already (notice the photo Honda provided is of a 2017 Euro model), we can expect a few extra horses on tap, and perhaps a bit of a dip in miles-per-gallon figures. Normally we wouldn’t mention that, but in the case of the NC, efficiency is kind of its thing.
