To a non-motorcyclist, car-bike experiments of recent times—Honda's 1990s Pacific Coast and more recent NC700X, for example—look just like motorcycles. Non-motorcyclists were their hoped-for buyers: The PC800 was aimed at a theoretical customer in stylish all-new clothes who owned a German car, wanted a bike, but found existing bikes just too…raunchy and, frankly, challenging. For them, PC would be a teddy bear on two wheels—just right. And NC700X, built with scooter fit and finish, its parallel-twin now displacing 745cc, was intended to lure to showrooms untold thousands who thought a motorcycle the ideal "urban vehicle" save for two faults: no onboard lockable storage and the rorty, are-you-man-enough question that traditional motorcycles ask: When do we leave for Patagonia? And, can't you lap under 1 minute, 29 seconds?
