Am I sorry to see the NT go back to Honda? Yes and no. While it has performed very well as a daily commuter, the lack of horsepower from its 700cc V-twin engine severely limits it as a tourer, particularly two-up. But the biggest obstacle to NT ownership may be its price: Equipped with the accessory top case, heated handgrips and the wind-deflector kit, it costs more than $12,000—halfway to a Gold Wing, and three-quarters of the way to a multi-cylinder sport-tourer. On top of that, American Honda doesn’t import some NT accessories such as the larger saddlebag lids and the stereo, so owners will have to order those from Europe.
