Honda NC700/750 (2012-on)
Another utility bike, but with a lot of thought put into it. Very good chassis, centralised mass and a low centre of gravity, good brakes, and a torquey engine with a low redline. Incredibly efficient, long service intervals, and as close to fuss-free motorcycling as you’ll get. Not the cheapest to buy, but cheap to keep.
What you’ll pay now £2000-£6000 But should you? Not if you crave excitement.
