I didn't get a picture, but my local dealer had one of these today when I called in. Basically an NC750X with crash bars and an alloy sumpguard/bash plate (in black), and Knobblies. Looked quite nice, and the bash plate seemed to protect the exhaust and Cat quite well.
But ever since the NC700's came out I've thought the radiator looks to be a bit of an afterthought, and Mr Honda's done nothing to alter that in the later models. So the rad looked very vulnerable in any off-road situation, or indeed in everyday use where gravel or mud could be thrown up by the front wheel. I'm surprised the "adventure" spec didn't include any rad protection.

"They" are doing the same with the CB500X. Not understanding that a road bike is a roda bike, and a dirtbike is not a roadbike with crashbars and sump guards.
