The weight on the CTX700 does play a factor in the braking. Just like heavier vehicles need better braking system. The CTX700 and NC700 both weigh in at 500lbs. But the single disc is just enough since like we mentioned before lacks horsepower.So dual system would be for more of a supersport type bike like the CBR600+ series. I guess that kind of makes sense. But the CTX700 compared to the CBR600 is like a hundred pound difference. Wouldn't weight play a factor in the braking too?
Good to know for sure. I noticed that too on the CTX700 picture. I knew something didn't look right. But as long as it's enough braking power than it takes the worries away. Surprisingly it works for a bike with this kind of weight.The Brake setup on My NC700X has plenty of stopping power
The following bikes use the same brakes
All share the same Brakes, only difference is regular front brake gets 2 piston caliper,
ABS gets a 3 piston caliper
But all the rotors for all bikes above are the same.
this is cost saving,
Also the Rear wavy disc is cut out of the center of the front disc, another cost savings.
This means that there will be plenty of used parts available in a few years so that you should be able to keep them on the road for quite a while
The Standard NC700X 60-0 braking is in 115.8 feet the CTX will be the same
Hey West, Do you have a video of the Nc700 where it is showing how dependable the brake system is? I would think it would give some of the guys here an idea of how reliable the single rotor and caliper is.The manual NC700X is 472-lbs auto w/ abs is 505-lbs
There are youtube videos of the NC700 skidding the brakes on the Non-abs model.
There is also a You tube of the NC doing a wheelie
I think the brakes stop really well, no problems there I am 6'0" tall and 180-lbs,
I have ridden it two up yet, and have not ridden it up into the mountains yet
