CTX700

The CTX700 - based on the popular NC700s platform - is a brand new, distinctively-styled A2 licence-ready model, combining the best attributes of cruiser and street motorcycles, with a torquey parallel twin-cylinder engine and standard-fit DCT and ABS.

Styling

For Honda's development team styling inspiration was drawn from a number of areas, including the 'Horizontal Dynamic' of Honda's GL1800 Gold Wing. 'Front Massive' mass centralization gives the CTX700 muscular and powerful lines with each part's functionality boldly emphasised.

The large fairing not only provides excellent wind protection - it's also a major styling element, flowing elegantly into the fuel tank cover, the line continuing on to the tapering tail unit. It houses the dash which features air vents either side to equalise pressure. A short screen takes styling cues from the Gold Wing F6B and helps envelope the rider in a pocket of still air.

Engine

The 670cc liquid-cooled 8-valve SOHC parallel twin-cylinder engine powering the CTX700 was designed from the outset to deliver outstanding bottom-end and mid-range torque - the rpm area many riders use the most on the road - with superb fuel efficiency.

Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)

Honda's second-generation DCT gearbox offers a real-world riding advantage and convenience. A world first for motorcycles when launched on the VFR1200F in 2010, DCT provides a unique combination of direct riding feel and ease of use, making it a natural fit for the CTX700.
