Honda had three primary goals with the CTX700: Comfort, Technology and a great riding eXperience, hence the CTX name. To meet these points, the CTX needed to have a low seat height (28.3 inches), low center of gravity, unintimidating power delivery and an optional Dual-Clutch Transmission to capture those riders unfamiliar with operating a manual motorcycle transmission. It also has ABS brakes on it.
The moderately feet-forward footpegs provide a relaxed bend to the knees without making you feel stretched out. Handlebar placement is good, as well; your hands rest comfortably on the pulled-back grips to create an almost-vertical upper torso. The wide, well-cushioned seat is designed for light touring and all-day comfort.
The 700cc Twin DCT provides torque that seems like it’s always on tap. It makes leaving stoplights incredibly easy, and fun. With the DCT, it has a "multi-mode", fully auto or manual-shifting (via left-bar mounted paddles) transmission, and it is a great fit with the parallel-Twin’s power characteristics. In Drive mode, you can turn your brain off and ride the bike like a scooter and let it make the decisions. For more aggressive shift points, simply switch it over to Sport. Or, if you want total control, simple use the paddle shifters. If there was ever a bike seemingly perfect for a DCT system, the CTX is it, Fun, and easy to ride, and it is a Honda!!! It has only 4,199 Miles on it, fully serviced and ready to ride!!!
