Unique engine architecture, with parallel cylinders canted forward by 62 degrees, offers a remarkably low centre-of-gravity, making the CTX feel smaller, lighter and easier to handle than its size would suggest.
Engineers went to great lengths to ensure the engine had a distinctive sound and feel. The 270-degree firing order, uniaxial primary counterbalance shaft and subtle combustion control measures combine to create a satisfying throb unlike anything you’ve felt before.
The low-rpm, high-torque engine is eerily smooth and produces the kind of effortless power you can use to carry that special someone, and luggage for two, across town or across the country.
Concern over fuel costs won't cut into your relaxation on longer trips. Extensive use of friction-reduction technology, advanced combustion control focused around a sophisticated fuel injection system and an overdrive six-speed transmission mean the CTX delivers exceptional, class leading fuel economy.
Suspension design further adds to the CTX’s long distance credentials. An advanced, single-shock, Pro-link rear suspension system provides superior comfort and control through increased, progressive travel. Up front, a stout 41mm front fork, mounted with sporting geometry, provides excellent feedback, enhancing confidence. If your idea of escape is chasing the sun into the next time zone, you’ll find the CTX700T a willing partner.
Final Drive : O-ring-sealed chain
Placing the catalytic converter just downstream of the exhaust ports, where exhaust gas temperatures are highest, maximizes emission control efficiency. In fact, its emission output surpasses all Canadian standards by a wide margin.
A rigid, diamond-shaped steel frame ensures both rock solid stability on high-speed highways and responsive handling when the road turns twisty.
Wide, 17 in. cast aluminum wheels at each end, shod with sporting radials, inspire confidence and will have you seeking out the more interesting roads.
Powerful front and rear disc brakes feature Honda’s advanced ABS system, offering levels of performance, safety and peace of mind in all weather conditions.
Warranty : 12 months, unlimited mileage, freely transferable warranty; extended coverage available with Honda Plus
The CTX700T’s unique fuel tank placement creates room for a convenient storage compartment where the fuel tank is traditionally located, while retaining a low seat height that allows you to “flat foot” for added security when fully loaded.
Modern, digital LCD instrumentation tells you everything you need to know on the road and includes speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low fuel gauge and two tripmeters.
The full-coverage fairing and windshield really add to your comfort on the highway. Your travelling partner will be well taken care of too with a generous, plush seat and integrated grab handles for an added feeling of security.
