2014 Honda CTX700

Posted on by  

The Honda CTX700 has a pretty versatile character being suited for a wide range of tasks.

Needless to say that the motorcycle was designed with comfort in mind, thereby you are met by a spacious saddle, an ergonomically designed handlebar with easy to read gauges and a sporty windscreen that offers great protection at highway speeds.

Talking about speed, the motorcycle is propelled by a reliable 670cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine which is kept in leash by a six speed transmission. As far as efficiency is concerned, the engine delivers an average fuel consumption of 64 MPG.

The bike rides on cast aluminum 17-inch wheels wrapped in 120/70-17 front and 160/60-17 rear tires. The wheels are combined with single front and rear disc brakes that offer a pretty good stopping power. For enhanced safety, the Honda CTX700 is also available with an optional ABS system.

Overview

Honda CTX700

Talk about a bike that can do it all: Honda’s new 2014 CTX700 is your new dream machine. Part of our new CTX series, the CTX700 offers the comfort and weather protection of a full fairing, as well as a laid-back riding position with more forward-set hand controls and footpegs. A full range of Honda Genuine Accessories lets you set it up with saddlebags, backrests, and just about any other touring- or comfort-related feature you could ever want. Best of all, you can get the new CTX700 in two versions: one with our conventional six-speed manual transmission, and one equipped with our unique automatic transmission, the revolutionary Honda Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

The CTX700 offers an automatic transmission and ABS version at a low $8,799 base MSRP*. With the DCT automatic transmission, you can shift with the push of a handlebar-mounted button, or select the automatic mode and the bike will shift itself. Plus, you get Anti-Lock Brakes for improved stopping in less than ideal conditions.

The CTX700’s 670cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine produces tons of torque and enough power for easy two-up touring. Honda twins are famous for their wide powerbands and fuel efficiency, and this new engine is one of our best.

With its relaxed riding position, the new CTX700 allows you to settle down into the bike a bit more, and get to stretch out more, too. The up-front pegs and low seat make it easy to put your feet down at stoplights, too.

We want the new CTX700 to be a bike you’ll want to ride every day, not just on weekends. That’s why we went out of our way to design in user-friendly features like the integrated storage—perfect for items you need to access fast.

Low Seat Height

Relaxed Rider Position

The CTX700 was designed for a comfortable, confidence-inspiring ride. The rider triangle was designed to provide a relaxed riding position for most riders, so you won’t feel cramped up after just a few miles down the road.

670cc Parallel-Twin Engine

With its cylinders tipped 62 degrees forward for better weight distribution, the CTX700’s engine is a big step forward in modern powerplant design. The two-cylinder format produces tons of low- and mid-range torque, and the 270-degree-phase crank and uniaxial primary balancer make it smooth, too.
