The Evolution Of Our CTX Family: The New CTX1300…

The all-new CTX1300 expands the innovative concept first introduced with the CTX series-the idea of combining higher levels of comfort and technology to create a riding experience unique to Honda. These bikes place a premium on ease of use and a spacious rider environment with comfortable ergonomics. But now, by extending Honda’s longstanding and successful heritage of V-4 technology, the CTX1300 adds a full load of 1300-class muscle with exhilarating right-now thrust accompanied by a distinctive V-4 engine pulse and exhaust note. That helps make the CTX1300 an advanced motorcycle in multiple ways-one that incorporates class-leading comfort, unusually broad-shouldered versatility and new technology to deliver an unmatched riding experience. Its moderate weight, low center of gravity (CG) and nimble handling make the CTX1300 a joy to ride wherever the day may lead, while its styling gives it a unique look that makes it stand out in a crowd. There’s also a Deluxe model that adds technology such as an audio package including Bluetooth® connectivity, self-cancelling turn signals, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Traction Control, plus blacked-out styling elements that all add to the CTX1300’s distinctive equation.

Some motorcycles take a proven formula and change it up a little. Then there’s Honda’s new CTX family of bikes—they’ve blown their class wide open and completely reinvented it.

The new CTX1300 is a great example: With a 1261cc V-4 engine it has plenty of power. Innovations abound in the integrated bodywork. Best of all, it’s available in two versions: the CTX1300 and the CTX1300 Deluxe, with Bluetooth® Audio, anti-lock brakes, self-cancelling turn signals, traction control and a blacked-out look.


Progress. Advancement. Evolution.

It’s the law of nature. You evolve or fall by the wayside. The new Honda CTX1300 is an evolutionary step in motorcycling. Watch the video to find out why.


1261cc V-4 Engine

Specially tuned for more low-to-midrange torque, the CTX1300 offers a responsive powerbands that greatly enhances your experience on the bike. One ride and you’ll see what we mean.


Integrated Saddlebags

Going on a trip? The CTX1300 is the perfect choice, thanks to the sleek, integrated saddlebags. A low-cut windscreen for style and wind-cheating bodywork help keep you looking good and comfortable for the long haul.


Low Seat Height

With a CTX1300, the low seat is great at stoplights, comfortable for cruising and helps contribute to the bike’s low center of gravity, making for a pleasurable, confidence-inspiring ride.

Low-Cut Windscreen

The low-cut windscreen helps reduce wind buffeting and blends perfectly with the low, lean styling of the CTX1300. Need a taller screen? No problem—there’s one available as an accessory.

LCD Info Screen

Mounted in the center of the instrument console, the LCD screen provides useful information such as fuel range, MPG, ambient air temperature, and trip odometer. The Deluxe model can also display song and artist information from your device.

Audio System with Bluetooth Connectivity

The CTX1300 Deluxe features a premium audio system that pairs with your device to make a memorable ride even better. The system includes wireless Bluetooth technology that seamlessly integrates with many mobile audio and accessory devices.

Storage Compartments with USB port

Tucked into the CTX1300’s fairing are two storage containers for smaller items. On the Deluxe model, you also get a USB port to charge your phone or play MP3 music files.

LED Lighting

Clear, crisp, bright: the latest LED technology lets the CTX1300’s headlight and unique accent lights do more than just light up the night—it gives the bike a strong styling element.. The tallight and turn signals are also brilliant, long-lasting LEDs.

Inverted Fork

A feature that not only looks great but works even better, the CTX1300’s inverted fork helps with the bike’s precise steering and excellent comfort and handling.

Unique Wheels and Tires

A fat 200-series rear tire and stylish 10-spoke cast wheels give the CTX1300 aggressive style—on the Deluxe model, the wheels are blacked-out to match the other styling elements

Anti-Lock Brakes

Motorcycling can throw you lots of unexpected surprises—that’s where Anti-Lock Brakes can be a big help, when you need to make controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions. Under normal operation you’ll never know it they’re there, but when you need them, they’re always there to back you up.

Stylish and Functional Bodywork

The CTX1300’s fairing helps make both your commute and long distance trips a whole lot more pleasant. Stylish and functional, the bodywork reduces wind buffeting and provides some extra storage, too..

1261 cc V-4 Engine

Nothing sounds like a V-4 engine, and nothing feels like one either. Longitudinal engine mounting improves power transfer and drivetrain efficiency, two engine counterbalancers eliminate vibration for super-smooth running, and its specially tuned 1261 cc engine offers plenty of power for long-distance touring.

Low Seat Height

Nice and low—that’s how most riders like their seat heights, and that’s exactly how we built the new CTX1300. The low seat makes it easy to flat-foot it in parking lots or at stoplights, and just plain feels great, too. . The low seat and uniquely designed fuel tank help lower the bike’s center of gravity and inspire confidence.

Adjustable Rear Suspension

The dual pre-load adjustable rear shocks pair with the CTX1300’s aluminum swingarm to allow you to dial in the level of comfort and handling that’s right for you.

Passenger Seat Comfort

The CTX1300 designers know that on a bike this cool, passengers will be begging for a ride. The wider, flatter seat and integrated handrails provide a higher level of passenger comfort. There’s also an available accessory backrest.
