A Bike Unlike The Rest…
Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had eight or nine new motorcycles in our garages, so we could pick the perfect machine for our next ride? But unless you’re a rock star, who’s living that life? The rest of us want our bikes to offer a wide range of ability, to be as much fun on a leisurely boulevard cruise as on a weekend-long trip. That versatility is what Honda does best, and there’s no better example of that than the 2015 CTX700. Equipped with a full fairing, it provides superior comfort and weather protection when you’re spending a long day in the saddle. The laid-back riding position, including the forward-set hand controls and footpegs, help make it comfortable for relaxed street rides. And 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 CTX700 in two versions: one with our conventional six-speed manual transmission and one equipped with our exclusive automatic transmission, the revolutionary Honda Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).
Options & Pricing
As if the CTX700 weren’t innovative enough, we’re offering two versions: one with a conventional six-speed transmission and a second with our exclusive automatic transmission, Honda’s Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT).

2015 Honda CTX700 DCT ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
Incredible Technology, Incredible Value
The CTX700 offers an automatic transmission and ABS version. 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.
With its relaxed riding position, the 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.
Your Power Partner.
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 engine is one of our best.
We want the 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.
With its full-coverage fairing and windscreen, the CTX700 lets you enjoy long trips in comfort. But that fairing is a great choice for commuters on chilly mornings too—this is a bike that can really do it all.
2015 Honda CTX700 DCT ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
The Features, Quality and Valve Only a Honda Can Offer.
Our CTX series—with bikes like the CTX700—are a perfect example of Honda innovating and moving forward when everyone else is standing still. These superior machines offer the technology and features that modern riders want and need, and do it all at a price nobody can match. Add that to Honda’s reputation for quality and durability, and the CTX700 is a machine you can count on for thousands of fun, trouble-free miles.
Cast Aluminum 17-inch Wheels
The 17-inch wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from, and really help the CTX700 handle like a pro on the street. The cast wheels are light and strong, too.
Front- and Rear-Disc Brakes with Available ABS
Single front- and rear-disc brakes give the CTX700 great stopping power. The ABS option incorporates anti-lock brakes (ABS) for the best possible stopping power, especially under challenging conditions.
With 4.2 inches of travel, the CTX700 soaks up the bumps and jolts in rough pavement, but also provides excellent handling and superior feedback through the handlebar.
With its full-coverage fairing and windscreen, the CTX700 really adds to your comfort on long trips. The fairing also allows you to add accessory speakers so you can take your tunes with you.
LCD Instrument Panel
Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge and two tripmeters. The instruments are light, compact and easy to read, too.
Integrated Storage Compartment
The CTX700 offers a convenient utility compartment that’s in the fuel-tank area, making it easy to reach. It’s big enough to hold small items, and is a perfect example of how this bike fits into your life seamlessly.
Electronic Fuel Injection
Honda’s Electronic Fuel Injection means easy startups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
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.
Steel Truss Frame
Light, strong and with just the right amount of stiffness, the CTX700’s truss chassis is the foundation for impeccable handling.
Optional Automatic Transmission
Shift with the push of a handlebar-mounted button, or select the CTX700’s automatic mode and the bike will shift itself. Honda’s Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission (DCT) has been a huge hit, and once you ride a CTX700 with DCT, you’ll see why.
Low Center of Gravity
The CTX700’s low center of gravity makes for a more confidence inspiring, all-around riding experience.
Pro-Link Rear Suspension
Offering 4.3 inches of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the CTX700 eats up rough pavement while giving you a smoother ride.
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.
Low Seat Height
With a seat height of just 28.3 inches, the CTX700 is confidence-inspiring and comfortable. Combine that with the forward-set controls, and it’s easy to flat-foot it at stoplights or in parking lots.
Front and Rear Disc Brakes with Available ABS
Single front- and rear disc brakes give the CTX700 great stopping power. The ABS option incorporates anti-lock brakes for the best possible stopping power, especially under challenging conditions.
