2016 Honda CTX700 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

700cc of Pure Individuality…

Anybody who thinks touring bikes need to be two-wheeled motorhomes hasn’t seen a Honda CTX700. Here’s a machine that embraces the best of motorcycling: light weight, low seat height, superior weather protection, plenty of easy-to-use power, and best of all, the freedom that comes when you strap on a helmet, slip into your favorite leather jacket, and get out on the road.

But the CTX700 isn’t just for vacations. Versatility is what this Honda does best. 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).


Incredible Technology, Incredible Value

The CTX700 offers an automatic transmission and ABS version at a low 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.


Day-Long Riding Comfort

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.


Go Ahead—Take it With You

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.


Full-Fairing Comfort

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.


Make It Your Own

A wide array of accessories designed specifically for the CTX700 is available to help you get what you want out of your ride. Best of all, they feature the same quality and durability you’ve come to expect from Honda.

2016 Honda CTX700 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

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.

 

41mm Fork

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.

 

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.

 

Full-Coverage Fairing

With its full-coverage fairing and windscreen, the CTX700 really adds to your comfort on long trips. The fairing upper and lower components are unique to this model, and are integrated with rest of the bike.

 

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. The DCT/ABS version adds a gear position indicator.

 

Integrated Storage Compartment

The CTX700 offers a convenient utility compartment that’s in the fuel-tank area, making it easy to reach.

 

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.

 

Diamond-Shaped Steel Frame

Light, strong, and with just the right amount of stiffness, the CTX700’s rigid and compact chassis is the foundation for precise 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 (ABS) for the best possible stopping power, especially under challenging conditions.

 

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.
