2018 Honda CTX700 DCT Review on Total Motorcycle:

The brilliance of Honda engineering shines once again in the form of the 2017 CTX700 DCT. This is a bike specifically engineered to make motorcycling more approachable, affordable and fun than ever before. Thanks to a low seat height of only 28.3 inches, riders can quickly become acclimated to life in the saddle. Honda’s acclaimed automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) provides either a fully automatic mode or the option of more active gear selection via paddle-shift buttons on the handlebar, and it comes with an Antilock Braking System (ABS). The 670cc parallel-twin engine features cylinders canted 62 degrees forward for enhanced weight distribution and a low center of gravity for ease of handling. This smooth-running fuel-injected engine pumps out loads of low-end and midrange torque to simplify launching from stops, and there’s enough power on tap for wherever the road may lead. Beneath the fuel-tank cover there’s a handy glove-box area, and the fuel is carried below. All in all, the CTX700 DCT is an amazingly affordable, fun, friendly, and comfortable bike that is great for everyday rides, weekend trips, two-up exploring, or just about anything else you can dream up.

2018 Honda CTX700 DCT Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine/Drivetrain
•Sophisticated liquid-cooled SOHC eight-valve 670cc parallel-twin engine pumps out abundant torque in the low-end and midrange for easily accessible power.
•An impressively broad torque curve gives the CTX700 DCT a linear, smooth power delivery.
•A relatively long engine stroke (80.0mm combined with a 73.0mm bore) and a high-inertia crankshaft are design elements that add to the CTX700 DCT’s extremely tractable power characteristics.
•Honda’s six-speed automatic Dual Clutch Transmission uses two hydraulically controlled clutches to deliver quick and smooth gear changes in a choice of three modes: Manual (MT), which allows the rider to shift gears using buttons, and two automatic (AT) modes—S for sport riding and D for everyday use.
•The 62-degree forward lean given to the cylinder assembly facilitates near-vertical mounting of the single 36mm throttle body for superior intake port positioning and shaping. In addition, special shaping to the combustion chambers further enhance engine combustion efficiency for clean burning and optimal power production.
•An engine balancer shaft quells vibration for smooth, comfortable operation, and rubber-mounted footrests add to rider comfort.
•Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) continuously monitors numerous variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture for existing riding and atmospheric conditions, thereby delivering optimal performance and remarkably crisp throttle response over a wide range of operating conditions.

Chassis/Suspension
•Antilock Braking System (ABS) provides full antilock functionality for secure braking action.
•Low seat height and very low center of gravity make the CTX700 DCT feel remarkably nimble and fun to ride.
•Fuel capacity of 3.27 gallons and great fuel efficiency give the CTX700 DCT a long cruising range.
•A rigid, compact diamond-shape steel frame, low center of gravity, and plush suspension help make the CTX700 DCT responsive, agile and enjoyable to ride all day.
•Stout 41mm fork provides 4.2 inches of travel, while the Pro-Link® rear suspension system delivers 4.3 inches of wheel travel.
•Open, roomy ergonomics position the rider in a well-balanced seating position for all-day comfort and fun.
