The Honda CTX700 is something of a entry-level tourer, the 2014 Honda CTX700 combines a manageable engine size of 670cc with an inviting 719mm seat height to bring the open road to riders who may have been intimidated by larger machines.
For the engine Honda has created a whole new 670cc (73mm bore with 80mm stroke), SOHC parallel-twin engine.
An abbreviated fairing gives some protection, while still giving the rider a feel for the elements. To customize the Honda CTX700 to each buyer's touring needs, options include hard side bags, a passenger backrest (with integrated luggage rack), and a taller windshield. A CTX700D version comes equipped with Honda's semi- and fully automatic Dual Clutch Transmission and ABS. The 2014 Honda CTX700N is a forward-looking cruiser that is designed to entice new riders into the market. The undersquare 670cc forward-canted balanced engine, which Honda also use for the regular CTX700, and 719mm seat height make the CTX700N very accessible, and the forward foot controls give the rider the profile he wants.
Honda will also introduce a CTX700ND version which includes the high tech Dual Clutch Transmission so you can operate the motorcycle automatic and semi-automatic, of course Honda will also include ABS.
