2014 Honda CTX700N Review

The brilliance of honda engineering shines once once more within the whole variety of the 2014 CTX700N. This could be a bike specifically engineered to help make motorcycling a lot of approachable, reasonable and fun than ever before.

2014 Honda CTX700N Review

Thanks to some low seat height of just 28. 3 inches, riders will quickly get acclimated to life within the whole saddle. Honda’s acclaimed automatic dual clutch transmission ( dct ) provides either a absolutely automatic mode or that choice of a lot of active gear choice via “paddle-shift” type buttons upon the handlebar, and therefore the dct version conjointly will have honda’s antilock braking system ( abs ).

The 670cc parallel-twin engine features cylinders canted 62 degrees forward for higher weight distribution as well as a lower center of gravity for nimble handling. This smooth-running fuel-injected engine pumps out loads of low-end and midrange torque to simplify taking off from stops even along with the optional six-speed manual gearbox, and there’s enough power on tap for wherever the way might lead.

The open road has never looked more inviting than when you’re rolling along on the new 2014 Honda CTX700. Made for travel with an efficient fairing and windscreen up front, the CTX700 boasts features that make it an ideal partner for exploring all that the open road can offer. It starts with great rider accommodations, thanks in large part to a comfy seat that’s only 28.3 inches high-a handy aid around town. Then there’s the powerful, smooth-running 670cc engine with its twin cylinders canted 62 degrees forward for better weight distribution and a lower center of gravity for nimble handling. There’s also the option of an easy-to-use automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) or a standard six-speed manual; the DCT allows riders to instantly choose between a fully automatic mode or the option of more active gear selection via “paddle-shift” type buttons on the handlebar. Better yet, the CTX700D also comes equipped with an Antilock Braking System (ABS). With its broad power curve, light and nimble handling, roomy riding accommodations and smooth engine, the CTX700 excels at long-range travel, but these qualities also make it a terrific weekend warrior or daily rider. With all this and more, all in a very affordable package, get out and see that destination you’ve been wanting to visit-on the Honda CTX700.

2014 Honda CTX700N Key Features

Two Model Options:

- CTX700D with DCT/ABS features a second-generation automatic six-speed Honda Dual Clutch Transmission that 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.

- DCT model also features an Antilock Braking System (ABS) to provide full antilock functionality for powerful and secure braking action.

- CTX700 features a manual six-speed transmission.

- Low-seat height, along with the new Honda parallel-twin engine design, creates a very low center of gravity, making the CTX700 feel remarkably nimble and fun to ride.

- Fuel capacity of 3.17 gallons plus excellent fuel economy gives the CTX700 a long cruising range.

- A rigid and compact diamond-shape steel frame, low center of gravity and plush suspension help make the CTX700 responsive, agile and enjoyable over the long haul.

- Stout 41mm front fork provides 4.2 inches of travel, while the Pro-Link® rear suspension system delivers 4.3 inches of wheel travel.

- A remarkably low seat height of 28.3 inches helps instill rider confidence.

- Open, roomy ergonomics position the rider in a well-balanced seating position for all-day comfort.

- A large array of available accessories allows owners to add just the right combination of capabilities to suit individual preferences and expand their adventures.

Part of the new CTX series, the CTX700N offers a laid-back riding position with more forward-set hand controls and footpegs, and a low 28.3-inch seat height. And we didn’t forget the tech: there’s an available automatic (DCT) transmission and ABS version for smooth shifting and strong stopping in less than ideal conditions. Both versions feature the fuel-efficient 670cc twin-cylinder engine in our award-winning NC700X.

The CTX700N offers an automatic transmission and ABS version at a low $7,999 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.

Honda’s new CTX series is all about making motorcycling fun and accessible. The CTX700N’s relaxed riding position and low seat help achieve this goal.

The CTX700N’s 670cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine produces tons of torque and enough power for easy two-up cruising. Honda twins are famous for their wide powerbands and efficiency, and this new engine is one of our best.

We want the new CTX700N 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 user-friendly features like the integrated storage—perfect for items you need to access fast.
