2016 Honda CTX700N DCT ABS
Not Just Another Cruiser
Turn on the TV, head down to your nearest hangout, go for a burger on the weekend, and you’re going to see cruiser-style motorcycle, guaranteed. And why not? Cruisers are a great choice for thousands of riders: the low seat heights, the relaxed riding positions, the rider-friendly power delivery. The only problem is that a lot of them start looking alike, and a lot of riders think a cruiser should be all about individuality.
That’s where the Honda CTX700N comes in. We took the best parts of the cruiser idiom (laid-back seating, forward-set pegs, torque-rich twin-cylinder engine that you don’t have to rev for power) and put them together into a package unlike anything else you’ll see on the road. The low 28.3-inch seat height makes this a great choice for both urban riders who have to deal with stoplights and parking lots as well as anyone who likes a machine with a lower center of gravity. And there’s plenty of class-leading technology in this bike too. For example, you can get a version with Honda’s automatic (DCT) transmission and Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), as well as a standard six-speed model.
Incredible Technology, Incredible Value: The CTX700N offers an automatic transmission and ABS. 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.
Comfortable Cruising: Honda’s CTX series is all about making motorcycling fun and accessible. The CTX700N’s relaxed riding position and low seat help achieve this goal.
Your Power Partner: 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 engine is one of our best.
Convenient Storage: We want the 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 in user-friendly features like the integrated storage—perfect for items you need to access fast.
Make It Your Own: A wide array of accessories designed specifically for the CTX700N 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.
- 670cc Parallel-Twin Engine: With its cylinders tipped 62 degrees forward for better weight distribution, the CTX700N’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.
- Electronic Fuel Injection: Honda’s Electronic Fuel Injection means easy startups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
- Reduced Vibration: You don't need to rattle and shake when riding a motorcycle. The CTX700N's engine counterbalancer and rubber-mounted footpegs let you enjoy the ride on your commute or on a weekend getaway.
- Diamond-Shape 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.
- 41mm Fork: With 4.2 inches of travel, the CTX700N soaks up the bumps and jolts in rough pavement, but also provides excellent handling and superior feedback through the handlebar.
- Pro-Link Rear Suspension: Offering 4.3 inches of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the CTX700N eats up rough pavement while giving you a smoother ride.
- Front- and Rear-Disc Brakes with Available ABS: Single front- and rear-disc brakes give the CTX700N great stopping power. The ABS option incorporates anti-lock brakes 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 CTX700N handle like a pro on the street. The cast wheels are light and strong too.
- Low Center of Gravity: The CTX700N's low center of gravity makes for a more confidence inspiring, all-around riding experience.
- Relaxed Rider Position: The CTX700N 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: The seat’s low profile and contour makes it easier for riders to reach the footpegs, and that helps inspire confidence.
- LCD Instrument Panel: Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge and two tripmeters. The instruments are compact and easy to read, too. The DCT/ABS version adds a gear position indicator.
- Integrated Storage Compartment: The CTX700N 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.
- Optional Automatic Transmission: Shift with the push of a handlebar-mounted button, or select the CTX700N’s automatic mode and the bike will shift itself. Honda’s Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) has been a huge hit, and once you ride a CTX700N with DCT, you’ll see why.
