About the 2014 Honda CTX1300

The CTX1300 is powered by 1,261-cc, 90-degree V4. Its estimated 83 horsepower is some 35 ponies down from the ST, mainly due to lower compression pistons, smaller valves and some decidedly low-bump camshafts.

The CTX’s rendition of the big V4 is the very definition of rheostat-like power; there are no peaks and valleys to the 1300’s powerband, only a constant rush of power no matter what rpm the engine is spinning. 

The CTX’s steering is perfectly neutral, the suspension is more than well damped and its brakes as powerful as anything in sport touring. With low centre of gravity and that wide handlebar, it’s a doddle to manouevre at low speed.

Despite its cruiser styling, the CTX’s seating position is traditional; no feet-forward V-Rod back ache. The bike offers tourer-like comfort, seat is broad, almost completely flat and perfectly suitable for eating up miles on the superslap.

The glaring exception is wind protection. The standard windscreen is a Road Glide-like cut down affair, which is good for minimizing turbulence but offers minimal wind protection. At a price of $18,999, CTX1300 is an amazingly competent motorcycle, one that pays little price for its cruiser styling.
