About the 2018 Honda CTX700

For riders who do not need a large-capacity motorcycle to tour the country or commute to work, and like the convenience of an automatic transmission, the Honda CTX700 DCT stands alone.

The low-revving motor is a perfect match to the two-mode (sport and standard) automatic shifting the nearly seamless six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Riders who prefer to have some control over the shifting can use the manual mode, which uses your left finger and thumb for gear changes—there is no clutch lever.

While it has a 670cc engine, it has the power to take you up to highway speeds for as far as you want to ride. Handling is light and easy on the neo-cruiser, yet it remains stable for those who want to add Honda Genuine Accessories saddlebags.

With its full-coverage fairing and windscreen, the CTX700 lets you enjoy long trips in comfort. But that fairing is a great choice for commuters on chilly mornings too—this is a bike that can really do it all.

A wide array of accessories designed specifically for the CTX700 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.
