About the 2018 Honda CTX700N

Honda 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.

This is a bike specifically engineered to make motorcycling more approachable, affordable, and fun than ever before. Thanks to a low seat height, riders can quickly get acclimated to life in the saddle. Beneath the fuel tank cover, there’s a handy glove box area, and the fuel is carried below.

Honda’s acclaimed automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) provides either a fully automatic mode or the option of more active gear selection via “paddle-shift” type buttons on the handlebar, and the DCT version also comes with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

The 670cc parallel-twin engine features cylinders canted 62 degrees forward for enhanced weight distribution and a lower center of gravity for ease of handling. This smooth-running fuel-injected engine pumps out loads of low-end and midrange torque to simplify launching from stops even with the optional six-speed manual gearbox.

The CTX700N – wearing a svelte nose cowl – injects a sense of freedom and space into any ride. It’s fitted as standard with ABS and there’s a whole range of dedicated Honda Genuine Accessories ready for an owner to further personalize their CTX.
