CTX1300 / Overzicht

The heart and soul of the CTX1300 is its water-cooled V4 engine. Derived from the ST1300 it features modifications to bolster low and mid-range torque plus give a more characterful sound and V4 ‘backbeat’ from the exhausts. Tuned to give strong acceleration from low rpm and a relaxed feel at highway speeds it features taller gearing, with five-speed gearbox and shaft drive.

A new steel double cradle frame, 45mm inverted forks, twin rear shocks and aluminium swingarm provide a comfortable ride with neutral and engaging handling. Honda’s Dual Combined ABS and Traction Control System (TCS) work hand in hand to deliver confident braking and consistent traction at all times.

The CTX1300’s modern cohesive styling grabs attention with a long and low look, taking cues from the stunning big-brother Gold Wing F6B. But it’s also a motorcycle built to be practical ­and easy to ride with a low seat height, natural riding position, an efficient fairing and standard-fit twin rear panniers. The twin-speaker stereo system is smartphone and Bluetooth compatible.

A deft combination of soul and technology, the CTX1300 is designed to look good around town, boulevard cruising traffic-light-to-traffic-light, and to function fully for longer haul, two-up trips. It’s a new breed of motorcycle built with a feel-good factor, and to deliver pure riding pleasure.
