KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS :-

  • Sophisticated liquid-cooled SOHC eight-valve 670cc parallel-twin engine pumps out abundant torque in the low-end and midrange for easily accessible power.
  • impressively broad torque curve gives the CTX700N a linear and smooth power delivery.
  • A relatively long engine stroke (80.0mm combined with a 73.0mm bore) and a high-inertia crankshaft are design elements that add to the CTX700N’s extremely tractable power characteristics.
  • The 62-degree forward lean given to the cylinder assembly facilitates near-vertical mounting of the single 36mm throttle body for superior intake port positioning and shaping. In addition, special shaping to the combustion chambers further enhance engine combustion efficiency for clean burning and optimal power production.
  • An engine balancer shaft quells vibration for smooth, comfortable operation, and rubber-mounted footrests add to rider comfort.
  • Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) continuously monitors numerous variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture for existing riding and atmospheric conditions, thereby delivering optimal performance and remarkably crisp throttle response over a wide range of operating conditions.

Two Model Options:

  • CTX700ND with DCT/ABS features a second-generation automatic six-speed Honda Dual Clutch Transmission that uses two hydraulically controlled clutches to deliver quick and smooth gear changes in a choice of three modes: Manual (MT), which allows the rider to shift gears using buttons, and two automatic (AT) modes—S for sport riding and D for everyday use.
  • DCT model also features and Antilock Braking System (ABS) to provide full antilock functionality for powerful and secure braking action.
  • CTX700N features a manual six-speed transmission.
  • Low seat height, along with the new Honda parallel-twin engine design, creates a very low center of gravity, making the CTX700N feel remarkably nimble and fun to ride.
  • Fuel capacity of 3.17 gallons and great fuel economy give the CTX700N a long cruising range.
  • A rigid and compact diamond-shape steel frame, low center of gravity and plush suspension help make the CTX700N responsive, agile and enjoyable to ride all day.

  • A remarkably low seat height of 28.3 inches helps instill rider confidence.
