2017 Honda CTX700 DCT

/
Always Looking Forward.

The CTX700 DCT is the ultimate combination of innovation and performance. It’s pure Honda and the best of motorcycling: light weight, low seat height, superior weather protection, plenty of easy-to-use power, and best of all it comes with Honda’s exclusive automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT).

Check out all it offers: First, CTX700 has a full fairing for superior comfort and weather protection no matter how long you’re riding. Plus, the laid-back riding position, including the forward-set hand controls and footpegs, are perfect for relaxed street rides. And while the CTX700 may be advanced, we’ve left plenty room for you to keep improving it. Our full range of Honda Genuine Accessories lets you set it up with saddlebags, backrests, and just about any other touring- or comfort-related feature you can imagine.

Innovations

  • CAST ALUMINUM 17-INCH WHEELS: The 17-inch wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from, and really help the CTX700 handle like a pro on the street. The cast wheels are light and strong, too.
  • FRONT AND REAR-DISC BRAKES WITH AVAILABLE ABS: Single front- and rear-disc brakes give the CTX700 great stopping power. You also get anti-lock brakes (ABS) for the best possible stopping power, especially under challenging conditions.
  • 41mm FORK: With 4.2 inches of travel, the CTX700 soaks up the bumps and jolts in rough pavement, but also provides excellent handling and superior feedback through the handlebar.
  • FULL-COVERAGE FAIRING: With its full-coverage fairing and windscreen, the CTX700 really adds to your comfort on long trips. The fairing upper and lower components are unique to this model, and are integrated with the rest of the bike.
  • LCD INSTRUMENT PANEL: Full digital LCD instrumentation includes digital speedometer, digital bar-type tachometer, clock, low-fuel gauge, and two tripmeters. The instruments are light, compact, and easy to read, too.
  • INTEGRATED STORAGE COMPARTMENT: The CTX700 offers a convenient utility compartment that’s in the fuel-tank area, making it easy to reach.
  • ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION: Honda’s Electronic Fuel Injection means easy startups on cold mornings and flawless running even at high elevations.
  • 670cc PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE: With its cylinders tipped 62 degrees forward for better weight distribution, the CTX700’s engine is a big step forward in modern powerplant design. The two-cylinder format produces tons of low- and mid-range torque, and the 270-degree-phase crank and uniaxial primary balancer make it smooth, too.
  • AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION: Shift with the push of a handlebar-mounted button, or select the CTX700’s automatic mode and the bike will shift itself. Honda’s Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) has been a huge hit, and once you ride a CTX700 with DCT, you’ll see why.
  • DIAMOND-SHAPED STEEL FRAME: Light, strong, and with just the right amount of stiffness, the CTX700’s rigid and compact chassis is the foundation for precise handling.
  • RELAXED RIDER POSITION: The CTX700 was designed for a comfortable, confidence-inspiring ride. The rider triangle was designed to provide a relaxed riding position for most riders, so you won't feel cramped up after just a few miles down the road.
  • LOW SEAT HEIGHT: With a seat height of just 28.3 inches, the CTX700 is confidence-inspiring and comfortable. Combine that with the forward-set controls, and it’s easy to flat-foot it at stoplights or in parking lots.
  • LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY: The CTX700's low center of gravity makes for a more confidence inspiring, all-around riding experience.
  • PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION: Offering 4.3 inches of rear-wheel travel and teamed with a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) rear shock, the CTX700 eats up rough pavement while giving you a smoother ride.
  • FRONT AND REAR-DISC BRAKES WITH AVAILABLE ABS: Single front- and rear-disc brakes give the CTX700 great stopping power. You also get anti-lock brakes (ABS) for the best possible stopping power, especially under challenging conditions.
  • CAST ALUMINUM 17-INCH WHEELS: The 17-inch wheels give you a wide choice of premium tires to choose from, and really help the CTX700 handle like a pro on the street. The cast wheels are light and strong, too.
