The Honda CTX 700 is one of those bikes for anybody, whether you're new to riding or been riding for over 50 years as I have. The first thing that caught my eye was the style. From front to back you can tell that Honda wanted to make a bike that was great to look at with everything looking organized and purposeful. The engine is a 270 degree, long proven 2 cylinder 4 stroke which they also use on the NC700 and has a long trouble free track record.

In 5th gear at 60 to 65 MPH you're turning about 3500 rpm. At 70 in 6th gear you're at 3800 rpm's. This low rpm focused design means long life, regular gasoline, 60 to 70 miles per gallon and a really fun ride. The motorcycle weighs just over 500 pounds but feels like 300 pounds because they tilted the engine forward for a very low center of gravity. The low 28 inch seat height combined with the light feel makes this an ideal motorcycle for a female rider who wants a more powerful bike.

The panniers are made by Honda and are deceptively large. Honda used a white faceplate to make them appear smaller for a stylish look but a Sam/s Club rotisserie chicken (a universal measurement) will fit in either box sideways. Under the gas fill cover is another very handy storage area (pictured), It is very convenient for sunglasses or other smaller items. I've also included a Quadlock attachment if you want it. You'll need to buy the backplate for your specific phone to attach it.

Top speed is somewhere around 110 mph and I ride with others and can stay with anyone I've ridden with. The transmission does a great job by making the gears very long so the bike never seems taxed. The seat is very, very comfortable. I once rode 140 miles without getting off the bike. My usual break is at 70 to 90 miles.

The bike does not have a lot of tech. There's no cruise control other than the throttle-lock like device I use. It doesn't have electronic suspension adjustment and there are no ride modes or the like. It was designed to be basic and that's what I like about it. With Honda reliability there's not much to go wrong, the bike only has 7000 miles, and you will get not only the owners manual but also a very thick expensive Honda shop manual- see in pictures. I buy shop manuals for my bike as a habit. I've had 8 Harley's, 4 BMWs, 3 FJRs, 3 Hayabusas, 4 Kawasaki ZX14s, a KTM 1190, a Honda Africa Twin, and others and I have really enjoyed this bike. It's just fun to ride and great for a run to the grocery store or out on twisty roads.

Thank you for looking at my ad. I do not want any "help" in selling this motorcycle.
