Honda CTX700N With DCT and ABS
Motorcycle Reviews |
November 21, 2013 - "The brilliance of Honda
engineering shines once again in the form of the 2014 CTX700N. This is a
bike specifically engineered to make motorcycling more approachable,
affordable and fun than ever before."
Thanks to a low seat height of only 28.3 inches, riders can quickly get
acclimated to life in the saddle. 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 Antilock 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, and there’s enough power on tap for wherever the
road may lead.
Beneath the fuel tank cover there’s a handy glove box area, and the fuel
is carried below. All in all, the CTX700N is an amazingly affordable, fun,
friendly and comfortable bike that is perfect for everyday rides, weekend
trips, two-up exploring or just about anything else you can dream up.

2014 Honda CTX700ND With DCT and ABS.
Features & Benefits
Sophisticated liquid-cooled SOHC eight-valve 670cc parallel-twin engine
pumps out abundant torque in the low-end and midrange for easily accessible
An 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.
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
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
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. The DCT model also features an Antilock Braking
System (ABS) to provide full antilock functionality for secure braking
- CTX700N features a manual six-speed transmission.
