Motorbike Mondays

There’s a new hog in town and it’s none other than the Honda CTX1300. Such is its versatility, that the Japanese brand describe the CTX1300 as an ‘entirely new motorcycle species’, part-bagger, part-tourer and perfect for commuting. This new-age motorbike has been making waves since its launch and we’re about to delve into the cruiser’s secrets.

  • Comes in two flavours – the Standard and Deluxe versions
  • Powerful 1261cc engine – perfect for cruising the motorways
  • Available from £14,999

Design

The bold CTX1300 comes in two distinct flavours – the Standard and the Deluxe, with the latter kitted out with extras such as self-cancelling turn signals, traction control and anti-lock brakes. Avaiable in fiery red, clean white or deep black paint finishes, the part-cruiser, part-touring motorbike looks every inch the ‘bagger’. Its aggressive aesthetic comes from its highly-defined steel chassis, fat 200-series tyres and the 10-spoke cast wheels.

The CTX1300’s aerodynamic bodywork reduces wind buffeting and provides extra storage for the longer journeys – there’s also a low-cut windscreen that flawlessly blends in with the CTX1300’s design. Weighing in at 338 kg with fuel, there’s no denying it’s a heavy bike but the weight is held very low, ensuring great handling thanks to its low centre of gravity.

Features

The CTX inspires rider confidence thanks to its inverted fork steering set-up, delivering razor sharp precision. The bike is also equipped with Honda’s Combined Braking System that employs triple-disc brakes to give the CTX plenty of stopping power. The bagger-style cruiser is jam-packed with technology, boasting features like digital ignition and 3D maps – ensuring that you ride in style, wherever you go. Storage compartments with USB ports and weather-resistant lockable saddlebags come as standard, providing enough storage for your gear and allowing you to charge your gadgets on the road.

Performance

The Honda’s rugged power comes from its colossal 1261cc liquid-cooled V-4 engine, featuring a more efficient drive train and providing more than enough power to put a grin on any riders face. Coming with a 5-speed manual transmission, the energetic CTX can reach a top speed of 120 mph, putting out 83 bhp. You can also expect a smoother ride from the new Honda, thanks to clever new counterbalancing reducing engine vibrations.
