Honda CTX700N and CTX700 on sale soon at Southern Honda Powersports

2014 Honda CTX700N and CTX700 on sale at Southern Honda Powersports Chattanooga.
2014 Honda CTX700N and CTX700 will be available soon from Southern Honda Powersports

We at Southern Honda Powersports were pleasantly surprised with the introduction of the Honda CTX700N and CTX700 models and we are really looking forward to hitting the roads around Chattanooga on this bike. Both options take on their own personality. The 2014 CTX700N exudes boulevard cruiser seating position but looks like a modern motorcycle. If you look at the lines on the bike you see an appealing shape that will look just as good downtown Chattanooga as it will downtown Atlanta. The seat height makes the bike VERY accessible to a wide variety of riders.

The brilliance of Honda engineering shines once again in the form of the 2014 CTX™700N. 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 better 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 beneath. 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 CTX700N great for women riders as well as men. This is a true one size fits all bike!

The CTX700 is the next version in the CTX series sporting a full fairing in front of the rider. Some are screaming "DN-01" but if the NC700X and NC700X DCT are any indication, we are in for a MUCH better bike. The DN-01 never had a manual transmission available. It also did not have the DCT transmission. Some would say it was also ugly as sin. The CTX700 is a much better looking, much more modern interpretation of a low seat, feet forward, faired motorcycle. Hard bags are available as well for those that need extra storage. These are similar bags to the excellent setup on the NC700X.

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 power.

- 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.

- 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.
