Honda has just revealed the first two members of what the manufacturer announces like a new family of customs. Taking again the mechanics of range NC700, the CTX700N (custom) and CTX700 (tourer) display modern and original lines, turning for once the back with the sempiternal copy of the Harley-Davidson reference.
The twin-cylinder online cooled by water of 670 Cm3 remains unchanged, automatic transmission DCT with double clutch optional and – manufacturing costs oblige – secondary chain understood. The framework of the NC700 was worked over again to still lower the center of gravity and the height of saddle (720 mm). ABS is of series on the two models and a catalog of accessories is already envisaged on US the Honda site.
Honda CTX700 and Honda CTX700N will be available on the US market to spring 2013, with rates going of 6,999 $ for the Honda CTX700N in version mechanical box to 8,799 $ for Honda CTX700 DCT/ABS. Remain to know the prices – certainly contained – and availabilities as of these both new cruisers on the French market.
