A custom, that resembles Harley, Honda CTX 700 N is thus. Even if many manufacturers and of variations strive to offer more powerful machines, more fun, different or seizing.
One always returns from there to a substitute which corresponds closely or by far to Harley. That does not remove anything with the fact that one can better find at the competition of Milwaukee, but… The style dictates this law.
Honda comes to hustle a little all that with this funny of custom: the Honda CTX 700 N a new concept, that the manufacturer defines by “Honda CTX 700 N is Comfort Technology experiment”. Cocktail of ideas interesting shaken by a strange mixture of the design. Obviously the son of the unfortunate DN-01 and the NC 700 S, although Honda more readily associates it with 1800 Goldwing. Except that here, not of 6 cylinders or framework perimetric out of aluminium. The essence of the frame and the engine comes from roadster NC 700.
So not of twin-cylinder out of V as it is of habit. Online place at one 670 Cm3 with its lunch boxes, its power in orbit of the 50 nags and its lymphatic top-modes. A sober mechanics, far from the skull défrisage, but which takes another dimension on a custom. While comparing with it, one realizes that the twin is more powerful than that of Shadow 750, with values of couple not so distant. Characteristic of this engine: Honda CTX 700 N quasi horizontal establishment makes it possible to release much space to the top and to accommodate a trunk in the false tank, alas too small to contain a helmet.
As for the NC 700 and the VFR 1200, the Honda CTX 700 N could be equipped in option with limps robotized DCT, with double clutch and automatic or sequential management of the reports.
Pas de mystery either with dimensions part-cycle, largely taken again Honda CTX 700 N. The framework with the tubular steel profile has right summer somewhat altered to lower the height of saddle (720 mm) and to increase the footing. A difference between the wheels of 1529 mm, is only 4 mm more than the NC-S. However, it seems much longer than that; magic of the forms and the style. Braking is summarized at least necessary, a disc by wheel, but valiantly assisted by the reinforcement of ABS in series.
Honda CTX 700 N plays thoroughly the card of the security with this frame: anti-locking, very low centre of gravity, stability. And to conquer the public, a remarkable comfort, a delicate control and a handiness of foreground. Especially, thanks to the economies of scale and the taking away of bodies on the series of the NC (tallies, driving, headlight, fork, brakes, etc), the Honda CTX 700 N is displayed with only 6,999 dollars in States, that is to say roughly 5,400 of our euros. Its arrival in France? To confirm, but not for immediately.
