2017 Honda CTX700 DCT

2017 Honda CTX700 DCT Buyer's Guide | Specs & PriceFor riders who do not need a large-capacity motorcycle to tour the country or commute to work, and like the convenience of an automatic transmission, the Honda CTX700 DCT stands alone.

The low-revving motor is a perfect match to the two-mode (sport and standard) automatic shifting the nearly seamless six-speed dual clutch transmission. Riders who prefer to have some control over the shifting can use the manual mode, which uses your left finger and thumb for gear changes—there is no clutch lever.

While it has a 670cc engine, it has the power to take you up to highway speeds for as far as you want to ride. Handling is light and easy on the neo-cruiser, yet it remains stable for those who want to add Honda Genuine Accessories saddlebags.

The 2017 Honda CTX700 DCT is a comfortable ride that is easy for the newest rider to operate, yet still fun for the experienced rider who wants a handy ride.
