2017 Honda CTX700 DCT Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Price

2017 Honda CTX700 DCT

For 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.
