Built to cruise distance, the CTX1300 brings stunning high-tech performance, contemporary custom style and easy-going nature to the open road. Its heart and soul is the 1,261cc, longitudinally mounted liquid-cooled 90° V4 engine. Tuned to give strong acceleration from low rpm, it makes 106Nm peak torque at just 4,500rpm. It has a relaxed feel at motorway speeds and features a ﬁve-speed gearbox and shaft drive.
The characterful sensation and sound of the V4 beat is ampliﬁed with uneven pipe lengths in the 4-2-2 exhaust system. Honda’s Traction Control System (TCS) maintains consistent rear tyre grip. A steel double cradle split downtube frame provides massive strength and joins 43 mm inverted fork and aluminium swingarm. The rear shock has mechanical spring preload to tailor the ride. Combined ABS (C-ABS) links front and rear brakes giving safe and strong stopping power in all weathers.
