The two scooter-cruiser hybrids, unveiled in Chicago and aimed, primarily, at the American market, are dubbed the CTX700 and CTX700N – with CTX derived, Honda say, from 'Comfort, Technology and eXperience' while thew...

The DN01 looked ace! Just a shame it was a dullsville engine underneath and cost more than an elephant made of gold.

Pants

Pile of boring bike that won't sale here, ZERO presence. un-inspiring, weak, nauseious, makes me feel sick to think this is an offering from my fav manufacturer. WAKE UP HONDA.

Vanandy...

With the utmost respect I think you are missing the point... Honda have moved the goal posts here, they are stepping into unknown territory and thinking beyond the "Race Rep" "Sports Tourer" ,"Every day user", "practicle", "mass appeal" Market capturing, Bikes of the past..... and giving the world ermmm ....."SHIT LIKE THIS".

Very slightly better than the DN-01, but that wouldn't be difficul.  And how spindly looking is that front disc brake? One for the Yanks but don't think it will catch on here. And thats putting it politely. Ride it with a tinted visor, then no-one will recognise you!

Eh?

"NC700 V-twin"

Shurely shome mishtake...?

The NC is a parallel twin, it's half a Honda Jazz car engine.

If this new bike has the NC engine the yanks will love it because that motor has all the refinement of a vintage tractor.
