CTX 1300 arrived today @ Schroaders Honda

Terry Schroader called to inform me they were unpacking 3 CTX 1300s. I believe a red & blue/grey std. And a red deluxe (perhaps). He said with ABS. I thought Deluxe was only way to get : anti lock brakes, self canceling turn signals, traction control, blackened out look. & blue tooth audio.
Anyway they have 3. All available I think. Terry the owner , is usually ready to give a discount off retail. Schroaders is in Hendersonville NC. WNC mountains near Asheville NC.
I have a deposit on a Blue/ grey deluxe, in with their next CTXs on the 8th April. I've found dealers vary on "destination charge". Make sure you ask if you are price shopping. Terry gave me a great price + 350 destination charge. I've bought 3 Honda from them since 1977.
The recent post showing windshield, back rest luggage case, was that for 1300??

Center stand is definitely an option you have to buy extra for the U.S..
In some countries overseas heated grips and center stand and all other Deluxe options are "standard" and they don't get the stripped standard version that we will get.

If you're referring to the pics AT THIS THREAD those are for the CTX1300. (I think I may want the higher screen). Don't know any prices yet and last dealer I ask about them didn't have any information on when available. If you use a currency converter you can see what the dollar equivalent is for what Honda Japan is selling those for but that is no guarantee that we'll be able to buy for the same price. Aside from the value of Yen/Dollar changing all the time there is also likely some transport charges and regional price differences in the mix. As to the ABS, yes the Deluxe is the only model here in the U.S. that comes with that. But I'm sure ABS can be added to the Standard model as well if you (or the dealer) want it just like any other option (like audio BT package, blacked out parts, etc.).

Please see post #5 above.
Unless someone else has confirmation of pricing on options.
