I live on a dirt road. White is my first color of choice for all my vehicles. There is a reason all work vehicles are white. It shows dust, less than most other colors. Silver is also good. Tan or beige are the best, but not many bike that color around. Yellow would work well too.

I do like that white. But I do have the blue and that'll do. I'd rather ride than clean. Have a friend who has an H and loves to clean and polish. Good for Him! better for Me !!

That's not a new model in that video.
Another video shows the same bike, claiming it's a 2017 or whatever, but the plaque shows its a 2014.

I don't foresee them making a new version.
Being a huge Honda guy for 19 years, you see models come and go. Lots of talk about the crx, as an example of many, coming back for a long time now.

Yeah, they keep some models around like the Accord, Civic, or Goldwing....

I actually don't want to see the ctx1300 come back, as I am interested in what else they may create. If they didn't end models and create new ones, we wouldn't have had a ctx1300 born.

Honda ended the element (thank god) and created an HR-V and those are selling big time.
I can't even test drive them as they are sold before they even arrive.

Maybe they will come out with a xtc1300 lol
With detachable saddlebags, cruise control... Stuff you wish this model had.

Afterall, Honda is known for making super reliable..... Everything!!!!
They make everything from small generators to indycars\F1 to even an jet plane.

Not sure we're I was going, but whatever

Yeah, I had one for a few years.
I just couldn't stand, that people didn't understand, that the back door has to be shut before the front door. "Please shut your door so I can shut mine" was kinda common.

I didn't mean to offend anyone or anything like that. Sorry Jeffz, and anyone else.

I fully agree with you, having owned several black Corvettes, and a Grand National, the last 7 vehicles have been white or silver and I now own a Pearl Yellow GL1800...but I just acquired my CTX13D in black and I know I have my work cut-out for me...
