Hi All. I’ll be picking up a CTX 1300, with only 1700klms on the clock, in the next few days following a wonderfully long test ride today. What a pleasurable bike! I’ve traded my XJR1300 for more touring and pillion comfort & tank range. Like many, I didn’t know the model until recently. A hidden gem in Australia. Unexpectedly, it has a personalised registration plate of CTX13.
, I bet your buying the red beast from Brett in Launceston. I saw it on Facebook and it looks nice with the same screen and back rest as I have. It seems a bargain considering the kilometeres . I have had mine for 2+ years and love riding Tassie on it, plenty of torque for overtaking and great comfort. Let us know whare you are from and hope we can meet up some day.

2017 - Honda CTX1300 Deluxe Blue 2014 SN 30 Awesome Power and great comfort (Perfection)
G'Day Twosticks ,, welcome to Honda's unsung hero .... CTX1300.... I am on the mainland and rode with Traversing2 last year and will be back end of Feb 2020 for another 13 days ..
Look forward to having 3 CTX's in the party ... Cheers Russ
Thanks for the welcome all. What a gem of a bike & my Pillion agrees. I can’t stop fussing with that ill-fitting battery cover though. Mine‘s fitted with the tall screen but I wouldn’t mind fitting the shorty that was supplied for our summer. I feel like a little more air in the chest will be nice on 25c+ days. I’m 5’10”. How’s anyone else find the short screen?
