CTX Deluxe

I put a deposit on a Deluxe over the weekend. I will pick up the week sometime. Had to travel out of state to find the right one. It has no manual. So I will need to order one quickly to learn the basics. (Oil). Accessory I will purchase right away is a center stand and a service manual.

Welcome @Tony Russotto
Good choices on first farkles.
Is this a new one or a previously gently used one?
If it doesn't already have it be sure to check out the Tech Section in the forum in the Appearance & Body sub-forum for the sticky thread on saddlebag guards. You'll want to be sure those are also included in your list... among a growing list of things of course. One constant to owning any bike is that there is always something to make it more and more yours.

This has 10k mileage. In very nice shape. New front tire and original rear tire (based upon date codes). Original battery (yes I will be changing immediately) Installed accessories include rear carrier/backrest, tall windshield. It does not have center stand (yet), or heated grips.

Seller did not know it was a deluxe. Options and VIN decode prove that it is. Good score for me, as I had a deluxe lined up to look at this week.

Thanks for the info on the saddle guard bags. My GL1800 has those. Thanks for the manual. Good reading while I await the motorcycle.

In the USA the quick and easy way to tell if it is a Deluxe is to look at the color of the rocker side panel and wheel rims. If blacked out instead of silver then it is a Deluxe. Only in the USA is this a constant distinction... other than the ABS/TC slotted ring on the wheels on closer inspection. Again, only on the Deluxe. Outside the USA there is only one model that may or may not have blacked out panel and rims, but all of those are the Deluxe models with the addition of heated grips and center stand as the standard configuration from the factory. No one knows why the difference in the USA vs. other countries.

Welcome from another new CTX owner! I've put less than 100 miles on it, but I'm liking it!

Finally took delivery today. What a Beautiful motorcycle! Definitely a Deluxe. Rode 1.25 hours home half highway half backroads. Love the backroads on this bike! Great condition. I don’t know what the right handle grip control does yet, but I have an owners manual and I bought a service manual so I should figure out soon. Only thing missing is a center stand. Going to order that along with LOF and air filter tomorrow. Big smiles from Connecticut!

Congrats on picking up the bike.
What right grip control?
The stock controls on the right side are from top to bottom:
Kill switch (red)
4 way emergency flashers (gray with red triangle)
Starter button (black)

Does your's have additional controls?
Maybe a photo if it does and someone here will know.
