Detailed review and pretty non biased - my two cents:
Why do reviewers have trouble categorizing the CTX? As soon as I saw it months ago I felt it was direct competition for a Harley Road Glide or Street Glide. Hence the shorty shield. All day long at 90+ mph doesn't seem to fit this bike or a CTX owner. It looks so good one should show it off by cruising at blvd speed
"Modern Bagger" works.
It's too narrowly focused to call it that. That's a CB500F.
Not sure why the comparison to an ST or FJR. It's a completely different purposed bike, of course the red line will be lower. The author even says later in the article "unnecessary to use the top rev range". Seems most CTX owners fit that type of rider.
A centerstand is valuable on any bike - parking on loose sand, hot pavement, cleaning, just about 100% guarantee against a tipover.
Hoping they can't manufacture them fast enough...cool bike. Waiting for DCT
