Thank you. I'm thinking the CTX 1300 is my next bike...after I sell the Triumph Bonneville SE. However, I still need a lot more information.

Another Triumph convert!! Welcome to the board, and thanks for posting. But if I have to dance my way through another translated web page, my brain is gonna explode. :eek:

In fairness, the French seem to love taking photos -- this review has no less than 30, none of which are copies of the Honda marketing 'folio so well done!

Those are some nice pics. That looks to me like a brighter, flatter red color than I've seen. Is Europe getting a different red than the US? (Not that I'm complaining -- I much prefer the metallic red!)

Maybe the mirrors are like on the ST series. The mirrors will fold back, but the mirror covers don't. Supposed to be a feature if you drop it on its side where the covers will snap off and the mirrors fold back to minimize damage.

IIRC, the first French review actually mentions that, something along the lines of "It's a bit wide for crowded city traffic due to the mirrors sticking out; but have no fear of damage: the covers unclip easily and the mirrors fold in in case of impact".

Yeah, some of the translations are a bit...odd. And sometimes accidentally comical. :D
