Pulled from world.honda CTX1300 page..

As a feature unique to the CTX1300, a traction beam that effectively transmits the engine's inertial force to the rear tire is set independently of the main frame, to bring out the most in the delightful throbbing feel of a V4.
This setup is very effective in enhancing the fun of operating the CTX1300, on top of its excellent controllability and stability.

reads like it's like a bar that is attached to the engine but not the frame and runs to the swing arm to pass on some of that "throbbing feel" (vibration?) to the rear??? Going for that cruiser experience a la HD? :(

I don't want any throbbing in my rear.

I want smooth, quiet, and reliable.

That article looks like it was translated into English by a machine.

yeah, I have a feeling we'll be missing that vibration "throbbing"... or actually NOT, on this CTX. Honda just doesn't do that with this engine. So maybe there's some other "throbbing" they have in mind :eek:

I agree completely. A nice engine sound is one thing, but one main reason I stick with Honda bikes is the lack of vibration that makes my hands numb! I hope this is not some stupid "feature" that will make the bike less pleasant to ride. The "C" stands for "comfort", after all!

It's a tractor beam for scooping up parts that fall off the Harley's!!! :p

Now that I think about it, this really wasn't well thought out since we'd most likely be way out in front of them anyway.

its perfectly thought out. it'll scoop up the parts as you're passing. you know the ones that will inevitable fall off as they push their poor little bikes to the limits trying to stay in front of you.

Yeah, but who wants a bunch of old Harley parts anyway? Though I suppose, from all of the complaining I hear about how expensive the parts are, you could make a tidy profit selling the parts back to them! :D

Ya!! But if ya hit one of those parts that fell off the machine in front of ya,you too could end up on the road right along side those parts.lol lol And it's really not funny when ya stop and think about it. However,I have had an occassion or two where parts have actually fallen off the machine in front of me and remember scrambling so as NOT to run over em cause I don't wanna end up on the road laying next to em with a bunch of parts from my bike.lol I think the make of the bikes were either, Henry Donaldson,Harvey Dickenson,or somethin like that. lol lol lol Dave!!!

exactly. you blow past the harley rider, wait for him at the next light, and then sell his parts back to him, with a finders fee and service charge or course.
