I just found another one:

2014 Honda CTX1300 Deluxe | First Ride Review - Ultimate MotorCycling

A few quotes:

Buyers of the standard CTX1300 will always be reminded of their frugal decision, thanks to functionless buttons on the “gas tank” (the fuel tank is actually under the seat) and faux grilles for the non-existent audio speakers.

Braking on the CTX1300 Deluxe is outstanding – not it its power, but in its controllability and ease of use. It has ABS, but the Combined Braking System makes it unnecessary in the dry. I pushed extremely hard on the brake pedal and could not get the ABS to activate. The big CTX just slows down predictably, reliably, and controllably.

So, if you’re wondering if the Deluxe version is for you, that depends. If you ride in fair weather and don’t listen to music, you can take a pass. But, if wet conditions are typical for you, and you like to enjoy music while you ride, go Deluxe.

Not a bad review. They generally like the bike, especially for less experienced riders. You know, like us. ;)
