I don't think we're going to see a DCT on this bike any time soon. They usually design those hand in hand with the motors -- that is, the drive train is designed with a DCT in mind from the ground up. If it wasn't designed with it, it probably won't get it. At least that's been my experience with Honda. They seem to have salvaged everything they could of the ST's drive train, so much so that they offset the whole thing from the engine back 10mm to the right to accommodate the 200 rear tire. If they do decide to build one of these with a DCT, I would expect it to be an entirely new engine and drive train.Great video - thanks for sharing. Really like the part about the face resembling an Eagle. Hats off to Honda, everything the designer in the video said makes a lot of sense.
Strange that my local dealer has had a Black Standard CTX there for two weeks without selling it, but then again, considering the low quality of their staff it doesn't surprise me.
I was really close to scooping up a CTX700 as my single mount, but couldn't get over the foot-forward ergos. Hoping a CTX is in the works, with DCT, and standard ergos - anyone heard any rumors?
Although the CTX1300 is pricey, (which is subjective for us all of course), I still think it is a good value for the price. Honda's 3.99 APR makes it tempting.Ah yes. I was a bit confused there for a moment. I agree with you that the CTX1300 is pricey but thus is the way of buying new rather than used. This is THE hangup with my wife giving the go-ahead for me. If I was talking the price of the CTX700 she might be inclined to say "whatever" and let it go at that.
