The Google Translator for Firefox plugin did translate the whole page and gave me the same results as Chrome since it is the same translator built into Chrome. I have Chrome on my Nexus 7 tablet so I can compare with Firefox on my Linux laptop at home and my Window$ 7 laptop at work (both with Firefox and the plugin).if you use chrome i believe you can translate the entire page.
The new Honda CTX 1300 is powered by the open longitudinal V4 90 ° Pan European. This large boiler of 1261 cm3 is headed by a yoke 8 valves, has a liquid cooling system and electronic fuel injection intake Honda PGM-FI.Afin strengthen its availability at low and medium revs, Honda changed the valve timing , venturi injection system and exhaust line type 4-by-2-by-2. The response to the throttle opening has also been revised to increase the ratio réactivité.La box was lengthened. A big clearance work with a new catalyst oxygen sensor was also undertaken. In addition, the CTX is characterized by a traction control system TCS, fairly well set up and very reassuring when it rains.
In the end, with a maximum power of 84 hp. (62 kW) at 6000 rev / min and a torque of 10.6 daN.m at 4500 rev / min, the engine of the CTX 1300 was less swift than the Pan European 1300 (118 c. / 87 kW at 8000 rev / min and torque free version daN.m 11.7 to 6500 rev / min).
The handlebars, but found his suave character, a lot of flexibility at low revs, lubricity and excellent elasticity. However, a bump - out on the Pan - is felt in the throttle opening. On our test, we found an average consumption of 7.8 l/100 km, Honda announced 5.8 l/100 km WMTC.
The verdict of the engine test bench
In addition to passing the new Honda CTX 1300 the dyno to check its power and maximum torque, we emerged curves STX 1300 2009. Thus, we can better understand the changes made by Honda engine, in order to adapt to the new genus Custom Touring.
The red curves show the CTX 1300 high linearity with which the V4 provides power, a classic Honda. The couple, it is constant from 3 000 to 5 500 r / min.
Compared to the Pan European, we can see that the cursor has been moved to the bottom and midrange on the Custom Touring, GT providing it the fat of its torque between 4,000 and 7,000 rev / min.
Adaptation to the new genus and remediation of this engine requires, if the red and green curves are almost superimposable, we find that the performance of the CTX are lower and, especially, it decreases much earlier.
