2017 Honda CTX700 DCT Features and Benefits

  • CTX700D

The open road has never looked more inviting than when you're rolling along on the Honda CTX™700 DCT. Made for travel with an efficient fairing and windscreen up front, it boasts features that make it an ideal partner for exploring all that the open road can offer. It starts with great rider accommodations, thanks in large part to a comfortable seat that's only 28.3 inches high—a handy aid around town. Then there's the powerful, smooth-running 670cc engine with its twin cylinders canted 62 degrees forward for better weight distribution and a lower center of gravity for nimble handling. There's also an easy-to-use automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), which allows riders to instantly choose between a fully automatic mode or the option of more active gear selection via paddle-shift buttons on the handlebar. Better yet, the CTX700 DCT also comes equipped with an Antilock Braking System (ABS). With its broad power curve, light and nimble handling, roomy riding accommodations and smooth engine, the CTX700 DCT excels at long-range travel, but these qualities also make it a terrific weekend warrior or daily rider.


  • Sophisticated liquid-cooled SOHC eight-valve 670cc parallel-twin engine pumps out abundant torque in the low-end and midrange for easily accessible power.
  • An impressively broad torque curve gives the CTX700 a remarkably linear and smooth power delivery.
  • A relatively long engine stroke (80.0mm combined with a 73.0mm bore) and a high-inertia crankshaft are design elements that add to the CTX700's extremely tractable power characteristics.
  • Second-generation automatic six-speed Honda Dual Clutch Transmission that uses two hydraulically controlled clutches to deliver quick and smooth gear changes in a choice of three modes: Manual (MT), which allows the rider to shift gears using buttons, and two automatic (AT) modes—S for sport riding and D for everyday use.
  • The 62-degree forward lean given to the cylinder assembly facilitates near-vertical mounting of the single 36mm throttle body for superior intake port positioning and shaping. In addition, special shaping to the combustion chambers further enhance engine combustion efficiency for clean burning and optimal power production.
  • An engine balancer shaft quells vibration for smooth, comfortable operation, and rubber-mounted footrests also add to rider comfort.
  • Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) continuously monitors numerous variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture for existing riding and atmospheric conditions, thereby delivering optimal performance and remarkably crisp throttle response over a wide range of operating conditions.
  • Antilock Braking System (ABS) to provide full antilock functionality for secure braking action.


  • Upper fairing and windscreen divert wind around the rider, adding to comfort and reducing fatigue.
  • Fuel capacity of 3.27 gallons and great fuel efficiency gives the CTX700 DCT a long cruising range.
  • A rigid and compact diamond-shape steel frame, low center of gravity and plush suspension help make the CTX700 DCT responsive, agile and enjoyable over the long haul.
  • Stout 41mm fork provides 4.2 inches of travel, while the Pro-Link® rear suspension system delivers 4.3 inches of wheel travel.
  • A remarkably low seat height of 28.3 inches helps instill rider confidence.
  • Open, roomy ergonomics position the rider in a well-balanced seating position for all-day comfort.
