Had to chime in when I see Harley, got 2 of them. Anyway, just purchased 2016 CTX700 DCT (new, 7 miles) in Dallas for 7350.00 OTD, best I could find in Texas. Needed 2nd bike for wife that would fit in toy hauler with HD. U-haul, 4 1/2 hours away, quit an adventure to get. Had to purchase canyon dancer at dealer, no other way to tie down without rubbing something.
Joined forum before purchase to see owner comments. Great forum!
Honda quality, it has repetation as the best. Yesterday at 50 miles on the bike, we were set to go on group ride at HD dealership. We ran into a couple of the problems reported on this forum. KSU, the CTX would not go into drive. Tried everything in manual and online I could find. Called Geico and they had Tow truck set up, 90 min estimate. While waiting looked for fix online (calling Honda service at couple of dealers was waste of time). After about 1 hour tried messing with throttle, read about RPM must be in correct range. She started working, not sure why, throttle? or the auto re-progam you read about?
Did our own little ride, 75 miles on bike, noticed at home the oil under drain tube with gas smell. Will keep eye out to see what this is.
HD - Wife tryed the Heritage softail first, great bike, fun to ride. Too heavy for her for sure, but she wanted to have a HD, hence the trike we now own. No option for light HD, except Street lineup, would not buy these.
I hope the CTX holds together without issue, because we really like it. DCT is great, maybe because I am getting older.
