I took one for team HONDA~
Well, if most haven't figured out by now, I'm NOT a fan of Honda do to their VERY poor decisions. With that said, I took a new (2 year old left stock) bike home tonight. They only got me by class/es I am interested in and only by a great deal! When I first inquired, It was reasonable, but nothing for me to talk about. I was not impressed to say the least! After some time in thought, I decided to say forget it, I didn't need it anyway nor was I crazy about Honda's to begin with, the only reason I looked to begin with was the first 6k mark down. I was about to walk out and then they got personal, they came around, they wanted a sale today and went down another $1200. What then could I do? It isn't a CTX, but it is a Honda, for you Honda diehards.
2017 VFR1200X in Honda Berry (puke color)I may or may not change it later, too early to determine.
A quick blunt observation from my 125 mile ride home: It's peppy, throttle finicky, low tech, light weight, medium gas guzzler, cool-running, has firm seating and is smooth rolling.
BTW, they did have a new naked 14' CTX for $3,995, reasonable. About a month ago I checked the dealer where I had got my CTX, they have 2 14's with $8,900 price tags, no joke, crooks and dumbasez everywhere!
