Are you guys as excited about the new Honda CTX700 as I am? I just love the look of the CTX700. the new frame and chassis seems to be little longer than the usual. I think it will be a comfortable bike to ride and cruise with. What do you guys think of the new chassis and frame for the CTX700?

The CTX700's frame is actually based off of the Honda NC700 structure. It is however alter for better purposes of a cruiser. The altered the frame to make it lower for a better riding position and lower to the ground to help with mass centralization. The frame itself was already at its best but from a standard to a cruiser, alterations needed to be made.

I see exactly what your talking about I hardly even noticed this at the show but now that you bring it up I think the differences in height are very minimal. Talkin maybe just a couple of inches.

Are you comparing the height from the ground up? Is that what you mean? I was actually talking about the ride height, this is affected from the overall design. The saddle seat and frame height when you sit on it. "Riding position". Even a couple of inches for seating and riding height might make the difference in the world. the Nc700 is around 32 inches and the CTX700 is 28 inches.
