I like my wife's TX 700, but it is too small for me. If this CTX 1300 handles like my wife's CTX 700 and has that 1300 power plant, I am in.I think Honda has taken a very smart approach. The have created many entry level bikes such as the CTX700 and created path to their more expensive platforms. The CTX1300 price will be far greater than the current 700 based in the technology and components. The question is whether it will be affordable enough. The ST1300 priced itself out of reality in comparison to its competitors. With that said if Honda could keep the CTX1300 under $13,000 with ABS and 6 speed I would be seriously interested, it will be interesting.
