:)After having an array of Honda's over 40 years,this is so far the one I like the most,after of course my 2001 GW1800.Sold after it was just too cumbersome for city traffic..Had 93ks on it.(Canadian Eh ).The CTX is just the right size and weight..period
Handling is a dream,had a CBR250 previously and the CTX is as nimble.
Changing oil and filter is easy to get at.
Drove 1500 miles on 3 day trip and didn't get much of a sore butt.Not like a wing but would call it a mini-wing.Great for touring.
I still have trouble getting over that"thumper"feeling as I accelerate.Always have the feeling I am lugging the engine,but that's the design of the motor,its not a 4 or 6 cylinder.
Now the best part is gas mileage....Drove 200km between fill up and it took 4.8 liters to fill.
Now for my US friends thats close to 98 mpg.on an american gallon and about 117mpg for a canadian gallon.
It was a nice summer day taking it easy around 50mph and lots of up and down as I live on Vancouver Island.Thats the best mileage I've had.
Generally I get between 80-90 mpg driving on the highway here at 55-60mph.It's incredible but the gas consumption is almost as good as I got from the CBR250.
Needless to say I am very happy with the CTX.
And as i said to my wife this is the last BIKE!!!

Congratulations! Glad you like it.

Just to help out some of the American members, to keep us from having to look it up; what exactly is a CTX700A?

In the U.S. we have a CTX700N and CTX700ND--naked with manual transmission and regular disk brakes, and dual-clutch /ABS, respectively.

And CTX700 and CTX700D--fairing / grab handle models; manual/regular; dual clutch/ABS; respectively.

My top mpg recorded is 82.1, but that tank was a 100% road trip tank at conservative highway speeds and pure gas. That number could have some error, because I was still experimenting with exactly what level to top up. I'm assuming a 2% trip-meter error that I'm not sure about, because I've yet to borrow a GPS to verify the error, so I've not yet recorded my numbers in Fuelly.

I've run through enough commute-mile tanks now to get a consistent, summer-time avg. with pure gas, and assuming the 2% error. It's 77.6. Cooler temps now so I expect a couple of mpg drop, which would be consistent with the other vehicles I've owned.

CTX700a

In Canada the full fairing model CTX700A comes with standard ABS and clutch we cannot get the automatic version.There is the naked version CTX700N and I believe that ABS is optional on that model..No automatic here.Thats the break-down in Canada.
Base price for fairing model CTX700A was $8999.cdn.And no dealing !!

Jawoskii, welcome to the forum and nice report on your CTX too.

You might be the all time high MPG at those numbers. At those speeds the CTX is really in it's element giving a great ride and mpg.
