I just picked up my red 700D. This is my first big bike. I've been riding a PCX 150 for about a year and I am very glad I waited for the DCT version. It has definitely made my transition a lot simpler. I noticed the Drive mode shifts up a bit early (6th gear at 40 mph). I understand this helps with the fuel economy. The Sport mode holds the gears a bit longer. The Manual mode is definitely the most fun. I rode it 50 miles tonight and I can't seem to wipe the smile off my face. The fairings definitely reduce the wind and road noise. I have the stock short windshield and it keeps the buffeting only to my head. I'm 5'9". Didn't notice it on my arms or chest. I didn't have my face shield on because this summer has been a bit warm here in KC. I need to make a note to put it back on when I ride it on the highway next time. I rode it up to 70 mph and still had lots of room to go. One thing I noticed is the fuel gauge dropped a bit this first day. Not used to seeing that since I get about 107 mpg on my PCX 150. Hope this gets better over time. Well that's all for now. I want to thank all of you who have posted about your CTX's. It has certainly helped me with my decision. Hope this helps someone in return. Peace and ride safe.
