Once you’re underway, you’d swear the CTX is a whole lot lighter than its claimed 732-pound wet weight. Credit some of that to the low seat, some to Honda having put most of the 5.1-gallon gas tank’s volume beneath that seat, but most to the V-4’s fore/aft crankshaft orientation. That allows a narrow crankcase that lets the heavy engine sit low enough to net a low center of gravity. The wheelbase is long (64.7 inches) and the steering geometry not especially quick (28.1 degrees, 4.6 inches of trail), yet the 1300 turns eagerly, helped by leverage provided by its wide, swept-back handlebar.

All of this makes for an easy-to-ride, non-intimidating large motorcycle, a wonderful quality further enhanced by the engine’s outstanding power delivery. The dohc V-4 is based on that of Honda’s discontinued ST1300 sport-tourer but extensively retuned for added bottom-end and midrange grunt, and for a deeper, more aggressive exhaust note.

From just above idle all the way past the 6,900-rpm redline to the 8000-rpm rev limiter, the engine streams stout, ceaseless torque. It pulls steadily from as low as 1,800 rpm and accelerates the CTX with authority at practically any road speed without a downshift. It’s an impressive show of torque that often makes shifting through the five-speed gearbox seem like a waste of time. Dual counterbalancers allow the engine to be as smooth as silk all through the rpm range.
