Honda CTX1300 (2014 onwards)

The Honda CTX1300 is a mixture of three different styles of motorcycles. It is a large-capacity cruiser suitable for touring that looks a little bit like a scooter. It doesn’t really fall into one specific category and if you are not into this kind of design, the styling might turn you off.

The motorcycle is equipped with a V4 engine that is smooth and reliable, but it doesn’t have a lot of character. It comes with a combined ABS and traction control as standard, which is a big plus. Additionally, you will also find an audio system in this bike.
