FS: 2014 Honda CTX700N – JH2RC6809EK000068 – only 3,485 miles – $3899.00

This bike is like new condition, one local owner, dealer maintained and in excellent shape!  Customer added Honda hard case luggage, Honda rear rack, Honda center stand kit out of Europe, windshield and Oxford heated grips.  It is set up and ready to go see the sights, and it is so easy to ride this bike!  6 speed, not the automatic, no flaws, no stories to tell.

Here is what the press had to say about this bike:

If you’re an experienced motorcycle enthusiast, you’ve probably pigeonholed these new Honda CTXs as just beginner’s bikes and are about turn the page. Not so fast. That’s what any number of us old-timers thought when the NC700X/DCT was introduced, too. After testing it thoroughly (Rider, November 2012), we found the NC to be a surprisingly versatile mid-sized adventure bike at a bargain price. Now we have its street-only counterparts in the naked CTX700N and fairing-equipped CTX700, the first of what Honda says will be a series of CTX machines, and calling them just entry-level bikes is an oversimplification as well. They share the NC700X’s efficient liquid-cooled, 670cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, chassis and running gear.

The idea behind the CTXs is to introduce new riders to motorcycling and bring back former ones, who these days care more about comfort, fuel efficiency and fun than maximum power. They’re also meant to appeal to experienced riders who are seeking some practical everyday transportation for themselves or a mate. At just 28.3 inches, their seats are accessibly low and their cruiserish forward-mounted footpegs and high, wide beach-style handlebars have a relaxed feel. Canting the engine forward 62 degrees helps give them a low center of gravity for better handling, and the available DCT eliminates the potential showstopper of having to shift gears for a new rider, who may never have even done so in a car. Toss in nimble handling, great brakes and low weight, and you have a blend of cruiser and sporty handling that’s all about Comfort, Technology and the riding eXperience—CTX.

Rolling from stoplight-to-stoplight or down the highway, the staggered, counterbalanced power pulses of the engine give it a nice loping feel without excessive vibration, and it makes more-than-adequate power for a solo rider. Add a heavy load or two good-sized riders and brisk passes do require some forethought and a downshift or two. Overall, if you’re not in a huge hurry, for touring solo or slicing through city traffic the CTX is certainly up to the task. And our test bike with manual transmission delivered 61.5 mpg average, very close to Honda’s claim of 64 mpg.
