I'll be honest. I forgot about Honda's CTX700. Basically the cruiser version of Honda's ultra-commuter NC700X, the CTX700 faded from my memory banks. Maybe because it was underwhelming, maybe because it's about as vanilla as they come, or maybe because it's just plain ugly, the CTX700 failed to leave a lasting impression (the NC700X is a different story. I actually like it. But that's for another time).
Just in time for the EICMA show in Milan, Honda has officially revealed the 2014 CTX1300 to the world press, and it looks exactly like the spy photos we posted on October 21st. While a bit of the surprise has been spoiled, the increased anticipation that has built around the CTX should offset any corporate disappointment from the snafu. Now, with official Honda documents in hand, we can tell you all you need to know about the CTX1300.
