April 15, 2013 - Since its introduction in May 2010 on the VFR1200F, Honda’s unique Dual Clutch Transmission technology for motorcycles has grown steadily in popularity. Over 12,500 customers in Europe have now purchased Dual Clutch Transmission machines.

In 2012, four new models were added to the list of machines offering Dual Clutch Transmission: the Integra*, NC700X, NC700S and Crosstourer.

  • The popular NC700X has seen its monthly percentage of Dual Clutch Transmission customers grow steadily from 10% to 44% from its launch in April 2012 to February 2013.
  • Sales of the Dual Clutch Transmission version of the Crosstourer adventure sports machine have also grown, from 25% to 70% of monthly sales in the year from February 2012 to February 2013.

Today Honda confirms that, the CTX700 and CTX700N will join the ranks of Dual Clutch Transmission machines in the autumn of 2013. Both models will be equipped with the technology as standard, and will be among a number of new models to be shown at the EICMA show in Milan in November.

Unveiled in February at the International Motorcycle Show in Chicago, the semi-faired CTX700 and naked CTX700N have been developed under the concept of “Comfort Touring Experience”.

The machines’ 35kW 670cc inline parallel twin engine offers outstanding low to mid-range torque and fuel economy; its compact size and 62 degree forward tilt provides a low centre of gravity, which, coupled with the feet-forward riding position and 720mm seat height, create a unique combination of comfort and manoeuvrability. Add design cues from the unique GL1800 Gold Wing, and the results are two approachable A2 licence-friendly, affordable machines with a presence entirely of their own.
