The CTX1300 is offered in standard trim as well as a Deluxe edition equipped with ABS, traction control, an audio system, auto-cancelling turn signals, and blacked-out paint. The visual resemblance to the CTX700 is strong, with a similar stretched-out fairing and low, pullback bars. Honda doesn't need a crystal ball to know that traditional bagger buyers are not looking to expand their options with futuristic styling. And for the ones seeking a metric alternative to American V-twin baggers, Honda already has that segment covered with the 1300 Custom and Interstate models. According to Honda, the CTX1300 is aimed at step-up cruiser riders, "boomers and aging gen-Xers," and even a handful of mellowing sportbike riders ready to focus on cruising through canyons rather than carving them.
