I'd love to see a back end shot of the CTX bagger.

+1 on the higher windshield and bags improving the looks. The fairing looks out of place with the short screen and no bags. Added, they give the bike a more touring look and the fairing doesn't appear so long and now fits, at least to me... tomp dd50

The release goes on to state: “These new models introduced today are just the first in a whole new family of CTX products of various displacements and engine configurations that will be rolled out in the future.”

Various displacements and engine configurations !
Perhaps the riders screaming for a new "big" DS bike may finally get their wish?.....only time will reveal.

If we're granting wishes for big new Honda dual-sports, let me specify that it is a VFR1200X that is wished for. Not a CTX-ified version of such.

The Crosstourer is def a nice bike, but that 34 inch seat height would ruin it for me.

Who cares 1L sport bikes being street legal, for 2 people no less, is the biggest joke there is. it's like giving someone a F1 car for under $15K and letting them drive it on the street.

It's the sales of those 1L supersport bikes that allowed the AMA superbike race to happen today. Josh Herrin and Yamaha took first. Hayes destroyed his clutch and went out.

Yamaha, KTM, EBR, Suzuki, et al, were there making the race happen. If they go away, so does SBK, and it would be a shame that insurance companies could cause the elimination of a sport representing our hobby of riding... Just sayin'.
