First off, the engine started smoothly thanks to its electronic fuel injection system. On the road, we enjoyed every twist on the throttle with quick response. The engine reached 43hp @ 6,100 rpm and a torque of 41lb.ft @ 4,200. This capacity is more than enough for a delightful cruise in the highway. The CTX700N has excellent low-to-mid range but hits the rev limiter earlier. Riding on the sixth gear, there is no enough power to roll on nevertheless it delivers seamless operation on the highway at the 60mph cruising speed. We ran through the gears more often and fortunately its six-speed transmission shifts smoothly. The clutch lever is easy and light when pulled too.

Suspension exceptionally absorbed rough pavements with soft feeling at lower speed. It is also expert on tackling twisties encouraging us to lean a little bit. It is also easy to plant both feet on the ground during stoplights. The wide, cushioned and low seat made our entire ride comfortable along with the relaxed seating position.
