Well having owned the CT dual clutch for 2 years overall I am very pleased. There are a few things that could be improved ie suspension and brakes. The standard suspension can be improved I think most of us agree.I have fitted a Hyperpro rear shock and front fork springs. The fork springs have made a vast improvement, making the ride more refined. Before fitting them at high speed over a 100mph the front chattered or vibrated badly. Now it is completely cured and the ride between 30 and 70 isn't harsh, its not perfect but 80% there. I was in two minds to replace the rear shock but i am glad I did . I believe the match between front and rear is good and it enabled me to set the ride height for my weight, also the shock is built to your weight and use. the suspension modifications cost around £600 and returned a good result. To get a better result I would probably have to spend double the amount.You have to remember this bike is know light weight. In my opinion the brakes are its weakest point,why sliding calipers? Is it cost cutting,Surely not on a premium Honda. 3 sets of pads to date and the discs a worn out,there is now a vibration through the front and a warranty claim pending
Sounds like I am not pleased but I am very pleased. I came off sports bikes ( Fireblades Ducatis etc ) and i don't expect the CT to handle like them but I knew what I was getting. Its a master of all things and the best bike i have ever ridden in the wet bar none. Allot of that is down to the pilot Road 3s and 4s I've been using. If anyone is thinking of trying them do it they are fantastic.Great handling and good wear ( 4500 rear, 8000 front )
It has been totally reliable, nothing has failed. The finish has been durable , alright the center stand has been peppered with stone and is a bit rusty but that's to be expected. The bike is not pampered it is used in all weathers although if it is salty I will hose it down.
I love the DCT transmission, having tested the manual CT there is know contest DCT every time
OK Honda could have spent a few more yen on suspension and brakes and it would make a big difference
So there you have it my thoughts. Recommended OH YES.
