    Anyone who knows if there is a new or at least an update of the crosstour. Because we must admit that today's model is out of date

    Not sure what you mean by "out of date".....! As the CT has never been endowed with all the latest - and in most cases unnecessary - electronic frippery.

    We (I) think Out of date is the current future!
    Look at all the remade classics/retro bikes, sramblers and cafe racers :169:

    What I mean by "out of date" is exactly what you say unnecessary electronic frippery example led light so you see the way in the dark, crusecontrol, etc. Then it would not be entirely wrong with a modern disign. But all this will surely come soon. I had a stone age machine goldwing F6B 2014 model until 2016 when I switched to 1200X 2016. Now, Honda comes with a new Gold Wing with all
    unnecessary - electronic frippery you may want. I hope we will see a lot of this in the next generation of 1200X. It will always be better, it was not better before I can promise. :152:

    I would trade my 2012 CT tomorrow for a new one if it had a reverse gear. The bike is too heavy. Touring with me, the wife and luggage is very difficult especially when you need to get the bike out of a parking spot. Even getting the CT out of the garage is a nightmare. Just imagine guys, you sit on the bike flick it into reverse gear and back her out with ease. Trust me this is what all heavy adventure bikes need. We should start a petition lol

    I agree, Honda have the tech' to do this as per the Goldwing, the new G/W has selectable forward and backward walking speed capability which is about 1-2 mph, fantastic.
