    On the Honda Japan manufacturers website the 2019 global models list,  ( ie, all models sold thro' out the world ),  the CT is no longer listed.   :005: :005: :005:

    No surprise really, thought this would be the case. Unfortunatly theres no rumours of a replacement either.

    it's still showing on the Honda Europe website, Perhaps it's just clearing existing stock?

    That might explain the price drop in the UK my local
    Dearler is on the Dearler council said their is no plans to drop
    the CT but with the new emissions not that far away price drop and of Honda world
    list and the cost of getting past the next emission I did find out Honda Uk only have
    50 CT’s in stock at any one time so if each Dearler sold just one it wouldn’t take much
    to clear it’s stock I believe that importers have two years clear any stock that fails to pass the emissions  perhaps my be Honda uk can hold on to the CT a litter bit longer as it would just have the gold wing left standing as tourer not sure about the AT if that’s seen as tourer.

    Without the CT I think for most current customers there’s no Honda alternative at the moment. Solo maybe the AT could be seen as a replacement but two up, full luggage I don’t think it’s really an option ( for me anyway ).  Oddly enough the 30k ‘wing isn’t in the running either.

    Here in the US it is still shown on the Honda site, but then again so is the ST1300 which hasn't been manufactured since I think 2010. Must have a lot of backstock because both bikes can still be had.

    Out of interest how many on here are Uk riders what every
    the number is  Honda really up to loseing that may riders who like or
    Need and prefer large tourers like the CT but don’t fancy the GW and it’s price and the
    AT is short on cc and bhp as well at the moment it’s one long car crash with hondas
    Eyes wide open.
