    Another Newbie.

    Hi all. New to Honda’s, although I did have an old Africa twin some years ago, when they were much cheaper! I am/was a big KTM man, but as I’ve got older I’m needing a tarmac touring bike that’s not as tall as the adventure models. Only just become aware of the Crosstourer I really fancy the v4 engine. Can’t wait to ride my first one! It may be a bit down on horse power compared with what I’m used to, but I’m sure the Honda will make up for it in engine finesse. Just learning about the model range and the fact they are no longer made. dealers still seem to have a few new ones around though. I live in Yorkshire UK. But will use it mainly for 2 up travel abroad. Once the Covid is sorted off course! Cheers all, hope to learn more on here, before parting with funds.

    Hi there and  :400: along to the colleCTive.  :028:
    As a two up tourer the CT is up there with the best.
    Assuming that you haven’t yet purchased one I would strongly recommend that if you get the chance take a test ride on a DCT as well as the manual version of the CT.  :028:

    Hi Dave. Yes I’ve heard great things on the DCT from a couple of A/T owners. I will try one, but I really do enjoy shifting through a conventional g/bag. But you never know?
