The CTX1300 succeeded the ST1300, (also called the "Pan-European" in Europe), which was discontinued after the 2012 model year. In November 2013, following deletion of the ST1300 model, Honda announced the CTX1300, which was powered by a version of the ST1300's engine modified for better fuel economy and increased torque at low RPMs.
Although well-received in the US, European reviews of the CTX were less warm. The UK journal Motor Cycle News declared: "It’s easy to ride and manageable for such a big, heavy bike. At 338 kg it's not light, but it carries its weight low and feels easy to manoeuvre. The motor is so quiet it's sometimes hard to tell if the bike is running.The Honda CTX's styling is unconventional and brave but it isn't a serious cruiser. It does everything well, but lacks character and soul and doesn't feel very special. It’s good in so many ways but just a little bland and dull."
