My Rocket 3. Should of never bought this. Had it 12hours. Wrecked it. Actually, it wrecked me. Turned me away from Triumph forever.
Tell us more.
I use to have a ST1300 and that group complained about the drop in horsepower and the price was a bit high,Thanks Dill Pickle!
I absolutely LOVE the CTX! I bought it brand new in 2016 at the dealer for $9000 - half the original price. It's a Deluxe with TRAC, ABS, stereo and self canceling signals. The thing is a very subtle rocket and is only a half second slower in the 0-60 than the Valk. It handles beautifully, has Bluetooth and a built in charging port. I never thought I would want another bike. But then I saw the Valkyrie... And I had to have it. I will say, the Valk is a lot heavier and has a much higher center of gravity, so the CTX is a much easier bike to ride. I also like the handgrips on the CTX better - they're kind of rubbery and not quite as thick, so I can get a much better grip on them. And the bars on the CTX come back to you, whereas on athe Valk, you have to reach forward a little, which I don't like (and for that reason, there's more room on the CTX for accessories on the bars). And having that stereo and all the nice features, and storage compartments helps. I have it all accessorized with custom made bag guards, center stand, battery charger pigtail, luggage rack and mirrors on the bars. It is PRISTINE!
I love that bike so much, it is going to KILL me to sell it, but I can't keep all these bikes. One of my neighbors has expressed mild interest, but I'm not sure he has the space for it. The only complaint I have on the CTX is what everyone complains about - the suspension is harsh. But it is a lovely machine and I don't understand why it never sold better. Maybe too expensive at the outset.
