Aside from the DCT, which is also available in the NC700 series and the VFR1200, the big issue is the super comfortable riding position of the CTX. Honda took a bike that does not look like a cruiser or a touring bike (Goldwing) and made it comfortable. Hopefully it will attract a lot of people who can't afford a Goldwing, and don't like the looks or image of cruisers, but do want to ride in comfort, don't need to take the whole house with them, and don't plan on going to the track. The manual transmission unfaired version is basically a standard.
