Congratulations! I took the CT for a ride on a demo. It didn't seem to have the 'soul' I had expected. I love the Honda V4 motor but it seemed a bit dull and lifeless, although the bike went like the wind when you really rode it.


I think you'll see and feel a bit of the Varadero in your AT. If you look at the overall styling there are some not so subtle hints back to the Varadero.


Have fun riding!

I must admit I felt the same way when I started riding my AT.  It felt in many ways like I had returned back to the Vara but with many improvements!.. and of course my Vara was blue and my AT is red! ;)
