Re: Comparing the Honda CTX700 automatic with the Burgman 65
The CTX700 I took for a spin had the rear brake lever on the left handlebar, like the Burgman.
European and US legislation must be different regarding this subject.
I disliked the way the transmission "forgot" to change up again after kick-down, like a distracted, unexperienced rider.
I also disliked the complete lack of thought to protecting the rear shock absorber against the spray from the rear tire.
I don't like motorcycles designed like a peacock's tail - to prove that you can afford to disregard all considerations to ease of maintenance.
