Reliable, comfortable, a plodder not a sportscar


Relatively simple maintenance. Oil dipstick in a painful location when putting oil in (1 litre), has a strainer not an oil filter. Reliable plodder, good low gearing in first for cattle, good carrying capacity, good reliability, good lights, steel fuel tank. Overall easy to start, if battery flat, and enough power to have neutral glowing, give it a kick. Don't pull in the clutch when trying to start!!

Average only


Made in South America or Mexico - definitely not Japan. Problems from the start. Cracked head when brand new and was blowing smoke all the time. Now the clutch cable has gone. Hard to start and using the kick start is necessary and difficult. Wish I had spent the extra and got another Kawasaki Stockman 250. Difference in power is significant.
Not the Honda I thought I was getting.

Piece of junk


The bike won't stay together all the bolts keep rattling end it goes too fast for cattle work and the seat is very hard. The back brakes are useless the Speedos stopped working in the first week of owning it in the front wheel bearings don't last as long as my old Yamaha AG bike.

Unreliable but fun




Completed an Enduro Africa in 2007 on one of these beasts with a hundred other guys, they never let us down, serious crashes no problem, completely submerged in rivers no problem, pull em out tip em vertical run the starter and they fire up no problem. This is the gods honest truth maintain them and you will have no problems.How many dual purpose bikes do you know of that have been through the above conditions for thousands of km's and not failed.
Errmmm I wonder!
Whats not to like there bullett proof! easy to maintain, economical, and reasonably priced.
The CTX 200 needs another 50cc.

A do-it-all-to-infinity bike!


Been using it mainly as city commuter with longer weekend trips, trail riding and outback camping. Been riding mine for about 5,0000km. Not the fastest bike but does 100km/h with me (100kg) + some camping gear...prefer to stick around 85km/h though. I cannot imagine this bike not going forever with regular basic maintenance. A simple motor that you can service at home! If it's build to handle the farm and farmers it's gotta be tough!
Bulletproof motor, offroad capability, very economical. In short I like everything about it!
Fuel range. Mine does about 220km with some fuel left "on reserve" (never ran it dry). Aftermarket long range tanks are very expensive, so on longer trips I carry additional 5litre in jerry can on front carrier.

I don't have facilities for maintenance etc and CTX doesn't need any. I'd like another 10kmph at the top speed. I try to ride on secondary roads to get around this. I've never ridden in the dark and hope I don't have to. Fuel range of 150kms hasn't been a problem yet.
I'm now riding my 2nd CTX after finding my last bike (Suzuki Bandit) always gave me a sore back. The CTX carries my camping gear. I've done 3000km on the original tyres and had absolutely no problems yet.
The top speed is sometimes below the speed limit and means I have to "manage" traffic behind me - especially log trucks which are impatient.



very good workhorse that with a little bit of extras b even better!!!! If a chinese kids bike can have discs all round why not a proper work bike? have had mine for 4yrs/10000kms now. would buy another if a 2wheeler was needed.
good ergonomics , good carry racks, good power range for offroad,good seat height,reliable,easy to maintain,looks good, does most of what it sets out to do
brakes desperatly needs rear disc and bigger front,neads poly fuel tank (no dints or rust),neads 6 speed box, 1st is too high for cattle tailing,adjustable rear shock is needed,rear brake footpedal 2 easy to damage,neads a proper tool kit!!!
