    At this pace, we'll be communicating by ansible by then ... they'll be "collective thoughts" rather than arcane, sequential posts.

    Really, I think that this is closer to the truth than we realize. Looking closely at the CTX13, it looks (at least to me) like they started with the ST13, stripped off the plastic and then modified it into the CTX13. I do not think that the just took the motor and dropped it into a new bike.

    The CTX13 is a revised ST13 -- with a revised purpose. It may not be meant for the sport tourer, but it maybe was meant for our aging demographic and changing interests.

    The frame isn't much different. The pivot point for the swingarm is the same. The peg mounts have moved (note that they are even using the same footpegs as the ST13). And the steering geometry has changed (front end stretched out a bit).

    You're right, though, it ain't going handle like the ST13. In some ways, that may be a good thing, depending on your orientation. I guess the point is that this A replacement for the ST13, maybe not THE replacement for the ST13 that most people expected.
