Overall Review

The CTX 200 Bushlander (actually 197cc) is what it looks like. A motorcycle developed for farmers or anyone who works on the land. Having said that it's a go anywhere bike that is quite capable of green laning, gravel road touring or riding around the deserts of Morocco. As a daily commuter it's reliable, easy to throw about and dead cheap on petrol. Though I'd change to road tyres if commuting is what the bike will mainly be used for. Honda got pretty much everything right with the little CTX, which is why it's been around for so many years.

Strengths

Lightweight, goes anywhere, carries a ton of gear plus the sheep dog. Takes loads of abuse and needs little in the way of maintenance. The Bushlander has been a fave with Aussie farmers for a couple of decades. Not the fastest bike in the world but no ones buys a Bushlander because they want be quick off road. It's a workhorse, plain and simple. Changing up one tooth on the front sprockett will allow it to cruise along nicely at 90 to 100 KPH, depending how much the rider weighs and how much gear is on board. If you're not worried about speed a Bushlander is quite capable as a dirt tourer.

Weaknesses

Too small to take a passenger on for any length of time. Slow if you're used to 250cc plus bikes. No wind protection.
