The Honda CBX only lasted five years, but it led to a new wave of sports-oriented motorcycles, and eventually to the Honda ST series. A 6.1 gallon tank was necessary as the 6 individual carbs and monster power led to just low 20’s miles per gallon. Want to learn more?

“The CBX is a mountain road flyer beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.” Cycle Magazine, February 1978
For the last two years of the production run, Honda made the CBX a sport-touring superbike instead of a naked bike, throwing on a fairing and luggage. To help slow down the 6 cylinders and 600 pounds, Honda also added dual ventilated front rotors – a first in the motorcycle industry. This example (VIN: jh2sc0600bc302596) has just 865 miles as it spent 30 years untouched in a warehouse. It comes with a new windshield and Corbin seat, and is ready to go back on the road.
