Honda CBX

he Honda CBX1000 was introduced in 1978 as the first production motorcycle Honda had produced with an inline six-cylinder engine (earlier they produced a six-cylinder race bike). The twin-cam 24-valve engine produced 105 bhp (78 kW). The model was produced from 1978 to 1982.

Honda switched gears and headed the CBX into the sport touring category, adding a sleek fairing and custom-fitted panniers, besides Pro-Link rear suspension. Honda decided that dual stainless-alloy ventilated front rotors (a first for the motorcycle industry) were needed to stop its 272 kg (600 lb) weight.
