Motorcycle News - Toto Green – Honda CBX550
During the sports bike boom of the 1980s Japanese motorcycle manufacturers were in their prime. In 1982 Honda released a new addition to their middleweight sports category, the CBX550. Powered by their latest DOHC inline 4 the CBX was in many ways the successor of Honda’s much loved CB 400 Four. The snaking 4-into-2 exhaust is the biggest giveaway, but that’s where the similarities ended. Styling was all eighties with a Bol d’Or inspired paint scheme and Honda’s iconic ComStar wheels. As was the case in the 80s manufacturers also added “groundbreaking” technology to their new models, and the CBX was no exception.
