c.1961 Honda 125cc CB92

Honda introduced its first parallel twin - the 250cc C70 - in 1957. Although the crankshaft was of the 360-degree type, the Honda differed from the traditional British twin by virtue of its unitary construction, horizontally split crankcase and chain-driven overhead camshaft. These latter features, together with the pressed-steel spine frame and leading-link front fork - influenced by the contemporary NSU Max - would remain common to Honda twins for many years. The first 125cc twins - the C90 tourer and CB90 sports - appeared in 1958 and were swiftly superseded by the C92 and CB92 respectively. With its aggressive styling, class-leading specification, phenomenal 15bhp power output (at 10,500 revs!) huge - for a 125 - brakes and 250-beating performance, the CB92 proved an outstanding success and today is one of the most desirable of early Japanese classics.
Currently displaying a total of only 1,400 miles on the odometer, this apparently highly original CB92 is offered with a certificate of title.
