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 The first 125cc twins - the C90 tourer and CB90 sports - appeared in 1958 and were swiftly superseded by the C92 and CB92 respectively.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 and sought after of early Japanese classics. For customers keen to go racing or merely wanting more performance for the road, Honda offered a selection of special parts, machines so-equipped being commonly designated 'CYB'. This superbly restored, fully kitted CYB92 has been on display in the CMS offices for over ten years. There are no documents with this Lot.
