Just when it seemed that Honda had decided all its future medium/large sports bikes would be V4-powered, along came the CBX750: a conventional across-the-frame four that looked every inch the typical 'Universal Japanese Motorcycle'. It was as if, having invented the modern motorcycle in the shape of the original CB750 of 1968, Honda just didn't have the heart to kill the concept off. Introduced in 1984, the CBX750 was powered by a 16-valve air-cooled engine with six-speed gearbox, which was carried in conventional tubular steel frame. Running gear was typical Honda of the period: air-assisted front fork with TRAC anti-dive; Pro-Link rear suspension; triple disc brakes; and 16" front/18" rear Comstar wheels. Hydraulic tappets, a slipper clutch, and a twin-headlamp cockpit fairing were unusual features at that time. With a claimed maximum of 92bhp (nearer 80 at the rear wheel) the CBX was good enough for a top speed approaching 140mph.

This example was purchased by the current vendor in 1989. Currently displaying a total of 14,642 miles on the odometer, the machine carries a tax disc that expired in May 1995, which almost certainly is when it was last used on the road. Noteworthy features include a Micron 4-into-1 exhaust system and a tank cover. The machine is presented in seemingly very good cosmetic condition, though its mechanical condition remains unknown. Sold strictly as viewed, it is offered with an old-style V5 registration document and two expired MoTs from the 1990s.
