• Fewer than 3,000 miles from new

'The CBX was quite simply a marvellous revelation which has genuinely elevated the status of motorcycling. Few people will be able to afford to run one, but then the best is never cheap. Above all, such a motorcycle should not be condemned because it's an excess.' - Bike magazine, December 1978.

Just as it had in the preceding decade with the four-cylinder CB750, Honda stunned the world again in the 1970s, introducing the Gold Wing super-tourer and the outrageous six-cylinder CBX1000. Launched in 1978, the latter was not the first six of the modern era, Benelli's 750 Sei having beaten it by a couple of years, but it was by far the biggest and fastest. Launched in 'naked', twin-shock form, the CBX was revamped for 1981, gaining Pro-Link mono-shock rear suspension, a half fairing, and ventilated front disc brakes. Weighing around 550lbs and with 105bhp on tap, the CBX was good for over 130mph and scorched through the standing quarter-mile in around 12 seconds. For most owners though, it was not the CBX's performance so much as its on-road presence that mattered. Even today, few bikes can match it for charisma, visual appeal and, above all, sound.

This desirable, twin-shock example of Honda's standout classic was acquired in May 2016 from a Czech collector who had purchased it from Bonhams' Las Vegas Sale in 2015 (Lot 305). At that time the CBX was described as having covered 2,500 miles from new (the current odometer reading is 2,757 miles) and that it had undergone only the mildest restoration, which consisted of re-spraying the cylinder head and generator cover, and fitting a very lightly used original Honda exhaust system. Otherwise the machine was said to be factory original. Since decommissioned, this CBX will require re-commissioning to a greater or lesser extent and thus is sold strictly as viewed. Offered with a Czech 'Oldtimer' title. A wonderful example, viewing highly recommended.
