1982 Honda CX500 Turbo
Frame no. JH2PC0307CM001006
Engine no. JH2PC0307CM001006
The CX500 Turbo came with digital electronic fuel injection and ignition; tangentially spoked Comstar wheels; Pro-Link rear suspension; twin-pot brake calipers; an integrated tank and fairing; and a comprehensively equipped cockpit dashboard. Of course, once Honda had bolted a turbocharger to one of its motorcycles, the rest of the Japanese 'Big Four' had no option but to join it on the 'Turbo' bandwagon.

Making about 80 horsepower, the CX500 Turbo was fast for a 500, but it was no back-road scratcher. The turbo lag and the bike's weight and semi-heavy steering made it more of a sport tourer and backroad cruiser, where its superb fairing, ergonomics and smoothness proved superb. That, plus its beautiful curves, paint, and fit and finish, made it big news, the bike only lasted two years (it became a 650 the following year).

This particular machine is a superb example, with c.18,924 miles on the odometer. It is an amazing snapshot in motorcycle history, a real-steel-aluminum-rubber-plastic example of the excitement of the early 1980s. Things will never be the same but owning this Honda Turbo can certainly bring you back!
