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 particular Pro-Link CBX has been in the current owner's hands for the last year or so and since then has only been run on the occasion of its MoT test. The machine is offered with MoT to January 2021 and a V5C document.
