The Honda CX series motorcycles were developed and released in the late 1970's with production ending in most markets by the mid 1980's. The design included innovative features and technologies that were uncommon or unused at the time such as liquid cooling, electric-only starting, low-maintenance shaft drive and modular wheels. The electronic ignition system was separate from the rest of the electrical system enabling the motorcycle to be push-started and ridden in case of a total electrical system failure. For the 1983 model year, the engine was increased to 673cc, together with an increase in power. This handsome motorcycle is rare, interesting and in very good condition. With only two previous keepers and owned by the current vendor since 2009, this example has only covered 32,000 miles from new. These 650 turbo Honda's are a delight to ride with a very smooth power delivery. The innovative technology on this machine is to be admired and you have to remind yourself this motorcycle is 33 years old; supplied with a V5C registration document.
