Honda Six.

Recommended Posts

Just been reading Web Bike World and it would appear that Honda have recently patented a six cylinder cafe racer/race replica, no displacement as yet but the accompanying graphics do look rather nice.

Weather it’s to be built or not is unclear atm

Neither of the road-going Honda 6's ( the inline CBX 1000 and the opposed flat configured Valkyrie) were a great commercial success for Honda, so why would they think that tastes have changed?

Although, I must confess that if they ever made a replica of the Moto Martin CBX, I would be seriously tempted.

The CBX 1000 in the early 80s was a smooth engine and they went well enough, but the six cylinder engine was wide and in the unfaired CBx it was not fantastic aerodynamically, and the four cylinders around at the time GS1000 Z 1000 GS1100e etc were as quick if not quicker.  Honda did 5 and 6 cylinder race bikes as mentioned already these were much smaller than the CBX .
