THE FAN­TAS­TIC PLAS­TIC MAG­GOT

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Honda were fly­ing high with UK sales hit­ting record highs in 1977, but world­wide it needed more ex­cit­ing mod­els. En­ter the rip-snort­ing six-cylin­der CBX1000 and the... er CX500. The 500 got a bit of flak for its odd looks (hence the plas­tic mag­got nick­name) and not in­con­sid­er­able weight, but soon won hearts and minds with its bul­let­proof V-twin mo­tor and shaft drive.
