THE BLACK­BIRD SWOOPED IN

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Our well-con­nected news team had their ears to the ground when it came to new bikes and pre­dicted much about Honda’s Black­bird. Our sources said the bike would be 1137cc (cor­rect) make 164bhp (cor­rect) have linked brakes (also cor­rect) and aim to hit 187mph (it ac­tu­ally went faster – MCN had one do 200mph with a gale-force tail­wind). To­day you can find them for £2000.
