After the launch of the famous CB 750 Four in 1969, a bike that revolutionized the motorcycling world, Honda made a comeback in 1978 presenting the CBX 1000.
This new model reaffirmed the identity of the Japanese manufacturer worldwide: despite having a rather classic styling, the new bike is characterized by a sophisticated engine.
