Honda had the concept back in the 80's called it a CBX
in a different format cruiser style.

I was just reading an article about those three old school sixes...a Benelli 900, KZ1300, and the CBX. My friend has a CBX in his garage waiting to be restored. Old school standards are cool.

Back in the days the Benelli, KZ 1300 or the CBX were my dream bikes, just couldn't afford any one of them :dontknow:

It doesn't matter, I got my 10 now :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

That says it best, Seems kinda funny that bikers that look for the highest rated liter Race replica, suddenly forget why they are the highest rated. The honing of the chassis and engine and weight centralization and how flex in the frame has to be just so, not too much not too little and in what direction, and Geometry that hides the weight and doesn't make the bike stand up or fall over. Stacking the transmission shafts to compress the space and further compress the weight centralization, and allow a longer swing arm for added stability.

Then a 6 cylinder BMW comes out of the wood work and without even any testing impressions... gets a standing ovation...:crackup:
