As part of the overhaul process, the motorcycle was treated to a new AC generator, modern spark plugs, and replacement oil cooler lines. Its valve cover gasket, grommets, and both sprockets have all been swapped with fresher items, while the two-up saddle was reupholstered in black vinyl.
Kenda’s RetroActiv rubber embraces the sport-tourer's Comstar wheels at both ends, and the brakes feature youthful hoses, calipers, and master cylinders. In addition, the CBX saw its air-adjustable forks rebuilt using new tubes and seals, subsequently receiving a carb makeover and valve adjustment to round everything out.
Powering Honda’s relic is a beastly 1,047cc inline-six mill with 28 mm (1.1-inch) Keihin inhalers and 24 valves actuated by dual overhead cams. This air-cooled juggernaut has 98 ponies and 63 pound-feet (85 Nm) of crank-measured twist to play with, spinning the rear 18-inch hoop via a five-speed gearbox and a chain final drive.
When it makes contact with the asphalt, the engine’s force enables its bearer to hit 60 mph (96 kph) from a standstill in 4.6 seconds. Top speed is generously rated at 135 mph (217 kph), while stopping power originates from ventilated 276 mm (10.9-inch) discs up front and a 296 mm (11.7-inch) module out back.
