Honda CX650T Turbo

Honda CX650 Turbo sport-tourist bike was introduced in late 1982 as the successor to the Honda CX500 Turbo. The model was focused mainly on the North American market (out of the total number of motorcycles produced in the amount of 1777 units, 1200 units were sold in the USA and Canada).

Turbocharged competitors:

Almost indistinguishable from the Honda CX500 Turbo externally, the new CX650 Turbo model received several significant technical differences:

  • Plastic. Instead of expensive GPR (fiberglass) plastic, the model is equipped with cheaper ABS plastic.
  • Engine. Increased its volume (496 → 674 cm³), increased the compression ratio (7.2 → 7.8), reduced the turbocharging, which made the engine performance smoother.
  • Injector. The fuel injection control system has been significantly revised.
  • Rear suspension. Received additional manual rebound adjustment.
  • Transmission. The main and final gear ratios have changed.

Otherwise, the model Honda CX650 Turbo was practically no different from the previous version - Honda CX500 Turbo.

Among the features of the model, one can single out a steel frame, pneumatic adjustable suspensions (the front fork has an anti-bite system TRAC - Torque Reactive Anti-dive Control), disc brakes, a 20 liter fuel tank, a 5-speed gearbox and 256 kg of curb weight.

1983 was the first and last year of production of the model, after which it left the market and did not receive further development. Despite the unique, at that time, technologies, motorcycles were in very weak demand due to the high cost and increased insurance premiums.
