1984 Honda CX650E
The second gear sometimes doesn't kick in very well, and sometimes it falls out of second gear to neutral.
The starter seems to have a hard time turning the engine over.
This motorcycle surprised me to what point it had a lot of torque and acceleration.
Amazing sound when accelerating.
Top speed of 195 kmph.
1/4 mile in 13,6 seconds.
However, the rear tire could of been bigger.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

To the previous entry re: starter motor issues: It is a fault common to the whole series, apparently the stator in the the starter motor is the issue.
The starter is easy to access and cheap to repair. Mine does the same thing, just been too lazy to fix it. One of the only other weaknesses is the cam-chain tensioner.
As most owners will attest however, the CX's are super reliable apart from these issues.
Thoroughly enjoy blatting around on the old beast.
