1990 Honda CB-1


If I had to own just one, this would be it


This was my track bike and street bike for years, so it spent most of its time bouncing off redline. It developed a tiny head gasket leak (to the environment, not into the oil) around 31k miles. No other faults.

General Comments:

Handling is incredible from the factory, but is much improved with upgraded suspension front and back.

Braking is superb and only gets better with a stainless line up front.

Comfort is sufficient, but seat height is low, so seat to peg distance is small.

Technology is great with gear driven cams and liquid cooling, and the whine from the intakes is sublime.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
