Honda CX500 Turbo


Brand New


The  CX500 made its debut in 1980 at the IFMA trade show in Cologne,  Germany. The Honda CX500 Turbo, which was released in 1981, was the  world's first turbo-charged motorcycle. Turbocharged engines offered  greater power and torque for higher performance, but also caused a delay  in throttle response during acceleration. The delay in throttle  response presented technical challenges for turbocharged motorcycles.  Honda and IHI (Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries) overcame this  problem by using computerized fuel injection to provide the engine with  the optimal amount of fuel at all times.
