There had been nothing quite like the CX500 before its arrival in 1978. Conceived as a middleweight sports-tourer, the CX featured an 80-degree v-twin engine with water-cooling and four valves per cylinder, driving the rear wheels via shaft. A technological tour de force with a somewhat controversial styling. However, the CX500 proved an enormous success, especially due to its combination of performance and economy in a medium-sized package, which was combined with a decent tank range, low-maintenance shaft drive and ease of access for home servicing. So it is not surprising that there is an increasing demand for good examples of what was one of the most individual motorcycles of its day.
This very well looking CX500 is still original and has very few miles on the odometer.
