True or not; there might be a new inline six coming to the Honda lineup and we're all over itThe rumor mill never stops rolling and it's always exciting to see what people think OEMs have in the works. This rumor has history written all over it and we're kind of hoping it has some truth to it. A recently patented design by Honda suggests that the maker is working on a revival of the iconic CBX and that like its ancestor, this new generation will also rock an inline six-cylinder engine.
In 1978, the Honda CBX became the first production Honda equipped with an inline six-cylinder engine. For the four years it graced the market, critics unanimously praised the model, using such strong words as "magic" and "precious" to describe it. The engine itself was considered a masterpiece with its six pipes, 24 valves, minus all the bulkiness you would expect from such a large powerplant. And it was barely wider than the 750's inline four. The bike also featured aluminum and magnesium components. Bottom line, the Honda CBX was one of the most exciting models of its time.
STILL MAKING HISTORY: Prototype 1969 Honda CB750 Breaks Records at Auction It produced a claimed 103 horsepower, an impressive figure at a time when 400cc was still considered big, and its top speed was rated at 140 miles per hour; a monster even by today's standards.
Honda had built the model after lulling itself into a conservative comfort zone, so the fun didn't last and by 1981, the CBX was detuned and tamed. The manufacturer tried rebranding it as a sport-tourer but with Kawasaki and Yamaha catching up on performance with smaller—therefore lighter—engines, it wasn't long before the CBX reached the end of its path in 1982.

The Honda CBX was a sports motorcycle manufactured by Honda from 1978 to 1982. With a 1047cc inline six-cylinder engine producing 105 bhp (78 kW), it was the flagship of the Honda range. The CBX was well-received by the press, but was outsold by its sibling, the Honda CB900F.[10]

As a promotional exercise, CBX bikes were ridden by travelling marshals at the 1979 & 1980 Isle of Man TT.
