CBX550 (Updated 08/08/08 – cool date eh?)

This bike is a little gem.

Recently tested by Roland Brown and featured in a Classic & Motorcycle Mechanics test (April 2008), it was whisked off by our friends at MCN last week for a “Comparative Technology” test. 25 years of progress. So that’s our CBX550 up against a CBR600RR then!

Not to worry; no racing was involved. I don’t know (yet) exactly what was involved but it was “mentioned” that a run at Bruntingthorpe saw 117mph on the electronic gizmo. Not bad for a 25 year old bike.

As soon as I know the details of any MCN article, I’ll post here.  Watch this space.

UPDATE (8th August 2008)

Just got back from a week in France on my Sprint ST and they’ve published it while I was away. I haven’t even seen it yet…
