In the 80s, turbos were supposed to be the future of motorcycling. The technology had been around for a little while, but was just starting to trickle into cars and motorcycles. They promised liter bike power in a more compact package, so what’s not to love? Honda’s 1982 CX500 Turbo was one of the flagbearers of the influx of turbo bikes and it was clear there were some issues. While it was impressively fast on boost, it was tricky to control just when that boost happened as they suffered from serious turbo lag. Honda addressed the issue with a bump in displacement, better computer tuning and gearing changes for the 1983 model, now known as the CX650 Turbo.
This is a machine that collectors go nuts for, so expect to see a lot of action on this one. The CX650 Turbo was produced for just one year and they made less than 2,000 of them (rumored production numbers vary from 1500-1800). The seller’s eBay ad leaves a bit to be desired, with just a few words and fewer pictures, but you can check it out here: 1983 Honda CX650 Turbo on eBay. Somehow I think it will sell just fine regardless.
