The series 6-cylinder engine which can be said the DNA of the Honda 2-wheel alongside a straight 4 and V4 has made the GP racer in the 1960s a founder, and the mechanism which symbolizes the age when the Japan which was a small country in the Far East came to stand at the top of the world. The will to inherit the spirit is alive and well.
Can you see the 6CB of the topic directly?!
It is a series six cylinder CB scooped by this magazine over a year ago. In February 2018, it was found that Honda had applied for registration on in-line 6 bikes in the country.

It was revealed in the magazine's own information network, astonished Honda parallel 6-cylinder plan. It is still a "planning" stage, and it is not a plan that the green light is coming out as a product. Speaking of the six-cylinder Honda, the CBX of the '78 debut of the Year (1000).

The style seems to be finished based on the concept of the neo-classical system in any case though it is thought that an engine stands out with the naked or the cowl.
The charm of 6-cylinder is look and feel exhausted. The CBX year round is a large overhang sideways and was overwhelming to those who looked at the presence of the forward-inclined 24-valve + in-line 6. The force is a story of grass, there are still a lot of fans. And with a high-frequency exhaust notebook like a jet, the ultra smooth and light rotation feel that surpasses even four cylinders can be tasted. These are the good points of inline 6 cylinders.
"But why now it is six cylinders? Although it is speculation of this magazine,
it is nothing other than being a symbol representing Honda"". Currently, only the BMW K1600 series is adopted in series 6-cylinders. However, straight size is the model of the engine that originally called Honda House Art. Its origins date back to the early days of Honda in the 1960s. *From June 2017, Young Machine."
