The “slurry pump” – not a particularly flattering nickname, you would think. Yet it’s the name affectionately used by German motorcycle enthusiasts when referring to their Honda CX. The story began in 1978 when Honda put a thoroughly modern bike onto the market: It featured an electric starter, a low-maintenance shaft drive – and a water-cooled longitudinal OHV twin engine. Some traditionally-minded bikers considered these modern gimmicks unnecessary and made fun of them, among them comic strip artist Rötger Feldmann who had his hero “Werner” use a Honda CX to pump liquid manure.
The Honda CX series was highly successful and remained in production until 1986. It was available with plenty of variants and a range of engines, from 20 kW (27 hp) all the way up to 75 kW (102 hp) in the CX 650 Turbo. Fitted with its “Comstar” wheels, it was also the first production motorcycle to use tubeless tyres. Not least due to their reliability, the Honda CX was popular not only in its standard shape, but also as a basis for customization, and is fast becoming a cult bike, with owners clubs around the world.
