I had one. That one is in GREAT shape and mine was close to that. A very comfortable bike although a bit top heavy. Not real fast but zoomy & fun. In normal honda fashion, the fit & finish was real good, a bit better than my Kawasakis.
A twin it was - when you rev it the bike rocks back & forth.
I also had the cx650 Turbo which they made a year later in '83. The more I got into the factory turbos, the more I became a speed freak & eventually focused solely on the gpz's as the list of performance mods available for those is extensive where the Hondas have none.

brings back good memories. I feel all warm & fuzzy inside now.

Kawi slapped a gauge cluster on top of the triple tree then made a fairing.
Honda integrated their gauges into the fairing with a clock too. It was well designed. The cx's had stator problems though - needed replacing every few years & they weren't cheap.

Then and now, those CX's looked like "Future Bike"

Talk about futuristic....I also had the Seca Turbo:



The only one I did not have, although I really like the styling, was the Suzuki XN85: clean examples of these
are few & far between.
