Like the surprising new Honda CB160. Twin-cylinder, 4 stroke, 161cc beauty. With overhead cam (of course). Twin leading shoe front brake (naturally). And electric starting (man, it’s a Honda!).16.5 bhp at 10,000 spine-tingling revs. Getaway acceleration. Hums along the other side of seventy. Race-bred suspension. Powerful lighting for fast night cruising.
And smooth! – rev the engine with a threepenny bit standing on the petrol tank. That’s precision engineering. That’s reliability. That’s the new Honda CB160. Price: £222.19.0, tax paid. GET A NEW ONE – GET A HONDA.
