The CMX is a progressive new custom bobber that fuses tradition with ground breaking new ideas and perspectives while offering ample scope for owner customization.

A fresh take on custom cool, the CMX mixes old- and new-school style and is engaging and fun to ride, with an outlook geared toward firing the imagination of a younger generation of riders. The latest in the Honda ‘CM’ lineage which included the CM400A made famous by the late, great Prince in the movie Purple Rain.

The new CMX is simple and raw but don’t let the minimalistic design fool you; it is a Honda after all and every tiny detail matters.

The low, lean silhouette is crowned by an iconic fuel tank, aggressively raked front end and fat 16 inch tyres on large-diameter wheels. The stamped-steel rear fender and narrow frame body result in a stripped form expressing offbeat individuality from every angle.

The evocative round headlight sits up high in a die-cast aluminium mount, the speedometer is a compact dial with negative LCD display and blue backlight. The ignition is housed below the left side of the fuel tank and everything that can be is blacked out.

When creating the ultimate street bobber, the sound of the engine cannot be overlooked. Tuned gearing emphasizes the mechanical sound of the engine even at idle and the internal muffler structure has been thoroughly tuned to further emphasize the pulse and feel of the engine.

Available in Australia in Matte Armoured Silver Metallic, Victory Red and Graphite Black, the CMX is a fresh reference to timeless motorcycle styling.
