I know we mostly write about modern adventure bikes and that is for a reason. But there are definitely some beauties out there. Renowned custom bike builder Nick Christian is a big fan of the Munch Mammoth and swears by it but I prefer the sound of the Honda CBX 1050. Even though Nicks says Honda didn’t have their sh*t together at the time, that sound is just, well, better than a F1 car! It comes to stage with an unparalleled symphony that makes necks turn around. Unfortunately it only produces a meager 105HP, which is not much nowadays.
What do you prefer? Decide after watching (and listening) and let me know in the comments!
