JMR Customs’ Honda CX 500
While this is a bike with many styling touches, the key to everything is the exhaust. Take a very close look and you’ll see that the exhaust from each side wraps inward and joins into a single tailpipe behind the seat. Aside from being cool and unique, that meant basically the entire electronics system had to be relocated to the bottom of the bike, since you don’t want an acid-filled battery sitting right next to searing hot metal. H/T: Pipeburn.
Aaron Miller is the Rides editor for Supercompressor. He likes all these bikes, but if he had to pick, the Renard guys won him over when they said their bike sounds like an E30.
