Honda's 360 degree V4 as in the ST1100 or ST1300 is a great road engine. Creamy torque and only character vibes. No I4 buzz or V twin coarseness, ever, from idle to 9250 rpm where the rev limiter comes in. In the 1300 the dual counter balancers and geared alternator all turning opposite from the crankshaft cancel any torque reaction when the engine is revved. Bullet proof with many examples over 200 or 300,000 miles.

Sorry for the thread hijack. The Honda 500s are going to revive the class.
Triumph Tiger 800
Honda ST1300
Honda CH80
