Honda with boxer engine?

I saw an older Honda motorcycle this weekend, that had what looked like a boxer engine on it. Not the V2 that the CBXs had, but a real opposing piston engine. I tried Googling for a while, and sifting through a Honda database, but didn't see the bike. Anyone know what it was? It was really clean, looked showroom.

The engine looks like all the parts would swap with an R50/2. It's not a Goldwing?

No, not a Goldwing. It looked like a twin, and newer than the above pictured bike. In styling, kind of like a CB, but maybe a little older. It did have a seat like the above bike though.

Honda did make an opposed four Gold Wing.


This is a 1975.

So nobody knows of a opposing twin? Maybe it was the Wing, but it seemed like a really small compact bike.

The entire CX series were all V twins. The CBX, to clarify for the OP, was always an inline 6.

Not very obvious where Honda stole the Goldwing idea from; everything behind the gearbox was taken directly from a /5 BMW, including mufflers.
