Grey Eminence | Honda CX 500

Honda CX 500 01

Grey Eminence – a name that’s come about because of its colour, but also from its character. The front part of the Honda with the leads, tank and rear frame arc is painted in metal grey, the rest in black. The black colour was also used to hide a relatively large engine and thus the silver parts stand out.
