Luigi Taveri and Honda’s incredible five-cylinder 125cc Grand Prix racer: a tribute

"A normal rev limit of 21,500rpm – and another 500rpm still left for the last-lap dash to the line – an eight-speed gearbox and a race weight of 85kg (187lb) mean that the Honda “five” was the absolute limit of motorcycle engineering in 1965."

Good find! I had never heard of the 5 cylinder, although the Honda 6 was very well known. Thanks for posting this.
