Honda 5 cylinder 125 gp bike http://world.honda.com/WGP/600wins/bi... Honda's five-cylinder 125 GP bike was one of the most impressive products of the technological war that raged between two-stroke and four-stroke manufacturers throughout much of the 1960s. Honda knew that it had to employ giddily high-revving engines to beat the two-strokes, so it built an across-the-frame 125 five, with tiny 25cc pistons that revved to 21,500rpm. Around the same time Honda had a 50cc twin which also scored World Championship success with its espresso cup-sized pistons. The RC149 was a jewel of a motorcycle and took Swiss rider Luigi Taveri to the 1966 125 world championship.
