Honda’s 1983 V65 Magna hit the street like a 600-pound chrome sledgehammer. Americans had built a long-term relationship with horsepower and high style on four wheels, but a motorcycle with acres of both was news. This was more than a new model. The V65 made big muscle look cool. Thus the power cruiser was born. “The best part of the V65,” according to Cycle magazine’s March 1983 road test, ” is a mid-range punch that would do justice to Larry Holmes.”

The liquid-cooled, 1098cc, 90-degree V-4 Engine: delivered a staggering flow of power from 1500 rpm to its 10,000 rpm redline. But how quick was it? On October 3, 1982, Honda brought drag-strip maestro Jay “Pee-Wee” Gleason and a standard V65 to Southern California’s Orange County International Raceway to find out. Gleason’s 10.92 — second 1/4-mile sprint made the V65 America’s fastest production street machine, inspiring ads with one powerfully simple headline: Bad News Travels Fast.
