The transmission in the Honda CX and GL V-twins rotates in the opposite direction to the crankshaft. This has the effect of reducing the torque reaction where the bike tries to pull to the right when throttle is applied due to the crankshaft being north-south rather than east-west.

The transmission in all twisted twins is a 5-speed box. The transmission is different between the 500 and 650, and a 650 transmission can be fitted to a 500 after some not insignificant modifications.
