Which was the last 5 cylinder bike to race in GP before the Honda RC211V that we'll see next year in GP1 category?

I'll show off a little with this answer and give you more than you asked for....

Luigi Taveri won the manufacturer's and rider's championships for Honda in 1966 with the 125cc RC149.

and the winner is...

Exactly, you start to amaze me Robert

It seems that Honda has all the tricks in their sleeves don't they?
This bike is one of the most amazing in the history of Honda (together with the 6 cyl 250 and 2 cyl 50cc). It produced 34hp at 20.500 rpm and 1,22 kgm at 19300rpm!

You can hear the little engine scream at http://www.honda.co.jp/hondafan/sound/sort/rc149.html


Here is a nice picture of this crazy screamer:
