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:

I'm glad you liked it cbr600f4gd . Another try on the 4 valve radial head or should I just let it go?
