History of Honda

Black and red motorbike

Founded by a mechanic back in 1948, Honda Motors released their first motorcycle under the Honda brand, the Dream D-Type in 1947 with a 98cc two-stroke engine.

Just like their Japanese counterparts Yamaha, it wasn't long until Honda realised that the emissions-unfriendly two-stroke needed to be replaced with the clean four-stroke, so they designed and introduced the 146cc Dream motorcycle.

Perhaps the most famous of all the Honda bikes was the 50cc Super Cub which was introduced in 1958. Designed so that it could be driven with one hand to help carry packages, it featured an automatic clutch, three speed transmission, automatic starter, all with the friendly look of a bicycle and inexpensive price tag!

By 1959 Honda was the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world and started to export bikes to the U.S.
