1971 Honda CB750

Tokyo Motorcycle Show, 1968: the unveiling of Honda’s CB750, the first four-cylinder superbike. The impact of this new model was enormous, gargantuan, game changing. There had been 4-cylinder bikes before, but they were for the wealthy few. This was a bike for the masses and the ripples it caused through the entire industry were felt almost immediately as retaliation models came thick and fast from Kawasaki, Triumph, BSA, Suzuki, Laverda…

The CB750 was steeped in high specifications: overhead camshaft, disc front brake, five-speed gearbox, electric starter, etc – making the opposition look obsolete overnight. And now, 50+ years later, it is still a useable classic with power, braking and handling that will keep up in modern day traffic.
