Auxiliary engine for bicycles (1946)
After World War II, the use of auxiliary engines mounted on bicycles spread quickly in Japan, making it easier for people to move around and transport goods. This was the starting point of manufacturing for Honda. Ever since, Honda has given shape to the wide-ranging joys and fun of riding on two wheels, through such products as the Super Cub, which went on to become the standard for commuter models, and the Dream CB750 Four, which triggered an unprecedented sports bike boom across Japan. Making motorcycles with the basic goal of bringing joy and satisfaction to people serves as the starting point of Honda.
CRF1000L Africa Twin
Based on the vision of bringing the convenience and fun of motorcycles to as many people as possible, Honda made an early start in expanding its motorcycle business outside of Japan. Honda now has a well-established global production and sales structure and delivers many models with distinctive characteristics to customers across the globe. The CRF1000L Africa Twin, a genuine adventure model, and the RC213V-S, which enables people to enjoy the authentic riding feel of a MotoGP machine on public roads, are being produced at the Kumamoto Factory in Japan and sold around the world mainly in advanced markets such as North America and Europe. Honda factories in Japan and Thailand produce the CBR400/500R and 400X/CB500X, which are also sold around the world.

Many people around the world currently ride Honda's small motorcycles. On a wide range of models we are now installing the "eSP" engine, our new-generation global engine that achieves both excellent riding performance and fuel efficiency. Honda has also offered a succession of wide-ranging new models matching the various lifestyles of individual riders, and continues expanding its lineup with such models as the PCX with its cutting-edge styling design, the Giorno fashion scooter and the MSX125 ("Grom" in Japan), a unique sporty model.
