The Honda Collection Hall, located within the grounds of Twin Ring Motegi, was established upon a concept springing from the words of Founder, Soichiro Honda: “Machines never lie. Success will always come if they’re really good. So let’s show the world what we’ve done. Then they can see the real Honda!”
Within the hall on display are not only Honda’s production motorcycles, automobiles and power products manufactured on the concept of being useful to people, but racing machines that aimed to reach the pinnacle of motor sports, accompanied by photographs and episodes describing their prime years and Honda’s dreams and passion for racing.
The Honda Collection Hall will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2018, and still shares Honda’s roots with visitors now.
A former Honda factory rider, Hikaru Miyagi has won the All-Japan Championships and the U.S. Championships. Also a talented racing car driver, Miyagi has tracktested both two- and four-wheel racing machines at the Honda Collection Hall since its inception. His activities span many diverse fields, including MotoGP television broadcasts, World Endurance Championship Series race commentary, motorcycle magazine articles, lecturering in riding schools, and promoting safe driving. In September 2016, Miyagi set two world records driving the Honda S-Dream Streamliner developed by the Automobile R&D Center and powered by an S660-based engine.
