The Skull Guy

Evolution of A Motor

Honda CB 750

Built between 1969 and 2003 it’s recognized as a milestone for Honda's successful introduction of a transverse, overhead camshaft inline four-cylinder engine that has ever since been the dominant sport bike configuration.

Honda introduced the CB750 motorcycle to the US in 1969. The bike was targeted directly at the US market after Honda officials (including Soichiro Honda himself) repeatedly met with US dealers and understood the opportunity for a larger bike.

Under development for a year, the CB750 offered two unprecedented features, a front disc brake and a straight-4 engine with an overhead camshaft, neither of which was previously available on a mainstream, affordable production bike. These two features, along with the introductory price of $1495.00 (US), gave the CB750 a considerable advantage over its competition, particularly its British rivals...the bike below is a chopped, modified CB750.

Cycle Magazine called the CB750 "the most sophisticated production bike ever" upon its introduction. Cycle World called it a masterpiece, highlighting Honda's painstaking durability testing, the bike's 120 mph top speed, the fade-free performance of the braking, the comfortable ride and excellent instrumentation.

The CB750 was the first modern four-cylinder machine from a mainstream manufacturer, and the term Superbike was coined to describe it. The bike offered other important features that added to its compelling value: electric starter, kill switch, dual mirrors, flashing turn signals, easily maintained valves and overall smoothness and freedom from vibration both underway and at a standstill; later models ('91 on) included maintenance-free hydraulic valves. On the other hand, the bike was difficult to get on its center stand and tended to throw chain oil onto its muffler.
