In the 1960s, Japanese motorcycle manufacturers were eating into the markets in Europe and the United States with genuinely new designs and modern technology. In 1968, Honda dropped its four-cylinder bombshell in the form of the CB750, complete with electric starter, five-speed gearbox and front disc brake. More than that, it offered speed, convenience, reliability and oiltightness, features that were normally mutually exclusive. The first ‘superbike’ had arrived.


In this book, Rod Ker tells the story of the Honda CB750 and its development during the 1970s. The author also covers the Four’s subsequent rebirth as a classic, its present iconic status and includes buying advice for the twenty-first century.
