The Honda CB750 is quite easily one of the top 10 most important motorcycle models of the 20th century.á
The CB750 was originally built to fulfill the requests of US and European Honda dealers who saw the potential for a larger capacity motorcycle to take on the likes of Harley-Davidson, Norton and Triumph. Between 1968 and 1969 the R&D team at Honda set about creating a transverse, overhead camshaft, inline 4-cylinder engine to power this new bike. This engine was mated to an all new 5-speed transmission, the engine was fitted with 4 carburettors (one for each cylinder) and was capable of 68hp, 44ft-lbs of torque, a top speed of over 120mph and a 1/4 mile time of 13 seconds.
When the bike was first put on sale in 1969 the word 'superbike' was coined to describe it, it came as standard with hydraulic disc brakes, a reliable engine, excellent handling and enough power to beat almost anything on 2 wheels (or 4). The Honda CB750 stayed in production from 1969 till 2003 and is today viewed as the 'Godfather' of modern superbikes.á
This very clean looking 1975 Honda 750-4 shows just 17,000 miles from new, supported by a sheaf of older MOT certificates. A nice original example of an iconic motorcycle.View 1975 Honda 750-4 For Sale on Coys.co.uk for further details.
