Honda is the largest motorcycle manufacturer in Japan and it has been since it started production in 1955. At its peak in 1982, Honda manufactured almost 3 million motorcycles annually and by 2006 this figure had reduced to around 550,000 but was still higher than its three domestic competitors. During the 1960s, Honda broke out of the Japanese motorcycle market and began exporting to the U.S. By the end of 1963, Honda had sold more than 90,000 motorcycles.
As Honda was a story of an archetype of a smaller manufacturer entering a new market already occupied by highly dominant competitors, the story of their market entry, and their subsequent huge success in the U.S. and around the world, has been the subject of academic controversy. There have been many competing explanations to explain Honda’s strategy and the reasons for their success.
The most recent school of thought on Honda’s strategy was put forward in 1989. Creating the concept of core competencies with Honda as an example, it was argued that Honda’s success was due to its focus on leadership in the technology of internal combustion engines. For example, the high power to weight ration engines Honda produced for its racing bikes provided technology and expertise which was transferable into mopeds. Honda also had an entry into the US motorcycle market during the 1960s. This is now used as a case study for teaching introductory strategy at business schools worldwide. The most popular Honda motorcycle models include: CB Series, CM Series, CX Series, CBR Series, XR/XL Series (Dirt and dual-sport Bikes), Bros/HawkGT (NT650), VF/VFR Series, VT Series, VTX Series, ST Series, Valkyrie, GL Series (Gold Wing), Dax, Honda Fury.
10. The CBR900RR Fireblade is quite possibly one of Honda's most influential and successful sportsbikes even outside of the Honda badge with steady sales over the last 20 years. Lightweight and powerful, the 1996 sports bike boasted a 918cc engine, stainless steel exhaust and higher bars making it a great steerer, fast to react and built well enough to withstand a mixed terrain. Great for taller riders as it's quite bulky in modern standards, so the larger area helps create a safer ride when you've got a lot 'up top'.
9. CBR1100XX Super Blackbird is built for speed and can reach an eye-watering 178mph (not that you'd ever get to test it of course!), and back in 1996 it was the fastest bike in the world. It's design wouldn't look too out of place today on modern roads for the more civilised rider, anyway. Boasting a 137bhp engine with 80lbs per foot of torque, that's more torque than the mrs! Again a bit big and bulky compared to more modern bikes, but hey, you can't win em all.
8. In at number 8, it's the VFR750 (RC36) and probably the oldest ride in the list dating back to 1990 (no we don't want your VFR750! lol) it's older than the average member of One Direction but sounds a damn site better. Top whack it gets upto 150 mph, has a tonne of midrange and great on a long run this old timer was made for cross-country commutes and days out due to it's reliabilty and comfort.
7. The VFR800 VTEC (2005 onwards) is a massive improvement to the 750, with a stack of mod cons, ECU altering ignition timing and fuelling based on throttle and gear position, abs brakes, 220-mile tank and the bulletproof reliability synonymous with the VFR badge. Look out for hefty service bills and dodgy cam chains.
6. CBR600F comes in at the halway mark making it a great compromise between speed and comfort, with no distinctive selling-points as such, but an overall 'best of both worlds' when looking for a bike that's not necessarily built for speed, but still got a fair amount of 'oomph' it can handle windy backroads as well as track days if you're willing to fill her up a bit more often than your 'other' bike. Who hasn't owned a CBR at some point?
5. The CB1000R (2008+) weighs in at 100lbs (per ft torque) and waves the sportsbike flag with pride. It's stripped-down appearance and 130 bhp engine means it's easy to ride with plenty of power and doesn't look like you've borrowed your dads bike either. Ok, the suspension is a bit on the soft side and your passenger is likely to get a bit wet according to reviews (oh well), but apart from that it's a great build and boasts a single-sided swing arm and some fancy clocks.
4. The CB1000RR Fireblade just pipped the single R to the 4th spot in our opinion, with it's MotoGP attire and no-messing attitude. Nippy and responsive, it's electronic steering damper (ESD) and larger brakes give it the control and stopping power you'd expect from a 175mph bike, with a meaty midrange it's great on both road and track, often making you feel you're better than you actually are.
3. CBR929RR - here we have another blade in the list, this one's a bit sharper than it's predacessors, weighting 9kg less and punching 150bhp it has quick steering, huge braking power and a few quirky additions such as immobiliser (how very 21st century!), USD forks and 17-inch wheels.
2. Last Fireblade in the list and still miles away from the finish line, it's the Fireblade CBR954RR (2002+). One of many fireblade variants to make our list and still popular throughout the mc community it's slimmer, sharper and smaller than previous models with better suspension, brakes, wheels, exhaust and suspension being it's selling points.
1. In at number 1 is a honda classic, the CB500 - not one we'd be looking to buy ourselves, but definitely a classic ride worthy of the top title. At only 500cc it was designed to stand the test of time, and it certainly is amongst readers at VisorDown, who voted this legendary workhorse as their favourite. Often seen in multiple capacities as a courier's companion or riding school's entourage it's a sturdy and faultless workhorse that keeps on running, and packs a punch when it needs to.
