Honda CB750KO

On Display

The CB750 is the best selling superbike ever. Announced at the 1968 Tokyo Show, it was Honda's first four-cylinder production motorcycle and caused an immediate sensation. Initially, the demand in the United States was so great that few found their way into Britain. Marketed to compete directly with BSA and Triumph triples, the new Honda was a bitter blow to a faltering British bike industry.

As early as 1970, a factory-backed team was entered in the Daytona 200. Despite strong opposition from BSA, Triumph and Harley Davidson, Dick Mann won, averaging 102.69mph/165.26kph.

Only 36 of the rare KO version were sold in the United Kingdom.
