Four hundred million! That’s how many motorcycles and scooters the Honda Motor Company has produced since 1948. Founded, of course, by Soichiro Honda, as a purveyor of piston rings – he supplied to Toyota which was just starting to produce cars – Honda quickly determined that post-war Japan needed cheap transportation and thus the Dream “Model D” was born, powered by 98-cc two-stoke motor.
Crazy to think that four hundred million Honda bikes have been sold throughout Honda’s history. Currently 20 million get sold a year, 10 million of those in Asia and Indonesia while Europe and North America sell a combined 640,000 per year. Looking at those numbers just imagine how many more riders are on the road in Asia and Indo! Hopefully Honda keeps rolling out classics like the Goldwing, CB750, and the Rebel.
We love Honda here at Domio Sports. Without the hottest companies like Honda making people fall in love with bikes we would never have been able to get started as a Motorcycle Helmet Audio company.
Keep the good times rolling!
