Honda CB750 – The Birth of the Superbike

June 12, 2020

The first modern superbike, the Honda CB750 rides through Brighton, where the original prototype was first shown in Europe in 1969. The Honda CB750 was the bike that changed everything. It was light years ahead of everyone else and contributed to the fall of the once great British motorcycle industry.

The CB750 was considered by many to be the first superbike and you can see why – it offers proper performance, refinement and pure class. Experience this incredible classic machine, with its trademark 750cc four-cylinder engine and fantastic sound and see why it was the motorcycle of choice for generations of riders..

  • The CB750 was my first bike. It was red. The only thing I didn't like about it was you had to synchronize the four carburetors because the throttle had four cables run into the top of them. Later they used a linkage system that tied them together which kept the in tune better.

  • It's an utter delight to twist that throttle. It's confidence, simplicity and comfort – be it travel or commute.

  • This is a wonderful piece. Bloody hell ! As a kid in the 1970's those CB Honda's were my daydreams. They were brillant. Let's hope Honda has one more trick up their sleeve. Would luv to hear what you think of the Honda CB-F prototype.

  • Talk about a trip through memory lane. Great videography, thanks for putting together! 👍🏼

  • My first road bike bought in ‘76 – a Red K1. Enjoyed the memory-lane heaps with such great footage, thanks. Been riding comfy retro bikes ever since, currently a CB1300 on the track https://youtu.be/WJBBP3tdt_M And a very mint black ‘14 Yamaha XJR1300 as a collectable, of sorts.

  • I could just scream. When I was fresh out of Vietnam in 1969, the first thing I did was trade in my black CA77 Dream for a shiny red CB750. It was the first one the dealer had gotten so we made the trade and I rode home on Serial Number 1001352. BTW, I was down to 115 pounds after the hardships of the tour of duty in a tropical clime, so needless to say, that fast bike was respected by the muscle car guys. I finished my remaining year and a half at Fort Knox, Kentucky, then removed the front wheel and drive chain and bolted the front axle to the rear bumper of my car to tow it back home 600 miles. I got a job as a motorcycle mechanic in 1979 and traded the CB in on a CX500, getting $900 for the 30,000 mile 750. There comes the scream when I hear what the early ones bring these days. But, I must say, I did not miss the 4 cylinder and was happy with the twin, but now days I have an ST1100 that they will probably have to pry from my cold, dead hands.

  • I had a 71-750CB, Mr. Honda asked if he could build 100cc oversized piston system. It was fast but needed aviation fuel to not ping! So Mr. Honda took bike back, detuned system for gas-station type fuel! Then I took it around America for 3 months from teaching school. Students learned about thousandth of an inch by riding bike into classroom an pulling/measuring spark plug gaps! Then I followed up as asked an wrote field test results for Mr. Honda

  • You had to be a big guy to handle this beast.

  • Would love to get one of these, cause they still hold up. I've owned two Nighthawks (84' CB700S, 93' CB750), and I now own a 17' CB1100EX. I love UJM's, and I hope we will always have a few rolling around.

    Next time a "peridod correct" Seiko automatic made in Japan would be much better as a watch.

  • Another well shot video but not enough sounds from the star of the film The Honda 750 less music and more power sounds

  • As I wrote in on of your other pieses..While stationed in Japan I found one of the Honda "homo" 750s. A KO with sand cast cases. It wasn't until the '76 Kaw 750 came out that another 750 could match it. And mine was one of the gold tankers.
