The History Of Honda Dirt Bikes

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of Honda. I’m sure you’ve seen a Honda. You see a metallic “H” enveloped my a soft edge square shape and you know that that vehicle’s a Honda.

Honda has been here for a long time.

Honda was founded by Soichihiro Honda. He wasn’t a mechanical engineer by profession, but he did have an immense interest in all things automotive. He studied and taught himself the technical knowhow necessary for him to work in the world of automotives.

He designed his first engine which he wished to sell to Toyota.

However, the 2 nd World War got in the way of Honda’s automotive dreams. The war prevented him developing his engine designs with Toyota. Coupled with the post-war condition of Japan, it looked like Honda’s dream of becoming an automotive engineer was gone.

Then he had an idea of putting a small, lightweight engine to an everyday bicycle. These small motorized bikes captured the interest of post-war Japan. They were efficient, and more importantly, they were cheap. They didn’t eat up too much from Japan’s already limited oil reserves.

And they gave the people motorized vehicles they can use for their everyday lives.

These small bikes became the very first Honda motorcycles. Fast forward, and Honda has become a respected household name.
