Honda Motorcycles

The Honda Motor Company, Ltd. (Honda Giken Kōgyō Kabushiki-gaisha) made a name for itself as a two-wheeled vehicle manufacturer, first in post-war Japan in 1955, then in the U.S. market starting in the early 1960s. It has since become the most prolific motorcycle manufacturer in the world with over 400 million units built as of the time of this writing, and it maintains a strong presence in the racing world as well to make it a very significant player on the world stage.

2014 - 2022 Honda CBR600RR

2014 - 2022 Honda CBR600RR

It’s a MotoGP-inspired race replica

Honda’s latest generation of 600 cc, CBR supersports toes the family line with its race-winning blend of power and maneuverability all packed onto a MotoGP-inspired chassis. Much like the original CBR600RR that hit the streets back in ’03 and was built as a racebike replica, the current model features a strong engine along with a front suspension featuring Honda’s 41mm Big Piston Fork for superb handling and snappy action, plus MotoGP-inspired bodywork in a race-tested aerodynamic supersport design.

2019 - 2021 Honda CB300R

It’s really more of a ’sport-roadster’ than a cafè racer

Honda expanded its Neo-Sports Café lineup with the new-in-2019 CB300R that brings more of the same café-tastic vibe as with the CB1000R, just in an entry level-size package. This naked little pocket crotch-rocket — or “Sport Naked” as the factory has dubbed the style — looks to pull in younger riders with a user-friendly, 286 cc powerplant and lightweight design. After a race to the bottom of the usable displacement range for the sport and naked genres, Honda is refining its bottom-tier rides.

2022 Honda CBR500R

Help from the CBR650R gives this budding little Fireblade better handling, more power, and more torque down low

Honda hit its CBR500R with a whole battery of tweaks and improvements for MY2022 that go far beyond the cursory BNG treatment that frequently marks “updated” models. The frame rocks a new lighter swingarm assembly with re-tuned flexion baked right in. Showa provides their SFF-BP stems up front along with a weight shift forward to improve the front contact patch integrity. Tuned-up fuel injection delivers more of what the factory calls “torque feel and character” to complete the major improvements over the 2021 model.

2022 Honda CB500F

Entry-level, sure, but are the improvements enough to appeal to experienced riders?

Honda extends the shelf life of its naked-streetfighter middleweight hitting its CB500F with a battery of new improvements. Powerful new LED lights join with new suspension components and a reworked swingarm assembly. Plus, a handful of weight-saving measures lighten the load and shift the balance point even further forward for sharper handling.

2019 - 2021 Honda CB650R

The new neo-sport café adds its retro-tastic flare to the middleweight field

After a race to the upper displacement range and a subsequent search for the bottom usable cubeage, Honda revisited its midrange and spruced up its CB650R ahead of the 2019 model year. That’s right sports fans; the Neo Sport Café concept has gone to production under this new moniker, and it rolled into MY2019 with a handful of tweaks that brushed up the looks and carved off a little fat. The powerplant also took a beating from the buffhammer to turn out a 5-percent increase in power with changes to improve rideability and safety.

2020 - 2022 Honda Rebel 300 / 500

2020 - 2022 Honda Rebel 300 / 500

Honda’s iconic Rebel, now with a slip-and-assist clutch

Honda rolls into the new decade with the first overhaul to its newest-generation Rebel range. It has only been a few years since the classic Rebel line was replaced by the current iteration, and the added features are largely due to feedback from the new rider base. New suspension components improve the ride along with upgrades to the lighting and clutch pack to increase overall safety and expand its buyer base.

2021 - 2022 Honda CB1000R Black

2021 - 2022 Honda CB1000R Black

The Black Edition is the first real update to the CB1000R in a long time

Honda goes a bit beyond the cursory “Bold New Graphics” package that frequently heralds a new model-year with new bodywork and a blackout paint package on the Honda CB1000R that sets it well apart from the previous version to make it the “Black Edition.” Improved electronics join with the new looks for some under-the-hood improvements increasing its utility as a commuter, and a fun one at that. The punchy four-banger reprises its role as the beating heart with throttle-by-wire and riding modes on board to help with engine management.

2022 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP

This latest Fireblade brings even more race-tasticness for the bona fide pegdraggers and would-be racers among us

Honda buffed up its CBR1000RR-R SP ahead of MY2022 with a number of improvements under a milestone motley meant to mark its 30th anniversary. Power output saw a boost right along with measures meant to wring even more speed with electronics tweaks to improve rider control and overall throttle response. This latest Fireblade variation brings even more race-tastic yummygoodness to the table for the bona fide pegdraggers and would-be racers among us, and comes with features that elevate it significantly beyond the non-SP version, all the way to the track.

2021 - 2022 Honda PCX

2021 - 2022 Honda PCX

Restyled on the outside and a new, larger engine on the inside

Honda went far beyond the cursory Bold New Graphics treatment for 2021 with a newly rebuilt and rebranded PCX for riders seeking an affordable urban-mobility solution. The ground-up redesign features a new frame with an equally-new-and-improved engine, all wrapped up under newly refined bodywork. You are given a choice between a base model and an anti-lock brake version that won’t break the bank and promises to be inexpensive to operate as well.

2021 - 2022 Honda CRF300L / CRF300L Rally

Reduced weight, increased power, and improved off-road performance

Good news sports fans! Honda spruced up its dual-sport CRF300L base model and its Rally variant ahead of 2021 with a solid 15-percent increase in displacement, a concurrent 10-percent increase in power, reduced weight, and improved off-road performance. The Rally model brings even more off-road prowess to the table with its Ricky Brabec-inspired equipment package for riders looking to do some actual trailblazing/globetrotting work.

2015 - 2023 Honda Ruckus

This has got to be the Mad Max of scooterdom

Bare bones — naked bike, anyone? — and gnarly, the Ruckus looks like it’s right out of Mad Max. Even though it does have a 50 cc engine, no one is going to say, “Awww, isn’t that cute?” when you ride by on a Honda Ruckus. Granted, you won’t get going very fast on a Ruckus, so on-lookers will get a good, long look.

2015 - 2022 Honda XR650L

2015 - 2022 Honda XR650L

It’s the "I wanna have fun" bike you’ll hang on to

Honda carries its venerable XR650L line into 2022, but to be honest, it’s almost completely unchanged — save for a BNL update — from the original version unleashed on the world back in 1993. Before you scoff, I would point out that sharks haven’t changed in millions of years, having evolved long ago into creatures perfectly suited to their environments, and apparently, so it is with the XR650L. The Red Riders got it right out of the gate with this one, and popular support keeps the bike on Honda’s showroom floors even after nearly a quarter-century.

2022 - 2023 Honda Grom

2022 - 2023 Honda Grom

The third generation of Grom promises more speed and more fun

Honda rolled out its Grom 125 ahead of 2022 with a handful of improvements to go along with a reworked, retro-styled body. It carries a new transmission ahead of a cleaner engine in terms of emissions, and sports a larger fuel tank to extend the good times. In spite of its new look, it’s still readily recognizable as a Grom ’cause the monkey-bike charm still shines through to make that crucial connection to Honda’s own rich history and the 1963 model that started it all.

2022 Honda Navi

2022 Honda Navi

We can now have twist-and-go operation on a ride with awesome fuel economy that doesn’t look like a scooter

Honda finally exports its little, entry-level Navi to our side of the pond for a net-new model in the U.S. market. Built mainly for new riders, the Navi brings its pit-bike panache and twist-and-go operation to the table along with a very agreeable price that puts it well within the realm of possibility for the young riders it so clearly targets.
