Year: 1969
Type: Sportbike 

When Sorichio Honda first laid eyes on American bikes he couldn’t believe how big there were. He went home and came up with the CB750—it was the first successful inline-4 sportsbike and over 400,000 were eventually produced between 1969 and 1978. The popularity was due to the reliability, styling, and performance, but it also had a kill-switch and flashing turn signals. That was a big deal back then.
