Honda, the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world since 1959, has been producing Honda motorcycles since 1955. The marquee of marquees in the motorcycle world, Honda is synonymous with racing, performance, quality and value. The Japanese company’s product lines are legendary and Honda’s entry into and rapid dominance of the expanding U.S. Motorcycle Market in the 1960s was nothing short of revolutionary. Honda entered a market dominated by European makes and models and, by making reliable, affordable machines, overtook the market completely in a short amount of time.

Honda Motorcycles fill every segment of riding, racing and recreation. From MotoGP dominating sport bikes to championship-winning off-road machines, Honda is the benchmark brand in the motorcycling industry.

The entire Honda Motorcycles family is made of legendary models. From the Gold Wing (Touring) to the CBR (sport) and XR or CRF (off-road), every segment is made of championship-winning or undoubtedly proven platforms. Historically, Honda is known for Baja racing dominance aboard the XR line, primarily the now-discontinued XR650R, and the CRF X models. Similarly, the CR and CRF line of competition motocross bikes have championship-dominating roots formed over decades. Grand Prix, TT and all forms of road racing competition have been dominated, at one point, by Honda.

All this racing business makes sense as Honda founder, Soichiro Honda, was a real motorcycle racing enthusiast.

Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) was founded in 1982 as the racing participation arm of the brand. HRC’s role is to support and compete in racing activities, develop high-performance race machines and contribute to the advancement of motorcycle technologies used in production Honda motorcycles.
