The CB77 had, at only 305cc, a relatively big engine in comparison to most other Japanese bikes of the period. It did boast performance to rival much larger motorcycles. It also developed a reputation for reliability and was equipped with an electric starter.

A product of the experience Honda gained in Grand Prix racing, the CB77 featured a steel-tube frame (rather than the pressed frame construction of earlier Hondas) and a telescopic front fork. It’s parallel twin engine (the biggest then available in a Honda) was a structural element of the bike and it provided stiffness in a frame which lacked a downtube. Capable of 9,000 rpm, the bike could reach 100 mph, and it’s now regarded as ‘the first modern Japanese motorcycle.’

It served as the motorcycle paradigm Honda adheres to today.
