Honda is one of the most recognized brands in the world and the Honda Motorcycles and Honda ATV are a big part of that status. From it’s humble beginnings in America in 1959, Honda has become the largest powersports brand in the United States.
Honda Street Bikes
When it comes to street motorcycles, the Honda CBR600rr and CBR1000rr have been extremely popular, both on and off the track. With almost 135 hp and a close ratio 6 speed transmission, the CBR600rr is a bike you can tear it up on for years to come.
If you’re looking to slow it down a little bit but still like the feel of raw steel between your legs, Honda’s cruiser line will surely fit the bill. Whether it’s the moderately priced Honda Shadow line, the mid size VTX1300, Interstate or Stateline or the Chopper inspired Fury, Honda’s cruiser line can’t be beat.
For those who can’t decide between the street and the dirt, there are three very popular Honda dualsport motorcycles to choose from. Fashioned from the CRF230 offroad bike, Honda has the CRF230M super motard which comes standard with street tires and the CRF230L with offroad tires, both street legal. Rounding out the dualsports is the XR650L. With just under a 3.0 gallon fuel tank, this Baja inspired machine puts out huge numbers when it comes to torque and power.
Honda Dirt Bikes
Honda sells more dirt bikes than any other manufacturer. They do this by having a properly sized dirt bike for the rider no matter what the size or skill level. For the entry level riders, the CRF50 and CRF70 come with an easy to use 3-speed automatic transmission. This allows them to gain confidence with the throttle and brakes with less focus on shifting the gears.
Once they have mastered the basics, the CRF80, CRF100, CRF150F and CRF230 will allow the rider to learn the mechanics of proper shifting with a clutch and a 5-speed manual transmission. They will also gain more power and a stronger suspension as they go up in size.
For the racers, Honda’s CRF250r and CRF450r are made for champions. With numerous podiums every year, these fuel injected monsters will give you that extra edge whether you’re pulling hard out of a turn or looking for that extra throttle for the next triple.
If you’re looking for a lot of power but don’t get excited about kick starting the beast, the CRF250x and CRF450x come standard with an electric start, an enduro meter and are green sticker certified in the state of California.
Whether on the ranch or on the way to a duck blind, the class leading Honda Rancher Utility ATV (420cc) fits the bill. With options that include electric shift, power steering, automatic transmission and 4 wheel drive, you’re sure to find a Honda RancherATV that suits your individual needs.
If you’re looking more power, independent suspension or a built in GPS, the Honda Rincon (680cc) and Rubicon (500cc) ATV’s will not only get you there quicker, but in more comfort with the additonal features.
Honda also has a highly regarded line of Sport ATV’s that range from the entry level TRX90 to the race ready TRX450. If you’re looking for the biggest, baddest Sport ATV ever made by Honda, the TRX700 will not disappoint.
With gas mileage as high as 100 mpg, Honda Scooters are sure to save some $ when it comes time to fill up. All Honda scooters include an automatic transmission and range in size from 50cc (Metropolitan and Ruckus) to 600cc (Silver Wing). They are easy to ride, easy to park and just plain fun.
