Simple mistake I am certain, but the title of the thread is "What is the best motorcycle that HONDA ever made?"

You listed a Yamaha and a Harley.

Just saying

2003 CBR600RR, 1972 CB450, 2002 Suzuki SV650

Well, one bike that should be listed is the RC-51. Or, we could take it to the extreme, and list Nickey Hayden's RC-211.

cb750 - radical at the time, most sold bike for years, the fastest AND most reliable AND cheap!!

goldwings - luxury

Valkyrie and Rune - finally honda designers got to make a bike they put their heart into.

V65 Magna - this was the first production chopper, pulled back bars, forward pegs, raked out forks, hydraulic brakes and clutch, gear indicator, fuel light, 6 speed transmission, 1100 cc V4 engine that screamed so hard from 5k to redline(10k) that it twisted the frame, water cooled, handled great, ran a high 10 second quarter mile off the production floor and sold for 3300 dollars. worlds fastest production motorcycle for 2 years until the vmax took it, however the magna posted top speeds all over the place from 171 to 175 from multiple sources. and is still considered one of the BADDEST cruisers on the road today.

And the V65 Magna's are still on the road today running as good as the day they were built!

I was looking at the new V-4 that Honda has made, and I was thinking that it would make an awesome engine for Honda to use for a new V75 Magna or Sabre

I gotta vote for the early V4's. Not just because I have an 82 Sabre (though I admit I'm quite biased), but there were revolutionary bikes back in the day. Now if it only weren't for those **** cam problems that plagued their reputation...

Some of them have a problem with eating up the cams because of insufficient oil flow. A lot of them don't. But some people still do oil mods to try and hold it off. I guess there were also problems with valve adjustment. You can find the early story here:

The only problems that my '84 Sabre had were a seat that was too low (re-upholstered it.), too long steering rake and not enough power.
As I only used Mobil 1, no camshaft problems.
I put 45,000 miles on it and sold it with 92,000.

Anime,
What Denis was referring to, is a commercial on TV with some old has-been jock spokesperson stating to
"put Chevy against anything that Honda makes except for their lawnmowers because they are self-propelled."
As usual, the dumbing down of America shines through in the ad.
Because in stating that, Chevy apparently does NOT build cars/trucks that are self-propelled.
Just another stupid ad campaign, that no one in charge actually thought about!

Yeah, like I said, from what I've read it doesn't affect every bike, in fact it doesn't affect most, but it was enough to scare people, apparently. What do you mean by too long steering rake?

As far as power goes, I'm just starting out, but that thing's got more power than I could ask for. it pulls like a monster.

The angle that the front forks stick out to clear the radiator, makes it harder to steer in tight turns.
Excellent, with the long wheel-base, for highway cruising.
It has plenty, if not more than enough power, for 98% of all riders.
I am just spoiled.

I believe that the CT series 90 and 110 were the best selling bikes Honda ever made, and perhaps one of the best in history. Besides I used to have one and I thought it was great!

I'm going to have to put in another vote for the CB 750. The engine has been best described as bulletproof.

Obviously the cb750 & Cub were/are steadfast Honda bikes. After I traded my Harley, I bought my first Honda. I got an 08 Goldwing. It has huge power, handling and comfort. Perfect for me!
