God performs a cosmic weighing of the volume of Honda automobiles produced Vs. Honda motorcycles.

Does Honda make more cars or motorcycles?

Honda Cars Vs. Motorcycles

To some, Honda is primarily a car brand. But to others, the first association that comes to their mind is motorcycles. After all, the biggest Honda products are automobiles, motorcycles, and power equipment.

So which does Honda make the most of? Does Honda primarily make cars or motorcycles?

Honda makes more motorcycles than cars, taking into account both the full span of their history and the most recent production year. Motorcycles are smaller and simpler than cars, and thus cheaper and faster to both build and purchase. They may especially benefit from sales in developing countries where many people do not have money for cars (which may also be too large to be practical in the crowded streets), but who can improve their state-of-living by purchasing a motorbike.

Sure, Honda makes more motorcycles than cars. But what about bicycles?

How many cars and motorcycles has Honda built?

Since their first motorcycle was released in 1949, Honda has made over 400 million motorcycles. The automaker reached this milestone just last year, in December 2019. The feat took seventy years to accomplish.

A figure representing the total number of automobiles built is not so readily available. However, Honda did report selling 5.3-million automobiles in the 2019 fiscal year. While being 124,000 more automobiles than they sold the previous year, this figure was still far below the 20.3-million motorcycles sold by the conglomerate. Of their total automotive sales, more than 40 percent occurred in Asia.

Did Honda originally make cars or motorcycles?

Honda made motorcycles before they made cars. Their first motorcycle, the D-Type, or “Dream,” came out in 1949. The first automobile (actually a mini pick-up truck known as the Honda T630) went on sale in 1963.

Originally, however, Honda did not sell cars or motorcycles. The company formed in 1937 to make piston rings, and began to grow in success when they won a contract to supply the part to Toyota.

Does Honda make bicycles?

Honda Bicycle Production

Honda is renowned for making excellent motorcycles and automobiles. Every year, the conglomerate pumps out a plethora of quality machines. They’ve also tried their hand at some other methods of transportation, such as jet skis.

But what about non-motorized vehicles, such as skateboards, skis, or… bikes? Does Honda make, or have they ever made, a bicycle?

Honda RN01 Racing Bike

While Honda does not make bicycles for the commercial market, they once made a downhill racing bike known as the Honda RN01. This bicycle was created with the goal of dominating the 2003 Japan Series and World Cup competitions. It has never been made available for consumers, nor has a price ever been announced.

How was the Honda RN01 made?

To create it, the motorcycle and research division of Honda Japan worked with Kayaba Industry Co. Ltd., a company known for working on things like F1 powerboats, snowmobiles, and skyscraper dampening systems. The brainiacs on each team put their heads together to design an in-frame suspension system that could translate unsprung weight into power.

Are Honda bicycles available for purchase online?

Bicycles claiming to be made by Honda can sometimes be found online, but these are almost certainly not legitimate. We recommend the utmost wariness when dealing with such questionable products.

An example of one presumably knockoff Honda bike is offered for sale on the website overstock.com. Listed under the name “Honda Racing 24-inch Mountain Bike,” this product lists being released in 2007 with its country of origin being China. There are a few rather questionable-sounding positive reviews written in stilted English, all of which put strong emphasis on the bike being “great.”

The most recent review is a one-star rating from a proclaimed bicycle mechanic who states that there is nothing “racing-oriented” about the Honda Racing 24-inch Mountain Bike aside from the multitude of stickers plastered callously across its body. He then does a thorough job of deriding the flaws of the bicycle, which turn out to be, well, basically everything.

One unfortunate buyer, with the username “grandpa,” asks in the question and answers section why the “left peddle and arm (whole assembly)” of his Honda Racing 24-inch Mountain Bike, “keeps coming off.” Luckily, it appears the product has been out of stock for quite some time, thereby sparing any more unwary buyers from such a presumably traumatic experience.

Interior Space Specs for the 2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

When they first started hitting lots around the country – lots like ours here at Pohanka Honda of Salisbury on the Delmarva Peninsula – hybrid models were roundly and routinely mocked for many different reasons.

But fast forward to the present and you’ll find that all of that has changed – and it’s all changed thanks, in part, to models like the 2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.
