In the world of two-wheelers, Honda is one of the brands that has earned its brand, tag and status. It is easily recognised among the brands considered to be the largest two-wheeler manufacturers in the entire globe. The company was initially founded by Soichiro Honda, in the year 1937. Honda established itself as a piston ring manufacturer for four wheelers and supplied it to companies like Toyota. As years passed and many changes came into the company, it evolved from a piston ring manufacturer and supplier to a dedicated two-wheeler manufacturer.
The company’s first invention was a improvised motorized bicycle, equipped with a 50cc engine, named the A-type. Further changes resulted in Honda producing their first complete motorcycle with frames and engine, in the year 1949 was named the D-type. By the year 1964, Honda Motors was declared the largest producer of motorbikes in the entire world. Ever Since, Honda as a manufacturer has ventured into producing fuel efficient four-wheelers, luxury cars, motor engines, jet engines and more. Expanding to a wider geographic arena, the entry of the Honda Civic Car into the United States, sparked a wider pool of customers for Honda, making it a household name and an increase in their world market share in the automobile industry as well.
