The Honda CB750 is a motorcycle built in several model series between 1969 and 2003, and also in 2007, that is recognized as a milestone for Honda's successful introduction of the transverse, overhead camshaft inline four-cylinder engine that has been seen ever since in the dominant sport bike configuration. Though MV Agusta had sold such a model in 1965, and it had been used in racing engines before World War II, the CB750 is recognized as the four-cylinder sport bike that had a lasting impact and is often called the first superbike. The model is included in the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Classic Bikes, the Discovery Channel's "Greatest Motorbikes Ever," and was in The Art of the Motorcycle exhibition, and is in the UK National Motor Museum. The Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan, Inc. rates the 1969 CB750 as one of the 240 Landmarks of Japanese Automotive Technology.from wikipediagreetings matthias
