There are certain name brands that stick out no matter what and the Honda name is one that definitely does. Most people tend to think of the high quality coupes and sedans offered by the Japanese auto manufacturer. Many would be surprised to learn that this company actually got its start making vehicles of the two-wheeled varieties. In the years following the second World War in the Far East as well as in Europe the demand for motor bikes and motorcycles seemed to reach an all new high. In answer to this growing demand for affordable, convenient transportation in the urban areas and elsewhere, several companies got their starts including Honda. After the initial production began, it didn’t take long for the superior engineering and designs to make their mark on the local market. The company’s dirt bikes and motorcycles were soon entered into competitions and races all over Europe and the East. As a result, the Honda name, along with its products, quickly became a common everyday household word throughout the world. As pretty much everyone knows, Honda continued to grow and produce a more diversified line of products, including adding cars to the mix. However well received its four-wheeled offerings have been there are plenty of Honda fans who remain so because of the company’s motorcycle products.
