The very first mass-produced Honda motorcycle was a 98cc Dream Type-D manufactured in 1949. More than 65 years later and the 300-millionth unit produced by the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has rolled out of its Kumamoto Factory in Japan.
The milestone unit is a Gold Wing 40th Anniversary Edition, which marks the celebration of the nameplate's, er, 40th anniversary.
"Thanks to support from our customers and all of the people involved in the development, production and sales, Honda was able to reach the 300-million-unit milestone," said Honda Motor president and chief executive Takanobu Ito. "We will continue to provide products that will please our customers in each country and region in the world."
Today, Honda produces motorcycles, ATVs and side-by-sides in 32 plants located in 22 countries.
