Soichiro Honda, founder of Honda Motor Company in 1948, instituted a simple mandate, “Do Not Imitate.” It seems pretty clear to us if you look over the company’s 70 year history that employees took Honda’s charge seriously.
Honda first built motorized bicycles and then sold engines for existing bicycle owners to attach to their bikes. The Honda Model A represented the first complete Honda motorcycle in 1949. Fifteen years later, Honda Motor Company was the largest manufacturer of motorcycles in the world. Light trucks and cars followed and Honda beat rivals Toyota and Nissan to the luxury car market after introducing the Acura in 1986.
But we’re off-roaders through and through so what we really care about is dirt bikes. Considered the company’s first dirt bike, the Elsinore debuted in 1970. Shortly afterwards, the SL125 emerged and then re-released with a 250cc engine. The CR series arrived in the mid-70s and today the CRF450 is one of the most popular dirt bikes.
If Soichiro Honda was alive today he might tweak his mandate to include, “Accept no imitations.” OEM Honda parts imitate no one. Dirt bike owners who demand authenticity and stock features need to look no further. Genuine OEM Honda parts keep your dirt bike 100 percent Honda.
