Not many motorcycles managed to leave a mark in the history of a two-wheeled vehicle with an engine. But the CB750 Four is one of those who could. On a unique anniversary bike writes foreign edition Rideapart.

Think of the Harley-Davidson Model J, which won the MV Agusta 500 Three World Championship or even the Honda Cub, which became the best-selling bike in the world (since its appearance in the late 50s more than 100 million units were sold). When Honda created the CB750 Four, it created what is considered to be the first superbike in the modern world. The company achieved significant success in the second half of the 20th century, and in 2019 it celebrates the 50th anniversary of the legendary model in a special way.

Honda chose the CB1000R, a modern motorcycle with an inline four-cylinder engine, as the basis for the anniversary version. The manufacturer is expected to present the CB1 Tribute at the Roma Motodays exhibition, which will be held in Italy from March 7 to 10.

The main changes relate to the exterior of the bike: it received a corresponding to the era of blue-gold livery, as well as a double Y-shaped silencer and spoke wheels. All these features refer us to the original Four. The seat is trimmed with Alcantara.

The site Roma Motodays states that this is the only model created in collaboration with Honda Italy. So there is no talk about serial or at least limited edition. One lucky visitor to the show will receive the keys to Tribute. All visitors need to do is buy a ticket to the show and register online for the contest.
