WHEN HONDA RULED THE TT

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Soichiro Honda re­tired in 1973 but con­ducted a world tour in 1974, which in­cluded a visit to the Isle of Man. Honda had first raced there in 1959 and won the man­u­fac­turer’s award in the 125cc class (on the bike be­low), de­spite scor­ing a best solo fin­ish of sixth, but it was the start of the com­pany’s fas­ci­na­tion with the TT. In 1961 Honda won the 125 and 250 TTS with Mike Hail­wood on board.
