This model, which became known by the catch phrase "the white tank and the red engine," was praised for its layout, which prevented the exhaust from the 2-stroke engine and the oil from hitting the rider.
Honda's establishment of dealerships was also unique, and explosive sales of this motorcycle were achieved by sending the direct mailings to 55,000 bicycle shops all over Japan, thereby expanding the sales network in a single stroke.
