Honda CL750 Scrambler

David Edwards— Honda’s important motorcycles? Tough but the Super Hawk 305 and Scrambler 305 to be in the conversation. These were the two put Honda on the big-bike map in the mid-1960s, more than a match for 500s of the day.

U.S. can find out more about the Scrambler in the February issue of magazine, out soon. (And if you to see Cobra’s Honda street version, inspired by Bubba RS750, head over to our page .)
