The Honda brand became synonymous with reliable and innovative engineering. The company’s motorcycle division registered a tremendous sales increase and during the 1970′s and Honda became the world’s largest motorbike maker.
Its production of cars however, that had started during the 60′s was rather slow. Honda cars failed to impress the average American driver. The reason: having been designed for the Japanese market, the small-sized cars were a huge contrast to the large vehicles favored by Americans.
