Has Retro Bike Fever Reached Honda?

We’ve heard rumors that Honda is planning to join Triumph and Ducati in producing modern recreations of famous bikes from the past.  Triumph’s line of retro-bikes, such as the Bonneville and Scrambler, have been good sellers for the British company, and Ducati’s Sport Classics are also doing well.  Honda may attempt to cash in on the nostalgia factor by building a new CB750 looking like the original that set the motorcycle world on its ear back in 1969.

The rumor mill suggests the new-old bike will even have an air-cooled engine.  It will be interesting to see how Honda makes a 4 cylinder air-cooled motor that passes modern noise and emissions regulations while still giving that cool retro look.
