Although Honda originally built a name for itself as the producer of small 2-cycle motorbike engines, founder Soichiro Honda's first foray into automobiles in 1963 proved to be a huge turning point for the Japanese company. Now one of the largest car manufacturers in the world, Honda has earned a reputation across the globe as a respected maker of affordable high-quality vehicles. In the spirit of self-taught tinkerer Soichiro, Honda has managed to remain innovative throughout the years, operating on the forefront of hybrid technology, motorcycle design and even robotics.
