Description

The CB77 had only 305cc, a relatively big engine in comparison to most other Japanese bikes of the period, although it had performance to rival much larger motorcycles from other countries. It quickly built a reputation for reliability and was equipped with luxuries such as an electric starter. The engine on the CB77 differed from that of the touring C77 version, in that the crankpins on the crankshaft were spaced 180 degrees apart. This had the benefit of making the engine smoother at higher revs due to the firing sequence.
The CB77 was built on the experience Honda had gained in Grand Prix racing and differed greatly from previous models. It had a steel-tube frame instead of the pressed frames of earlier Hondas and a telescopic front fork. The parallel twin engine, the biggest then available in a Honda, was an integral element of the bike's structure, providing stiffness in a frame that had no downtube, and was capable of 9,000 rpm. It could propel the bike at over 100 mph: as fast as British parallel twins with higher displacements, and with great reliability. Cycle World tested its average two-way top speed at 104.6 mph, and its 1⁄4 mi time at 16.8 seconds reaching 83 mph.
Author Aaron Frank called it, "the first modern Japanese motorcycle... that established the motorcycle that we still operate under now, more than forty years later.
