Three stories of Honda history
The virtual tour of the museum is a reproduction of a visit in person, allowing us to dream as if we had truly traveled to the cradle of Honda to relive the company’s 70-year history through its most iconic products. Without leaving the sofa, we can tour the three floors of the museum and see a vast sample of the vehicles that marked Honda’s milestones.
The first floor visit begins its journey in the footsteps of its founders, Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fujisawa. The seeds of Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fujisawa’s effort, creativity and dreams bore fruit in the company’s emerging period in the years after World War II.
The second floor houses the sections of automobiles, motorcycles and various engines, where the 1963 S500 model stands out, the first car manufactured by Honda, which broke all barriers in Japan by incorporating the color red. As for motorcycles, no detail is missing either, and we will find such legendary models as the NR500 with oval pistons, the Africa Twin, the CB750 Four and other curiosities and motorcycles of true legend.
The third floor is dedicated to the sports side of Honda and you can see the cars, cars and motorcycles with which Honda has competed and competes. In this section pearls stand out that are especially emotional, such as one of the McLaren-Honda piloted by the Brazilian pilot Ayrton Senna , or the legendary RC166 world champion with Mike Hailwood and the NSR500 world champion with Mick Doohan.
In the Honda Collection Hall you can also enjoy interactive sections to get to know other Honda mobility products, such as the ASIMO robot or the first hydrogen fuel cell car, the FCX Clarity. And the smallest have reserved a space to make their own electric car. Although these areas are not currently available virtually.
The launch of the Honda Collection Hall responds to the company’s efforts to make Honda’s founding moment visible and put technology and mobility at the service of people’s well-being.
An origin that is located during the years immediately after the end of World War II, and in the youth of Soichiro Honda while he repaired bicycles to help in the family business. In order to achieve maximum speed on two wheels, Soichiro Honda applied an army engine to a bicycle, giving rise to the first prototype of the Dream Type D motorcycle. Two years later, in 1948, Honda Motor Company was founded.
