Connecting the British Triumph design to the Japanese Honda

Triumph Bonneville

The V-twin design of Harley Davidson has lasted in the marketplace, though the design is outmoded. The British vertical twin design, seen in the Triumph, BSA and Norton,
has lost favor. But the vertical twin design infleunced Japanese engineers such as Soichiro Honda. Their principal contribution to evolving technology is best seen in the Honda Cub, a 50 cc motor bike that is still being sold across the globe. It is cheap, fuel efficient, easy to repair and able to carry families or considerable loads. See the Honda Metropolitan scooter for the latest US version of the Cub 50.
