A Little History:
The CD 70 was introduced to compete against rival 2-Stroke small capacity motorcycles, The Honda CD70 was one of the world,s 4-Stroke, small capacity motorcycles, with an engine displacement of only 72cm³.
This Motorcycle was infact a "Honda C70" but models that were from 1970 to 1983 were known as "Honda 70"s, as the logo “Honda 70” appeared on the side covers of the bike.
The Honda CD 70 is very cheap to operate with typical fuel economy of 64 km/Litre (40 miles).
A solid, reliable and a very practical commuter, this bike offered 50 cm³ economy with the power of a 70 cm³ bike.
In Belgium and Brazil this model made Honda very popular.
In Asia, especially Pakistan, Honda owes its huge success to this model.
In Pakistan it earned the nickname " Rocket" for its abiltiy to climb steep roads with considerable loads for its very small engine capacity where rival 2-Strokes usually failed. This motorcycle came with an analogue speedometer with gear range markings and the claimed top speed was 90km/h (53mph)
The engine was constantly upgraded and modified.
In 1984 the bike was released as Honda CD70.
