When you compare all the amazing machines and how much they have changed within the past 100 years, it is no wonder why the motorcycles on this list are the most iconic motors of the century. With such minor changes to major improvements, these bikes were able to change the course of motor reputation.
Check out the five most iconic motorcycles of all time.
1973 Honda CR250 Elsinore
As Hondo’s CR250 Elsinore wasn’t the first motorcycle for off-road racing, it was the most reliable and budget-friendly option at the moment. The motorbike was named about the epic Elsinore Grand Prix and appeared to be fresh from the shop with the polished aluminum gas tank, lightweight chrome frame, and plastic fenders.
1980 Honda GL1100 Gold Wing Interstate
As Hondo’s Gold Wing became the modern luxury concept motorcycle, it is what revolutionized the motor on the market. The large 1100xx 4 engine and interstate frame mounted fairing set the new standard for motorcycle integrations.
1983 Honda VF750F V45 Interceptor
With its major debut in 1979, the Honda 1983 came with a liquid cooled v4 engine, pro-link rear suspension, 16-inch wheels, and modern Anti-dive control form. While the NR500 might have the least successful of its kind, it is what inspired the V45 Interceptor to become what it is today. Above all – it also became the best seller as Japan’s first real repli-racer in history.
1985 Suzuki GSX-R750
As the early sports bikes were once overpowered with worthless brakes and squeaking suspensions, the Suzuki GXS-R750 is the one motorbike that changed all that. From the racer lights with the world championship winning racer modifications, the sports bike represented everything you would want to see on a motorcycle.
1994 Ducati 916
With more innovative motorcycles that sold better or sped faster, only a few will argue about the beauty of the 1994 Ducati 916. As the masterpiece of Massimo Tamburino, the motorcycle speaks of brilliant details with an iconic design. Whether it may be the cat eye headlights or the under seat exhaust, this motorcycle of the 90’s, is still one of the top designs to this day.
