For just one year, Honda made 2,000 examples of the 125cc twin specifically designed for US rider’s education schools. They were never issued titles on a condition of the trainers as a gift were that they be destroyed after their use. Honda distributed these training bikes as a marketing strategy to introduce motorcycles and specifically Honda motorcycles to individuals learning in hopes their first purchase of a bike would be a Honda. One example resides at he AMA Motorcycle Museum in Ohio.
