It's grandpa vs grandson this time. They might have 45 years between them, but they’re essentially the same motorcycle aimed at the same buyer. The real question is - have motorcycles gotten better or worse?

  • One thing I don't understand about new street bikes is all the space above the rear wheel. It makes sense on a dirt bike, where you need huge rear suspension travel, but not on the road.

  • No one bought the cb350 twin, because the cb400-4 was better.

  • Great vid and comparo, Can confirm. I've got a '74 CL450 in the shed, it's got so much chrome, sparkly paint and is lovely to look at, I would never sell it. I'm pretty sure the chassis is made of high tensile licorice, and is filled with lead. It's fine in a straight line and wide single radius corners, but I'd hate to get in an emergency situation with it. I'm in my 50's now, so I grew up riding these sort of bikes, but give me a modern bike to ride any day. I've also got a '19 CB500x, while not being a land speed record holder, it's comfortable, handles well and returns 450klm to the tank. It just does everything really well. P.S. The old CL always gets the attention when I'm out on it.

  • Riding an old bike compared to a new bike is just like driving a new car compared to an old car. There's no comparison, new stuff is so much better.

  • It wouldn't take much to make the old CB 360 a much better handling bike, improved brakes, better springs and shocks, better tyres, stuff that people still do to new bikes to this day. Once all that plastic starts to degrade and the engine management system goes on the CB 300, it is more or less scrap metal (or plastic), furthermore, if it was left in a barn for 20 years to rot, you would have very little chance of getting the 300 going again, the 360's simplicity is its beauty.

  • You’re a wonderful story teller mate. You simplify so much of the technicalities. Honda have now launched the CB 350 which is an aesthetically similar motorcycle to the CB 360 T in this video. A retro classic with modern electronics and a lot of metal and chrome on it. 181 kgs of kerb weight. I hope you can get to review it someday.

  • I am a 70s rider with a modern bike. In 5 years my Honda 750 will probably only trade in for $1,000 whereas a classic 750 will most likely have gone up in value. In those 5 years the running and dealer servicing costs on my Honda will have cost me $2,500 at current rates. Tyres, oils, filters and servicing costing more then the classic machine. The newer Honda also taking more time to service, due to all the plastic that has to be removed and then replaced. Finally the modern bike is actually 20kg heavier and a pig to get on the mainstand.

  • I used to ride the 250 version back in the 70s, a nice solid well engineered motorcycle, however the points ignition, carbs that need balancing and adjustment, camchain tensioner issues and corrosion risk in old fuel tanks means I would go for the new baby, its stylish, nice and light, I have dated girls that weight more than that motorcycle !! and the bonus of ABS alongside linked brakes front to rear means, along with improved lighting, I might live longer, but then I prefer to travel and enjoy the ride rather than polish and fiddle nice review I enjoyed it even the blackboard stuff which is way above my pay grade for a 62 year old knucklehead like me

  • As someone who graduated from high school in 1975, it warms my heart to see a bike that age in such nice condition and getting a fair comparison. Another thing is that air cooled engine will need a rebuild at about 15,000 miles while my liquid cooled 2008 is just warming up at 20,000. Better control of the engine's temperature means internal clearances can be much tighter. The old air cooled ones had to be a bit sloppy right off the showroom floor.

  • A big difference is the variety of bikes offered at a Honda dealer nowadays vs. back then. Back then, the 360 might have been one of 4 or 5 bikes whereas nowadays there are easily dozens of available Hondas (I am including the variants like ones with ABS and the ones without not to mention the expanded line of offroad vehicles available). Heck, for a beginner, wanting something more than a Grom, if one has a bit of experience with two-wheelers (e.g. dirtbikes) one could step up to the CB500 or choose the CRF250L dual-sport if one planned on riding dirt roads and such.
