Motorcycle Glossary Dictionary Term - Hondamatic

Hondamatic: Riders of motorcycles are used to shifting gears and using a clutch. However, some new riders would like to do away with shifting and clutching since they may have become used to automatic transmissions in cars. They often ask if they can buy an Automatic motorcycle. Well, in the late '70s and early '80s, Honda made an Automatic. They called it the Hondamatic. Honda made the CB750A Hondamatic from 1976-1978. They produced the Hawk Hondamatic in 1978. For 1979-1981, Honda produced the CM400A Hondamatic. Finally, in 1982-1983, Honda made the CM450A Hondamatic.

Lately, you can get an automatic on the Boss Hoss or Ridley.
