The Honda 70 is a sma fower stroke, sma capacity motorcycle produced since 1970 bi Honda.

Introduced tae compete against rival twa stroke sma capacity motorcycles, the Honda 70 was one of the world's first four-stroke, small capacity motorcycles, with an engine displacement of only 72 cm³. This motorcycle wis in fact a "Honda C 70" but models frae 1970 tae 1983 wur released an kent as "Honda 70"s, as the logo “Honda 70” [1] appeared on the side covers o the bike.

The Honda 70 is very cheap to operate with typical fuel economy of 40 miles (64 km) per litre. A solid, reliable an a vera practical commuter, this bike affered 50 cm³ economy wi the pouer o a 70 cm³ bike. In Belgium an Brazil this model made Honda vera popular. In Asie, epecially Pakistan, Honda awes its huge success tae this model.

In Pakistan it earned the nickname "Rocket" for its ability tae climb vera steep roads wi considerable loads for its vera sma ingine capacity, where rival twa strokes uisually failed. This motorcycle came fittit wi a triangular speedometer[2] wi gear range markins an a maximum calibration o 60 mph (96 km/h), which the bike coud actually reach, providin the rider wi the psychological thrill o watchin the needle pointin at maximum calibration on the speedometer. The claimed top speed wis 53 mph (85 km/h). The ingine wis constantly upgradit an modified. In 1984 the bike wis released as Honda CD 70.
