The Dream 305 motorcycle followed in the footsteps of the Super Cub and was also enjoying healthy sales by the mid Sixties. Like the Super Cub, it was light and easy to handle. Its 305 cc overhead-cam twin-cylinder engine gave the bike a top speed of almost 160 km/h (100 mph).
It could be dressed up with saddlebags, luggage racks, and a windshield to increase its usefulness both as a commuter and a touring bike.
The reaction of the rest of the cycling manufacturers toward the Super Cub and the Dream should have been one of alarm. Instead, they thought of Honda as just another scooter company.
