Honda Engine Room: best of 2017

It’s been a brilliant year for Honda. The Fireblade was named ‘Sportsbike of the Year’, the Type R: ‘Car of the Year’. We won the MotoGP. And the MXGB. And Indianapolis 500. We stole the show at Goodwood, set a world record at the Nurburgring and debuted not one, but 29 new Honda vehicles at EICMA, TMS and Motorcycle Live. In fact, it’s been such a great year that we’ve had to compile a ‘best of’ list just to make sense of it all.
