Honda Motor Company Ltd. was founded in 1948. Soichiro Honda, whose dream was to bring reliable and low cost motor cycles to the masses started to build motor cycles to solve transport issues of the locals.

From a young age (7), Soichiro Honda had a great interest in automobiles. He worked as a mechanic at a Japanese tuning shop, where he tuned cars and entered them in races. A self-taught engineer, he later worked on a piston design eventually selling pstons to Toyota.

The Honda Company which once started off as a small venture of manufacturing small motorcycles have now grown into a giant manufacturing corporation with diversified products. Products of the Honda Company include motorcycles, cars, power tools and marine equipment etc.. Since 1986, Honda has been involved with artificial intelligence/robotics research and released their ASIMO robot in 2000. They have also ventured into aerospace with the establishment of GE Honda Aero Engines in 2004 and the Honda HA-420 HondaJet, scheduled to be released in 2011. Honda is the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles as well as the world's largest manufacturer of internal combustion engines measured by volume. Honda surpassed Nissan in 2001 to become the second-largest Japanese automobile manufacturer.

Honda's official slogan is "The Power of Dreams". They never used this slogan to sell their products. Mr. Honda's belief that well built products will sell themselves. Seven different Honda Logos represent corporate image of the Honda Company. These Honda logos are also the symbols of successful diversified products manufactured by Honda. The Honda “H” Logo is used for Honda Automobiles.
