When the new-for-1975 Honda GL1000 was introduced, it was the world’s first mass production water-cooled, shaft-driven flat-four motorcycle. Evolutionary and revolutionary, it employed proven practices in an entirely new package.

One of those practices was water cooling, up to then seen on only a few motorcycles, including the classic 2-stroke Scott and Suzuki’s GT750 2-stroke triple. The Honda GL1000 was a hit, with some 100,000 sold in the U.S. during the model’s 1975-1979 production run.

Honda followed the GL1000 with the 1980-1983 GL1100. Slightly larger and with more creature comforts, the GL1100 was mechanically very similar to the GL1000 and continued the GL’s reputation for solid engineering and bulletproof reliability.
