Exports of motorcycles to developing countries increased dramatically during the 1970s, consistent with the growth of Southeast Asia's economies. Consumers in that region wanted practical motorcycles that could handle multiple passengers and overloading.

In order to meet the growing needs of this region, Honda exported the CS90 model with four-cycle OHC in January 1968, and then the CB100 in September 1969. In contrast, the company's competitors were exporting two-stroke, 100-cc models. Due to a lack of proper maintenance - a condition unique to that part of the world - Honda was losing ground to other manufacturers. In response, Honda developed a model featuring its new OHV engine, exporting it as the S110 in March 1973. The real problem, however, was not so easily solved.

In May 1974, in order to conduct thorough research in actual markets under real-world conditions, Takeshi Inagaki, who was in charge of creating motorcycles for developing countries, and Einosuke Miyachi, the man in charge of design, left Japan from Haneda International Airport. They spent a month watching motorcycle users in major cities throughout Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Iran, and Pakistan. What they saw, though, was beyond anything they could have imagined.
