Honda Type-R Lineup at Motegi Museum

In the Honda Collection Hall, approximately 350 restored motorcycles, automobiles, power products, and racing machines are on display.

Opened at Twin Ring Motegi in March 1998, the Honda Collection Hall was established to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the company. In the words of the company founder, Soichiro Honda, “Products don’t lie. If a product is really good, it will succeed. What did we at Honda intend when we created our products? We should only present what we created.Our products speak the truth about Honda.” The Honda Collection Hall offers an opportunity to encounter these products. It is a place, we believe, alive with the history and the memories of the people who have used and loved Honda products. We invite you to take your time and enjoy your visit to the Honda Collection Hall.
