Vintage CB360T vs Modern CB300R - Motorcycle Evolution Test

It's grandpa vs grandson this time. They might have 45 years between them, but they’re essentially the same motorcycle aimed at the same buyer. The real question is - have motorcycles gotten better or worse?

I still ride my 36 year old Honda cmx250 around town sometimes. But only because of the availability of low cost Chinese replacement parts.

Few months ago I got a used RE Interceptor 650. I guess that's what RE did with the bike. Old school performance in today's budget. Fairly simple motorcycle with modern touches being just EFI, ECU, and disc brakes with ABS. Performance close to the KTM 390s, but priced closed as well.

Why would a pay $5k for cheap 300cc starter bike when I can get something used for wayy less? Just bought a 1996 Monster 600 with 7k miles for 3 grand.

I am from those good old days. While the CB360 was a very good, reliable bike the 2 stroke 350 / 400 Japanese bikes had it licked for performance. When the Honda CB400/4 came along it was a different story, H was back in the game.

One thing you've forgotten: Grandson has loansharks around every Cafe Latte waiting to finance him that $5K so he can be indebted to (ultimately) Uncle Sam (or whatever your country's Uncle Shyster is) so he can be better controlled. Free thinking and free living is getting rare. This young gentleman gives this old fart hope it's still possible.

I owned a 1975 CB360T. It was a nice ride. 165 KPH could be achieved maybe going down the side of a mountain. The little 360 didn't have much power above 60 MPH. 12000 rpm? If I remember right the red line was about 5000. That being said it was a fun bike to ride around. I still like the sound of a parallel twin. I too would take the 1975 over the 2020 bike.

7:00 ya ya ya..... its better.... i know . but SPOKE WHEELS FOR LIFE!!!! they just look so damn good!!! . and the old drums are better than most people think if it can lock up the tire at 80mph.... it doesnt need anymore braking power . sure... after one hard stop.... they will be HOT and not want to stop a 2nd time but after that "OH SH!T" moment.... your probably going to take a short break.... before you ride home at WAY slower speeds LOL . drums with ABS would stop just as quick as that modern bike its just when you want to stop more than once.... than drums show their limits . . and despite the tube tires.... (required for that AWESOME spoke look) you can buy modern tires that are just as grippy.... . might be more expensive and harder to find..... but they are out their . if i can get new "trail-sport" tires for my 74 kawi G5 100cc 2 smoker you can find some nice street tires for your honda CB series bike

9:30 id rather have an air cooled bike... . it might not make as much power..... but ya dont have to worry about leaks (and the maintenance cost is lower) . a properly designed air cooled engine (with the correct fuel/air mix) WILL NOT overheat.... even in 110F weather

I always say you cannot beat old technology where new technology breaks old technology thrives. New bikes you have to get towed, old bikes you can fix on the side of the road and get riding again. I ride a 1987 Suzuki intruder 1400 where all my buddies ride new age cruisers and I have had no problems and I have fixed all myself. My buddies have spent 1000’s of dollars to get theirs fixed. Modern people go for modern look, older people go for older reliability of tried and true tech. People are definitely more about aesthetics these days than they are reliability and sometimes performance. But needless to say all the comparing is speculation to the person buying the bike and riding because it could also depend on the experience of the rider as to how the bike works.

Fun fact if you look into some of the overseas manufacturers in China or taiwan, for example the genuine motor company, they make a bike that's almost exactly the same as that cb300 for just a few grand, it would be very interesting to see your cb360 versus the genuine motor company 400c

Another excellent video. This guy is going somewhere. And it's not just from Edmonton to Vancouver. I have one knit to pick. PLASTIC. I tire of those who brag about the metal content of their bike while putting down plastic. Yes, chrome is shiny - when it's been shined. That's about all it's good for. I prefer plastic: it's lighter, it's cheaper, you repair it by replacing it, it requires no maintenance, it doesn't rust, doesn't need painting - or repainting, you don't have to polish it - just wash it off, and I suspect it's easier on the environment to produce and recycle. So let's drop bragging about how much metal is in our bikes and let's hear it for PLASTIC!

for 4000$ more you get hella a lot of shit you can't repair if it fails, and that generally is manufactured to fail. If you leave me the choice, keep the new hi tech crap, i want to drive, not to work permanently. Now, some people wonder why I react that way. The answer is simple, i run a bike repair shop. I use an old ZX11 stage2, with a set of Mikuni racing carbs and close to 200 Hp. No rain setting, cruising or sport, no traction control, it's a quarter turn, all or nuts. Maybe a bit too much of it for the rookies. But i live with that, I drove such things in 1969, I still drive those things today. Maybe I am a bit old fashion, who knows.

Great video, I remember that 1975 bike. Honda sold a 125cc for local use that looked similar and is like the bikes now sold in Asia. A motorcycle does not need a huge engine to be fast or fun.

You’re comparing apples and oranges. The 1975 median household is quite different from that of 2020. Median household income is a bad proxy for median individual income (individuals buy motorcycles, not households) because the median household has shrunk overtime.

Agreed. The only thing I’ve seen close is the Janus guys but that’s far from cheap. I, literally, want an old CB at old CB prices.

This was a great video, and I totally agree with the statement about getting the next generation of motorcyclists into the sport. This is where the Chinese manufacturers are gaining momentum. They're using old reliable, and cheap technology to build bikes at 1/4 of the cost. If they could up their quality control, they'd be a force to be reckoned with.

Recently bought a 225cc Chinese dual sport delivered to my house in a box. Tech of the bike is 1975 to 1980's with the exception of fuel injection and an O2 sensor. 14 horse/pony power, top speed 62mph or 100kph. Certainly not a race bike but seems robust enough to be depended on. All for just under $2k. I get it.

I had a 75 Honda CB500T that was similar to the 360 here. It was a good basic bike but had lots of vibration. Occasionally, the tag would vibrate off. I love the classic twin cylinder look but I'd certainly be willing to try the new one. I bet it's fun to ride. I've had a 97 Valkyrie for the last 10 years and think it's about the best bike ever built.

Don't be fooled peeps, the market around drilled, slotted or wavy discs is pure BS. When was the last time you saw these on a MotoGP bike (regardless of material)? This is pure physics, if you don't understand go back to school. Otherwise another typically great presentation from FortNine.

I agree, and feel like 2003 was the best year for motorcycle old/new compromise of all you said. Most young (?) ?millenials aren't into motorcycles. Harley have messed it up in North America with that whole macho/gang image; and because of that fewer people who're not Harley's demographic are riding. They're bicycle or ebike riding, not ICE riding.Motorcycles are better than ever, but you're riding a fly-by-wire F-35, not Spitefire anymore, or even a Sabrejet. Somethings been lost, and the old bike still have that. Anyhow your choice of music and editing are fabulous! Great video.

A Honda 360 like that was the first bike I ever bought. I purchased it second hand from a guy down the block with the ink practically still drying on my learners permit. Cost me $200 and I drove the heck out of it all through High School for less than 5 bucks a week in gas.

From personal experience anything built from the 1960's to end of the 1980's you can't go wrong. Simpler, easier to fix, more durable and with less "technology" that is more hassle than it's worth at times. From cars, to mowers, to snowblowers, to motorcycles, stereo receivers, can't beat the old stuff most of the time. There are exceptions though..
