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?

This is what Royal Enfield Is doing precisely , selling modern motorcycle at legacy pricing.

The sales success of the Royal Enfield 650 should be making the other manufacturers realise that many of us want a basic motorbike and don't give a toss about a digital dash, keyless ignition or Bluetooth connect-ability.

I love your work!! Great video. In terms of cheap bikes though, I looked at a Suzuki GSX 125 as my LAMS bike to get my licence on. Here in New Zealand, that about NZ$3500 + on road costs, so is it that there ARE cheaper bikes now to deliver what the old CB360T was for? A starter bike?
Andrew Mack
Andrew Mack Prieš 9 val
In most countries around that time the 360 wasn't considered a starter bike. A big bike was generally a 500-750cc and starter bikes were up to 250, but there where plenty of 125, 150, 175, 185 and 200cc alternatives. Here in the UK you needed a full licence to ride anything bigger than 250 then... now it's 125 like most of Europe i believe.

Having bought my first bike, a used 1961 Honda 50 Sport in 1963, I can attest to the allure of the old bikes that are like a time machine with one's memory. They were heavier, did not perform like today's bikes, and were not technological marvels. What they were was an inexpensive purchase for any kid who had some means of income, such as I did with my paper route. They were cheap to maintain and operate, .25 cents for a gallon of gasoline and what caught the eye of any young male, they were gorgeous to look at. The early Japanese bikes and Brit bikes were visually very appealing, something I can't say about most of what if offered today. What is with the trend from most models to do away with the rear fender? It is as if the designer stopped for lunch and someone picked up the prints before he was finished and sent them to production. The new bikes look unbalanced without a proper rear fender and not some plastic wheel hugger. I love the looks of the new Kawasaki W800, the new Bonnevilles, Suzuki TU250, or any new bike that rides (and stops) like a technologically advanced machine of today but looks like the bikes of my youth! I would love to see BMW resurrect the late 80's R100RT, same frame, same looks, ABS and fuel injection and a price that is appealing and affordable to the average working man. Keep up the good work with your videos, I love them.

I'm not in the slightest a bike person, I have no hate at all for them, just not my cup of tea - though that said I've considered learning simply as another "life skill" to have. That aside, as one from the other side of the fence (car person), I look at both bikes and would choose the old one with out hesitation, it has nothing to do with quality or older is better - it's that visually, it looks far less intimidating! - I say again that based on looks alone and the actual experience could prove very different. In any case, thought I'd share my 2 bob. I'm 34 and daily a V8 station wagon.

While they might be far less reliable and need constant maintenance the old British twins has such personality that modern bikes lack. To hell with tft screens. I like dials on my dash. Carbs always worked, no EFI pumps to fail.

I'm an older Canadian rider (I bought my first street bike in 1976). I learned motorcycle mechanics by tinkering on my Suzuki GT380 in my parent's driveway. I'm picking up a new Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 in the chrome finish (Mr. Clean) this spring. It's my 10th street bike. I paid the equivalent of a mid-size dirt bike for it. I've been waiting for someone to build a street bike like the GT for years. I'm so tired of the overly-complex "insect-look" of most of today's motorcycles, with their captured seats, hideous lines, multi-angled bodywork, and boring colour choices. The simple, classic look of the GT 650 is spectacular, IMHO. Well done RE. ....and a person with basic mechanical knowledge can adjust the valve clearances in an hour, using common hand tools.

i cant help but notice that you did not mention emisiions and fuel economy . Sure no bike rider cares about either of those but i am sure Honda does since it cant sell bikes that do not meet the criteria , which are getting stricter wit hevery year .Sure ol mate CB 360T seems better built with its chrome and all the other points you ponted out but lets be hones here . Chrome is extremely bad for the envioroment , the process is terribly poluting , Plastic is not much better but at least it can be recicled forever .Newer bikes ARE better ,we just have to accept the sacrifice we need to make in order to keep the planet a human friendly envioroment ( and we are not doing that too well even with all the drawbacks thus far )

Even though I get your point, I'd still get the newer bike...but then again I'm not a novice rider. I do sometimes muddle over the Royal Enfield Interceptor, but needing an all-around multi purpose bike with offroad capabilities, and only getting to afford 1 bike, I'd opt for a KLR650(or its equivalent). Great video as usual......

i used to ride a 1976 Honda CB350 that my dad had kind of abandoned. i didn't have a licence and drove the absolute hell out of it, putting 1000 miles on in one summer. i dropped it twice on wet grass, burning a beautiful banana shaped scar on each of my calves. you've inspired me to buy it back and restore it. maybe i'll even get my licence.

Watched this for the second time today, great presentation. I was a mechanic and service manager, smack in the middle of the '70s, medium weight Japanese twins were a lot of bread and butter for our business. We had the Suzuki GS400 and the Kawasaki KZ400. Both models went on to refinements that made them better each year. Honda dealers weren't nearby but we knew they too had a good product. Would enjoy any of those machines today as my own. Edit: How many here recall the tool kits of the early larger Hondas ('62 - '66)? They included tire levers and touch up paint, I think perhaps patch kits too for some time. I still have some Honda tool kit items from that era, mostly pliers which are as good as any commercial ones I ever used.

New bikes are awesome, the technology is amazing, but there's something about old school bikes that you cannot replace, I have a ZRX 1100, a Voyager 1200, but I also have my pride and joy 1979 KZ1000 which I feel is the best out of the three that I own because of its charm and the fact that it's a simple bike no computer no electronics turn the key on press the button and it goes all the time for 41 years it's been doing that and I love it and there's nothing like old School

300cc at that time was a bike that you could expect/ supposed to live with. There wasn't the vast array of 100~ or 100hp+ bikes around that there is now. 350cc now is a stepping stone to a bigger bike it's not an end destination and it's never intended as such especially in the west so I don't know if this is really an apt comparison. I don't know if there is really a sub 60hp bike that fills that role or space in the market now in the way this old 300 did. most bikes below that are in the west sold as beginner bikes and will have quality you'd expect from that. Not to say they'll be unreliable. I'm sure they're fine but they're just not made to do the same things. If you're looking at place in the market and bike that most would buy as a bike to use not as a stepping stone surely you have to start looking at at least the CB500s and if not that then the MT-07s.

I so appreciate his/your ability to think out of the box. The comment about politicians (all of them I hope), and the conclusion about "simple bikes for less, rather than unnecessarily complicated - for same or more". Not many are able to think this way. But hopefully someday this kind of mentality will be common. Peace.

Contrary to some other commentators, I think the new Honda will last just fine, thanks largely to water cooling, just keep changing the oil. From my own Honda experience, I would expect some electrical problems, but these are usually cheap to fix if you have a multimeter.

The old bike is quite similar to my RD 350 sold in India in the 80's. It was a case of too much too soon which eventually led to its death by 1990. Spares were an issue and then riders were not familiar with the 2 stroke that needs engine oil as well as transmission oil. Many departments had these bikes like the police but they would empty the engine oil reservoir and keep running effectively killing the engine. The other reason was the mileage, which wasn't much to talk about any way but cb points getting worn and the timing going bad could bring it down to 1/3 of the claimed figures. Are this bikes parts easily available as the indicators and some other things look quite the same.

grandpa didn't have to meet the same noise and exhaust emissions as grandson does. Which might be where that top speed that grandpa enjoys is coming from. Let grandson breathe better, and let him have stinkyer breath, he might have a higher top speed. And that's not to mention any safety rules put in to cap grandson's top speed since that bike is aimed at beginners. Grandpa could ride a bicycle without a helmet. Grandson has momma trying to make rules to ban everything now. But after all that, I have to give a medal to whoever's idea it was to use the old style camera viewfinder with the microprism focus indicator as a frame for the video 🥇

CB360 is cheaper in today's $ than today's bike because the volume sold was astronomical! Half the bikes on the road in the '70s -- like VW beetles -- were CB350/360s. Willowy frames/swingarms/forks, shocks with no damping, and cold plastic tires. I still have a head-to-shoulder twitch when thinking about mid-70s Japanese bikes back then. All I can say is, "I survived!"

I studied econ and I love this angle. I have always bought my bikes used because they are SO much cheaper, and I don't care enough about newer features to get anything all too modern. Unfortunately that means that despite all my love for Honda, they haven't seen a dime of my money. I'd love a good cheap bike that's just new, but not cutting edge advanced.

There is another factor that applies to these two bikes and most other bikes. All things being equal, if you buy these two bikes right now and ride them for ten years, at the end of the ten years the old bike will be worth the same- or more, and the new bike will have lost substantial value.

This is a great video. There are few riders who need the peaks of performance. There are lots of riders who would buy a brand new bike if it was cheaper and only met the old standards of performance.
