Some motorcycle news in the 1969 - 1970 year of manufacture is as follows:
In 1970 Yamaha introduces their first 4 stroke motorcycle model, the SX-1 with a 650cc vertical twin. Honda unveils the CB750 at the Tokyo Motor Show in late 68 but it didn't hit the market until 1969, this was the first modern mass market four and the first mass market bike to come with a disc brake. The CB750 was made with a sand cast engine and not die cast until way up until 1970 and these are highly prized by collectors today. KTM begins producing their own engines, previously most of their dirt bikes had been equipped with Sachs motors, KTM also developed a new 250cc motocross bike. Harley Davidson sells out to AMR which was an ill advised move since the quality of the bikes suffered greatly under the ownership of American Machine and Foundry Company.
