Happy Birthday, Mr. Honda - NR750 Promotional Video

To celebrate Soichiro Honda's 106th birthday, here's a promotional video for the amazing oval piston NR750.  Pure, undiluted, classic Honda engineering encapsulated in one incredible machine, it featured twin connecting rods per piston and 8 valves per cylinder.  This is the kind of unconventional genius that represents the Honda that we all love and miss.

And here's the best video I can find of one revving - skip to 1:10 for the goods.
