Soichiro Honda first created a piston ring company. Then developed into motorcycles, cars, and all sorts of combustion engines.

He focused on R&D so lots of radical ideas were implemented and tested in real world settings.

Did a little research. First Honda using oval pistons was 1979 NR500 GP motorcycle. Production for public sale was 1992 with 90 degree V-4 750cc for a paltry $50k. <!–nextpage–>
