What better bike to name Best Standard than a re-interpretation of the one that launched a thousand container ships across the Pacific? Honda's modern take on its original '69 CB750 isn't incredibly fast, terribly sporty or amazingly cutting-edge, but that's what makes it a Standard: The new CB's a bike you just hop on like you used to do, especially when you've got no particular place to go. Nostalgic it might be and a feast for some eyes, but it's also a super-functional, easy-to-ride and cheap-to-keep motorcycle.
