Driver-friendliness has been one of the driving forces in automotive engineering since the 1950s. The Hondamatic was Honda's answer to the increasing demand for automatic transmissions in automobiles and, in a technologically distinct sense, in motorcycles. The transmission makes use of sliding gears mounted on parallel axes, eschewing the more typical planetary gears. It also features a torque converter that eliminates the need for the hydraulics so pervasive in other automatic transmission models. The motorcycle Hondamatic used in Honda's motorcycles is a distinct machine, which, while it requires no clutch, does necessitate that the driver select gears manually. It is also a two-speed rather than a three-speed transmission. You can find models like the Hondamatic 750 on eBay where qualified sellers with inventories of automobile parts offer various affordable and reliable shipping options. You can purchase a used or refurbished Hondamatic to use in a restoration project or for routine maintenance on a car or motorcycle. While it may no longer be at the head of its field, it remains a landmark piece of technology.
