The CB550 is considered to be the smaller cousin to Honda's CB750. The exhaust system was a 4-into-4. The engine was a 544cc SOHC wet sump inline four linked to a 5-speed transmission. The serial number began CB550-1000001.
The CB550F was the largest factory boring of the smaller block, air-cooled, 4 cylinder, single over-head cam motorcycles made by Honda during the mid- to late 1970s. The block of the CB550 was similar in appearance to, but considerably smaller than, the heavier casting of the CB750. These motorcycles had two stock gauge and exhaust configurations. The early models had a single gauge cluster and four individual exhaust tubes, each with its own muffling elements. The "Super Sport" model, featured a dual gauge cluster (with a separate speedometer and tachometer) and a stock 4-into-1 header.
