The Honda 70 is a small four stroke motorcycle made since 1970 by Atlas Honda.

Introduced to compete against rival two-stroke small capacity motorcycles, the Honda 70 had an engine displacement of 72 cc (4.4 cu in). This motorcycle was called the Honda CD70E, but models from 1970 to 1983 were called the Honda 70, with a Honda 70 logo on the side covers.

The Honda 70 had a rectangular speedometer with gear range markings and a maximum calibration of 60 mph (97 km/h). The claimed top speed was 58 mph (93 km/h).[citation needed] The engine was constantly upgraded and modified. In 1984, the bike was released as the Honda CD70. It had a variety of changing logo stickers, and in 2012, there were changes in the shape of engine, carburettor and rear signals which were moved lower, near the rear light. This differentiated the 70 from other local brands of bikes that were copying its design.[citation needed]
