The Honda CB360 is a twin cylinder four-stroke motorcycle produced by Honda from 1974 to 1976. It succeeded the Honda CB350 and provided an alternative to the four cylinder CB350F and CB400F. The CB360 was a new design. The 356 cc engine was tuned for broad range torque, and drove the rear wheel through a six-speed gearbox. The base CB360 model was equipped with front and rear drum brakes, while the CB360t version had a front hydraulic disc brake.
An engine recall was made in April 1975 to address a design flaw with the cam chain tensioner that required a modified tensioner to be installed. The original tensioner could break leading to engine and rear wheel lockup.
Earlier models used rocker arm shafts that were fitted loose in the cylinder head cover. This allowed the shafts to rotate in the head cover and wear the socket. Honda released alternative rocker arm shafts that screwed in to the cylinder head cover to prevent the shafts from rotating.
