Hosted by legendary comedian and “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno, the series explores our obsession with all things automotive. From classic cars to supercars and everything in-between, Jay is hitting the road to discover the most exciting, weird and wonderful vehicles ever made and meet the passionate people behind their wheels. Each one-hour themed episode features a mix of stunts, challenges, reviews, and celebrity interviews that showcases the colorful history of the automobile. Whether he’s exploring the story of an iconic brand, road-testing the newest super car, or investigating the latest automotive innovations, there is no wheel Jay won’t get behind to tell the story of our love affair with the car.
About Jay Leno: Acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, lovable TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…it’s no wonder that Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”

Just like the NSX, this is a breath taking, show stopping demonstration of Honda’s abilities. Beautiful, iconic, timeless and Honda engineering. Who else besides Toyota, among large manufacturers can do this? No one.

I remember reading about these when they came out and how badly I wanted one then. Such an incredibly gorgeous masterpiece of engineering. I've owned 3 third generation Magna V4 750's though, and carve canyons and the Tail of the Dragon with those and my KTM 790S. =D

I worked in a shop that sold these. Just for giggles I looked up the cost of dropping it in the parking lot. It was *astronomical*. Like 2k or so. Sure was a pretty thing though. Lovely design.

Imagine you let Jay Leno ride your bike and he crashes and dies because of something you did wrong when building it. Luckily Jay didn't crash when that front brake locked up or that triumph oil line broke free.

Interesting, and didn't realize these things had a trailing link front suspension. Though only 118 ponies on an 1800 cc bike might not be an awful lotta horsepower, but I'll bet the low end torque on these is totally awesome!

And that is Honda they built and lost money on a bike but for the love of the sport they built it anyway, remind you of the days of American hot rods and racers who modified them.

Honda in these days of 1/2 assed bikes gets a check /pass almost automatically. Would have loved to own a ruin but the money was not there, through out my teens I wanted a Gold Wing same deal but its still wonderful to see these bikes on the floor and watch and talk to those who have the scratch for them.

Even Runes as well as older Golwings do have problem with breaks. And nobody know how to solve that. Friend of mine have Rune also with this issue. What I understand from forums ist an illness of every piece.

I almost bought one of these a year ago. A local used bike dealer had about a dozen of them at the same time. Checked again during the summer and they were all gone. I’ll regret that hesitation for a long time.

Mr Leno, would you be interested in a 1980 Kawasaki 1300 Touring Edition bike??? (My wife says you can have it which quite surprised me ;-) It has an inline 6 cylinder engine perfect for your collection!!! I got old and am not able to wrestle it anymore so we purchased an 04 GoldWing (which weighs as much as the machine you're riding), and we love it!!! Safe travels sir :-)

It's a beautiful bike, no doubt... But in desperate need of a nose job. Get rid of that disgusting headlight. A simple round headlight would make this bike rideable. The rest of it is really well styled. rear end is top drawer.

SRK cycles are a good bunch of guys. They gave away a bike a few years back and that was a very cool thing to do. I wanted to win so bad I couldn’t think of anything else for 3 months. 🤣🤣 I love the Rune , it’s like no other motorcycle and is so darn beautiful. Thanks Jay!! Another awesome episode. ✌🏻🇺🇸EPK

Indeed, Jay, Honda has been the most capable motor company in the world. They won the Indianapolis 500 their second time there, as the whole world watched USAC deliberately keep their pace car on the track so long they had no choice but to pass it.

every time I hear people say it costs the company more money to make something than what they are charging for it I cringe. There us no way in hell it's true, these companies are out to make money not charity work. Jay is calculating the value of the bike by adding each individual part if you were to buy them from Honda and put the bike togather yourself, that not how it works.
