Universal Japanese Motorcycle

From CycleChaos

During the 1970s, the Japanese marques, such as Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha (Yamaha did deviate significantly from this trend with their three cylinder XS650 twin and XS750 triple), became so identified with the four-cylinder, standard-style motorcycle that this term was used to describe many bikes made by these Japanese manufacturers commonly known as the "Big Four".
