Honda has been the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer since 1959, as well as the world's largest manufacturer of internal combustion engines measured by volume, producing more than 14 million internal combustion engines each year.
Honda is the largest producer of engines for a reason, and their quality and dependability is why the company is number 1. As far as transmissions, I have no proof that their the best but trust me they are. For example, when the ninja 250 was compared to the CBR250 every article I read said the CBR transmission was better (probably just said smoother, but I would bet more dependable as well).
