The Honda CB550 was a standard motorcycle part of the CB series in Honda's range, a series that included motorcycles of different displacement engines. The first CB550 introduced in 1974 was also known as the CB550K0.

In 1978, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer launched the Honda CB550F2, a naked machine that replaced the CB550F, also known as the F1, and introduced an additional flash decal on the fuel tank and removed the fork gaiters.

In addition, the 1978 Honda CB550F2 came with standard features, such as chromed engine covers, a one-piece dual seat with a passenger grab handle, a chromed exhaust system, a wide handlebar, a black-finished steel frame, a round headlight with a chromed ring, a center stand, and wire-spoked wheels.

The bike was built around a double-cradle tubular steel frame that housed a 35 mm telescopic fork on the front and preload-adjustable dual shock absorbers on the rear for optimum suspension performance.

In the braking department, the Honda CB550K packed a single 270 mm disc with a hydraulic caliper on the front wheel and a drum braking unit on the rear wheel that offered optimum stopping power.

As for the power figures, the 1978 Honda CB550F2 had at its core a 544cc four-stroke four-cylinder air-cooled engine fitted with four Keihin carburetors and delivered an output power of 50 hp at 8,500 rpm and 43 Nm (32 lb-ft) of torque at 7,400 rpm.
