The model of the retro-classic motorcycle Honda CB223S was first presented at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. The motorcycle is the "little brother" of Honda CB400SS, having common visuals and layout, but based on the base model Honda FTR 223 2nd generation. The Honda CB223S is positioning itself as a simple, cheap classic motorcycle aimed at both pure urban use and riding on hard dirt roads.

The Honda CB223S model lasted until 2016, after which it was officially announced that production would be discontinued.
