There once was  a video on u tube that showed a Champion buzzing around with a Japananese  language song playing in the background .  During the song, Champion was said in Engish several times during what might be the chorus. I have wondered if the song was a 1960s , Bridgestone home market commercial.

I think you may be right Paul and that's what this record is. I remember that video as well.

So it's a home market commercial? Maybe their market power in Japan is what led the other manufacturers to pressure them out of the motorcycle business. Maybe the other manufacturers thought that four stroke technology from the Prince Motors side of the Bridgestone family would migrate to the motorcycles.
