Howard were motorcycles produced between 1905 and 1907, by an engineering firm of that name in Coalville, Leicestershire.
A small number of machines were made with a horizontal engine located above the pedalling bracket and below the lower fuel-tank rail, that was claimed to have fuel injection rather than a carburettor. This was probably a form of controlled and adjustable drip feed - just one of the many different arrangements then in use to mix the air and fuel for an engine.
