Honda, arguably the most versatile motorcycle manufacturer in the world, produced the charming little XR80 trail bike from 1979 to 2003, an impressively long time! It was powered by an air-cooled single cylinder single overhead camshaft engine. The transmission had five speeds and this 80cc wonder could reach a top speed one nudge below 50 miles per hour – 49! It weighed just 69.9kg and the fuel tank capacity was 6.9 litres. For the 1982 season the XR80 was available in only one colour, Tahitian Red, just like the three seasons before. (From 1983 to 1986 inclusive it came only in Flash Red, a more orangey hue. From 1987 to 1990 it was two-toned – Flash Red and Shasta White. Then until 1995 it was Shasta White and Rainbow Blue. The next two years brought Shasta White and Violet. The final two years of the Series I were Shasta White.)
