Honda Off-road Fun

Take our word for it: The quiet exhaust from an x50r is nothing compared to the ear-wrenching thump-thump that pours out of their personal stereo headphones. The little Zee-fifty, with its low seat and automatic clutch, has been a favorite for introducing youngsters to the world of off-road fun for nearly three decades.

New for 1997, Honda's xr70r is a pocket-sized ticket to off-road fun. Perfect for the entry-level off-road rider, the xr70r's wide-ratio three-speed transmission and automatic clutch make it easy to operate, and versatile too.

When they're ready for something bigger, the xr80r is set up just like one of our championship-winning XR's, but with smaller wheels and a 28-inch seat height to suit young inseams.

Or take a look at the xr100r. Big enough for large kids and even for smaller adults, it's also just about the ultimate first-time motorcycle. And we can guarantee that young riders won't outgrow this bike soon.

Finally, we come to our xr200r. A great choice for recreational riders, it's got the ground clearance, full-sized wheels, and riding position that fit a standard-issue Homo sapien, and a low 33.5-inch seat height, too!
