Honda first introduced the XR350R in 1983 as a middleweight alternative to its small displacement dirtbikes and larger thumpers. Thanks to a diet and a new semi-double cradle chrome-moly frame, the XR350 shaved 24 pounds off the prior year’s XR250. In their review, Cycle World said, “At last. A four-stroke enduro bike that can win.”

The all-new 339cc 4-stroke engine utilized Honda’s RFVC (Radial Four Valve Combustion) chamber and two carbs to produce 22 horsepower. The engine was paired with an unusual-for-the-time six-speed transmission.

Suspension duties were handled by Showa, and the gas tank held 3.2 gallons. The XR was available in just one color option: Flash Red with yellow number plates.

This example is VIN: JH2NE0109DM000235. The seller purchased the bike through an auction here on Iconic Motorbikes!
