XR 80 Specificationsby John London
The Honda XR 80 is a single-cylinder four-stroke off-road motorcycle produced between 1979 and 2003. During the 24 years it was in production, the bike underwent numerous changes. Still, an 80 cc engine and a weight of about 150 lbs. remained standard in the XR 80 throughout the years, making it one of the lightest bikes ever produced by Honda.
The engine of the 2003 Honda XR 80 is very small. A 47.5 mm bore and a 45.0 mm stroke result in a displacement of just 80 cc (cubic centimeters). The engine features a 9.7 to 1 compression ratio. The engine comes with a SOHC valvetrain with two valves. The bike has a five-speed transmission and a CDI ignition.
