New vs really old MX bike

Recommended Posts

You can see that the pro on the 1983 200cc playbike is just playing with the amateur on the much more recent 250cc MX bike.

A few years ago, the was another video out there with a similar race between two guys, one on (if I recall) a late model year CRF450R and the other on a Honda XR650L, which is a big and heavy dual-purpose bike.

Of course, the guy riding the XR650L was a pro motocross racer.

 

1983 Honda XR200R.

How things have changed for that model over the years, because, when it made it's debut for the 1981 model year, American Honda was advertising the bike as a competition enduro model, complete with pics of the bike being ridden in an off-road race called an enduro.

As time went on, by 1990, the lights were removed, the suspension travel shortened a bit, the graphics got more juvenile, and the bike ended-up being advertised as a trail bike for low-speed fun.
