Honda's long line of successful off-road models commenced in 1972 with the launch of the SL250 trail bike, though the prefix soon changed to the more familiar 'XL'. At that time Honda was Japan's biggest bike manufacturer (it still is, of course) but the smallest producer of off-road models. Big H's first attempt at building an engine specifically for 'dirt' use, the XL single-cylinder four-stroke motor was typically Honda in conception, being an all-alloy, overhead-cam, four-valve unit with integral five-speed gearbox, which was housed in a robust cradle-type frame. Larger-engined models constructed along similar lines followed. Honda's trail bike range was updated in the early 1980s gaining Pro-Link mono-shock rear suspension (as developed on the factory moto-crossers), long-travel front forks and an 'R' model suffix. This original and un-restored Xl350R was in regular use until its purchase by the current vendor in 2013. Currently displaying a total of 19,086 kilometres on the odometer, the Italian-registered machine is described as in generally excellent condition and offered with ACI papers.
