The Honda XR100 and XR100R are known as great bikes for beginners. Honda produced these models from 1981 to 2007. Early models were known as the XR100, and after a suspension change in 1985, the name of the series became the XR100R. These dirt bikes are built for trails, hills and sand.

Beginners Bike

In "The Motorcycle Book," Alan Seeley mentions the XR100R as one of several Honda motorcycles that are good starter bikes. He points out that smaller bikes like the XR100 and XR100R are reasonably priced and easier to handle than larger bikes.

Engine Specifications

The XR100 and XR100R are equipped with a 99.2-cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine. They have a close-ratio, five-speed transmission and manual clutch. Honda equipped the XR100 and XR100R dirt bikes with a kickstarter, single carburettor and 1.5-gallon fuel tank.

Colours and Design

For six years, the XR100 and XR100R were only available in red. After 1987, Honda began changing colour schemes for the XR100R every few years. Honda made several changes to the logo design of the XR100 and XR100R, with the late 1990s models being especially bold.


The XR100 and XR100R are 74.8 inches long by 32.1 inches wide. The seat height is a low 30.5 inches, enabling most younger riders to reach the ground. Dry weight is 74.8kg.
