How many motorcycles can you name that won Baja 1000 races spanning a 12-Year: period? Not to mention nine off-road championships and dozens of other major off-road events. Only one motorcycle makes the cut: Honda’s mighty XR®600R. Honda’s off-road four-strokes have been immensely successful in terms of both sales and race wins for decades, and the most successful of them all is the legendary XR600R.

First introduced in 1985, the XR600R could claim the XR500R as its predecessor. That bike, first introduced in 1979, also proved to be a favorite of dirt riders everywhere and amassed racing victories all over the world and in a staggering variety of conditions.

The XR600R introduced a number of key features, not the least of which centered on its Engine: , a power plant that produced lots of grunty torque as well as class-leading top-end power, all spread over an easy-to-ride, seemingly limitless range. It retained the 500’s SOHC four-valve RFVC (Radial Four Valve Combustion Chamber) head for maximum valve area. The XR was fed by twin 28mm Keihin carbs (the same as the 500’s except for revised jetting). Spent gasses exited through a new, longer, twin headpipe system and redesigned muffler/spark arrestor.
