All You Would Want to Know About the Honda CR 80

If you have been out shopping for a motorcycle, and have started considering buying a Honda CR 80, then you could find yourself looking to get more information about it, in order to make ‘an informed decision.’

In spite of the fact that Honda stopped the production of the Honda CR 80 recently (alongside the whole Honda CR series), many of its last specimen are still being sold in various motorcycle stores; where they are quite a hit. Used motorcycles of this variety too, are to be found on sale in various stores that deal in second hand motorcycles, as well as on various online auctions. Generally, if you want to get a Honda CR 80, there are so many places you can procure it, the fact that its production has been discontinued notwithstanding.

For instance, you may want to know what you will be getting, in terms of speed. Well, the maximum speeds that Honda CR 80 gives range between 70 and 80 miles per hour, which makes it one of the fastest (yet affordable) machines in the name of a motorcycle.

Here, you may be amazed to learn that the Honda CR 80, a machine first created in 1980, actually comes with a six (and not five) speed gear transmission.

You may also want to express an interest in knowing how ‘cooling’ is handled in the Honda CR 80, especially if your previous machine was written off due to overheating.
