Honda XR70 Information

By Ryan Calhoun

The Honda XR70 is a motorcycle used for motocross, which is a dirt-racing sport. Honda is a well-known manufacturer of motorcycles, and this particular model is said to be the best bike for beginners.

History

Created in the late 1990s, the red-trimmed motorcycle is an off-road mini bike. A total of four models have been released. It is a motorcycle that is more rider-friendly than the XR50, which was also manufactured during the same time as the XR70.

XR70 Model

The reason the XR70 is good for beginners is because it doesn't have a clutch. The motorcycle is a single cylinder, three-speed bike with four strokes. Over the years, Honda has made small changes to the bicycle, including larger fuel capacity and a larger displacement.

Safety

Because the motorcycle is built for beginners and is a traditional off-road bike, it is a fairly safe bike. The motorcycle is more of a leisure motorcycle than a true racing motorcycle.

Availability

Because this motorcycle is no longer being manufactured, it can only be resold as a used bike. Check Craigslist, Ebay or a used motorcycle vendor in your area. The price of the motorcycle depends on its condition.

Maintenance

When the bike needs maintenance or repair, take it to a mechanic who works on motocross bikes. Honda specialists are also good because they are used to working on these type of motorcycles and can easily get replacement parts. Usually, the first part to go is the throttle, so when you take it in for a regular checkup make sure to have them check the condition of the throttle.
