1984 XR250R and XR350R Magazine Advertisement



More Dirty Torque from Honda
For 1984, we've got only one thing to say to the enduro competition: RFVC.

No, it's not a new swear-word; it stands for Radial Four Valve Combustion Chamber. Which is bad news for the opposition, because not only is the XR350R still equipped with this particular type of cylinder head for the second year running, the all-new XR250R is as well.

The RFVC cylinder head features four large, radially disposed valves that occupy virtually all of the cylinder head area, and two carburetors; one for low and mid-range power, the other chiming in at higher revs for maximum power output.

The results? Massive lugging power, throughout the rev range.

XR250R
All-new for 1984, the XR250R's overhead camshaft single cylinder four-stroke engine punches out 29PS and 2.40kg-m of torque.

Front brake is a disc unit with dual piston caliper, sintered metal pads and braided stainless steel hose.

Sturdy 38mm front forks are air-assisted, while the single-shock Pro-Link rear suspension has 16-way adjustable compression damping, 4-way adjustable rebound damping and a rigid box-section swingarm.

To help prevent hand injuries, the handlebars feature plastic lever shields.

Weight is a mere 105kg.

XR350R
Pumping out a hefty 32PS and 3.08kg-m of torque from its single cylinder four-stroke engine, the XR350R gets a lightweight disc front brake with dual piston caliper, sintered metal pads and braided stainless steel brake hose for 1984.

Front forks are massive 41mm air-assisted units, while rear suspension is single-shock Pro-Link with 12-way adjustable compression damping, 4-way adjustable rebound damping and lightweight box-section swingarm. Like the XR250R, the XR350R has plastic lever shields to protect your hands.

Weight is only 112kg.
