Available only in Japan, the Honda FTR250 was a popular ‘flat-tracker’ 223cc alternative to Yamaha’s TW series, which we saw in the states. Styled after the RS750 (Honda’s second crack at making a competitive flat tracker, which absolutely dominated the AMA with four straight championships in the 80s), the FTR was an instant 80s classic that’s still being produced to this day.
Sharing a surprising amount of components with the smallest Honda Shadow, the Honda FTR250 was a solid canvas for Japanese customizers. Honda made a more road-oriented version, which they called the 223S. The 223cc engine used in both bikes is a 4-stroke thumper that produces 19 horsepower and 15 pound feet of torque.
This specific Honda FTR250 has a few needs, as it’s been sitting for a while. Get yourself a new battery and the carbs cleaned, and you should be all set – though there’s a few cosmetic issues as well.
