In 1979 Honda’s Racing Service Corporation (the forerunner to HRC) built a very limited run of the TL200RII Competition Trial bike.
The story really began in 1976 when Honda first let the Racing Service Corporation arm of the company produce a very limited number of hand built trial bikes purely for competition use.
The RSC Honda TL200R was the first of the dynasty of nice and competitive 200cc RSC Honda trials bikes.
This first model started using the TL125 (coming from Honda XL125 engine) 125cc engine (no CDI yet) upgraded to 200cc.
In 1979 they produced this bike the TL200RII. (not to be confused with the production TLR200 of later years).
Like the other Honda RSC hand built bikes the RS200T and RS220T this was produced in very small quantities (360 units white colour and 150 red colour).
Frame numbers began from number TL200RF-2001.
The engine number on the crankcase began with the RS letters.
TL200RII had a tubular diamond steel swing arm that later was replaced for the right-angled aluminium one on the RS200T. The engine was painted silver grey.
Front forks were Showa 31mm diameter.
This engine is was derived from the venerable Honda XL125. It was developed by RSC Japan to 197,74cc .
First equipped with CDI at camshaft with 1.59 Kg/m maximum torque at 4.000rpm
We recently acquired this fine example out of Japan. It’s frame number is TL200RF-2125
and it has just fabulous classic Honda trials lines.
Painted in classic Honda Racing red, white and blue, it just looks amazing, and shows why Honda and the RSC/HRC division went on to win so many World Trials events and Championships.
This is the genesis of a line of bikes that were truely dominant four stroke trials machines.
