patriotic Honda XL600R-street style Pasadena driveway

Whats more patriotic then red, white and blue? The red engine looks snappy but all that paint acts as insulation, which means this air-cooled motorcycle will run hotter then if then metal was unpainted. This kick-start, RVFC (Radial Four Valve Combustion) engine produced 45 horsepower and weighed 270 pounds wet. The XL600R were produced from 1985-2000 until the bike was replaced by the the liquid cooled, aluminium framed XR650 R. In Europe the bike was essentially unchanged but the bike was branded the Honda Dominator.
