Hi everyone.

I am about to receive my first XL, in fact my first Honda and I am very much looking forward to it.

It’s a 1982 XL250SA and it is bought unseen by me so I am taking a big gamble but the bike is 200 miles away so a specialist courier is collecting it.

I would like to know more about the evolution and lettering/coding of the various models over the years and wonder if there is a reference source for this. Google doesn’t show much and there is a small amount of info on Wikipedia but I imagine there is more than this available.

One of the reasons for asking is that the bike I have bought is an older shape twin shock model with the older lozenge shaped tank but it was first registered in September 1982. The designation is XL250SA, but I read somewhere that these were a 1980 model.

Can anyone shed any light or guide me to a reference please?

Thanks

Simon
