78cc air-cooled Reed-valve Two-stroke single 8bhp 94kg 58mph
Completely different to the MTX80R. The S is based on the more familiar (and painfully slow) MTX50S. The air-cooled motor shares its bottom end with the H100, so the bigger top end will go straight on – there’s a couple of horsepower to be had in that.
The 80S only made it here as a grey import so you’ll be hunting in France, Germany and the NL; The Dutch Honda M Shop specialises in Honda 2T singles.
For: cheaper than an R Against: hard to find in the UK What you’ll pay: £600-£1800
