About Honda Fat Cat
Do not be fooled by its name because the Honda Fat Cat is anything but fat. In fact, Honda made the Fat Cat sinewy and lightweight. It got its nickname from the fat ATV-type tires it uses. For a dirt bike, those tires give the Honda Fat Cat TR200 the kind of stability and all-terrain ability that make it better than most of the Enduro motorcycles of its generation. The Fat Cat had a short production run as Honda only made it in 1986 and 1987. It packs a powerful 199 cc air-cooled, two-valve, four-stroke single overhead cam engine that works in tandem with a five-speed transmission and an automatic clutch. The Fat Cat uses lever-actuated drum brakes on both wheels, a telescopic fork for front suspension, and a single-shock swing arm in the rear. With only two model years available, this dirt bike is uncommon and collectible. Fortunately, you can find still find a Honda Fat Cat among the large inventory of dirt bikes on eBay. There may not be many Fat Cats out in the wild, but you can always find replacement parts for it as this classic bike shares parts with other Honda all-terrain cycles.
