Runner 180SP 1999-: The most iconic Runner model, the two-stroke 180SP has serious poke – enough to impress a motorcyclist, and enough to pull power-wheelies!
Runner FXR180 1998-2000: The four-stroke version of the biggest Runner offers better economy and no need to fill with two-stroke oil, but less excitement.
Runner VXR180 2001-2008: Updated version of the FXR180, with minor changes including rear disc brake.
Runner VXR200 2002-2008: The biggest ever Runner, the 200 matches the speed of the older 180SP, but still doesn’t manage the same excitement. The most suited to sustained high-speed riding, but still small enough to get around town.
