That's pretty interesting. The NX engine is much more powerful than the contemporary XL250. I think that the engine was specd at 27hp, which is pretty good for 250. For comparison it's about the same as a current CRF250. Since the NX was meant for road use the RPM's are more limited than a modern MX 250. The NX redline is only 9000 rpm.

The suspension on that bike is definitely XL and not NX. The NX suspension kind of sucked for serious off road use.

Honda has always sold bikes that are not available in the US. A few come to mind like the Transalp or the CRM's. The CRM's were street legal 2 strokes based on the CR's and the TransAlp was a 750cc V twin. Think XR650L on steroids. Those are only a couple examples of many models that are only available overseas.

The bikes that Honda sells elsewhere and not in the USA is actually quite staggering. For a look at the new stuff we don't get, just go to the appropriate Honda website for a different country. You can hit the UK and Austrailian websites to see stuff in english, but if just looking at pictures you can see some pretty interesting Hondas in lots of other places around the world.

For new bikes there are Dominators (NXs), Transalp (XL700V), Varadero (XL1000V), FMX650s and 400s, etc... scattered to different parts of the globe. There are too many to list that we don't see. And this doesn't include the street side; can you say DN01? http://www.honda.co.uk/DN01/
