Did You Know?
Nearly all of the development on the 1983 CR60R was done by Honda’s mini Factory rider Jimmy Button. After a somewhat tepid first outing, and a much improved 1984 effort, Button helped Honda develop a totally new liquid-cooled CR60R for the 1985 season. Oddly, Honda would pull plug on the new bike at the last minute (even though it was already developed) and end the CR60R program in America at the end of the 1984 season.
