1971 HX90

Collection items

(1971 / Production Model)


The HX90 mounted the final iteration of the AT90’s power unit, which was marketed as the world’s first 2-stroke 90cc parallel twin when it was first released in 1965. Its high-pitched exhaust note under acceleration made it popularly known as the “Jet Twin” and the bike’s styling was modern as well, taking after the 2-stroke RX350 of the time. The HX90 was produced until 1974—when the single-cylinder RD90 was released—and its pleated seat and semi-upright handlebars provided a comfortable riding position, while it came with a bigger taillight, side reflectors, and more.
