Honda introduced the 4-stroke Elite 80 (model code CH80) in 1985 as the eventual successor to their 2-stroke Aero 80. Honda had released an entirely 2-stroke line up of scooters in '83 when it entered the North American market, but increasingly stringent emissions regulations prevented Honda from selling 2-strokes larger than 50cc for very long. In 1984 Honda released it's first 4-stroke modern scooter, the Elite 125, and then released both larger (Elite 250) and smaller (Elite 80) siblings for 1985. During the 1985 model year, the Elite 80 was sold alongside Honda's Aero 80, but for '86 the Aero 80 was dropped and the Elite 80 left to stand on its own against Yamaha's 2-stroke Beluga / Riva 80 (which lasted until '87). The Elite 80 was quite a successful scooter and it enjoyed a remarkable run from 1985 all the way to 2007. That's an impressive 23 model years with virtually no changes. Its almost as if Honda kept this scooter around just to outlast Yamaha's Riva 125 (1985 - 2006).
