Honda introduced several 200 cc motorcycles with similar engines but different body variations in the 1980s. The model introduced in South Africa and Pakistan was known as the CD 200 RoadMaster. It had a twin cylinder 10-degree cylinder angle with a 360-degree crank shaft angle engine which meant the pistons moved together and reached top dead centre (TDC) and bottom dead centre (BDC) at the same time. It was a detuned version of the Honda CD185 twin. The engine had the same bore as the CD185 but low compression pistons (8.8:1) with a bore and stroke of 53.0 mm × 44.0 mm (2.09 in × 1.73 in), compared to 9.2:1 Compression and 53.0 mm × 41.0 mm (2.09 in × 1.61 in) for the CD185 The result was less horse power, a higher fuel economy and a lower top speed. The electrical generator system was also different from the CD185 apart from this the models were much similar.
The CD 200 featured a square speedometer, large front and rear mudguards, twin chrome exhausts, a choke tucked in behind the handle bars, a chrome plated fuel tank with the Honda logo and mock chrome air inlets on side panels. It had drum brakes in rear and front and a single 26 mm Keihin carburettor (PD 33A TA). It weighed 140 kg (310 lb)).
