There are a few differences between the two 200E models that Honda made in 1982 and 1983. This may not be a complete list as I am using Honda literature and Honda 200E atc’s that I have owned for sources of information. I will start with the most noticeable differences first and then go on from there. Here we go:
Decals – The fuel tank and fender decals changed between the 1982 and 1983 models. The decals on the 1982 were different than all the rest while the decals used on the 1983 used a design that carried over and evolved to the 1984 models.

Dash Cover- The 1983 model used a dash cover where the 1982 did not. This cover had a Honda emblem on it. This type of cover was used on the later model BIG REDS.
