It is a 2002 model. Kick start only but very easy to start. Actually easier to kick than our XR70 since it has a huge kicker. My oldest is ready to move up so this needs to go before we find a new one. If you have a XR200 sized bike I might be interested in a trade. Runs great and looks good. Normal wear and tear but we keep our bikes clean and in running order. Ready for your kid to learn to ride on. Not really interested in any trades unless it is something I could sell quickly and get another bike for him. The seat is not attached in the pictures but it does fit correctly.
