Honda Odyssey was a line of single-seat four-wheel[1] all-terrain vehicles produced by the Honda Corporation between 1977 and 1989.

Between 1977 and 1984, Honda manufactured the FL250 Odyssey, with a 248 cc air-cooled engine. In 1982, Honda added a roll cage,[2] similar to a dune buggy or sandrail. Scheduled to appear in spring 1984,[2] the FL350R was delayed until early 1985. Honda upgraded the two-stroke engine to 342 cc (20.9 cu in) which was later decreased to 329 cc (20.1 cu in) in a recall.[3] The engine was mounted behind the driver,[2] and featured 6.7:1 compression, capacitor discharge ignition a 32 mm (1.26 in)-throat Keihin carburetor, and added electric starting.[2] To improve stability, track was increased in 1985, to 42.5 in (1,080 mm) front and 47.2 in (1,200 mm) rear.[2] Wheel travel is to 4.3 in (110 mm) front, 5.9 in (150 mm) rear.[2] In addition, mechanical disc brakes were replaced with dual hydraulic drums in front and a single hydraulic rear disc.[2] The transmission was a variable-pitch torque converter with one speed forward and one reverse.[2] Fuel capacity was 3.1 US gallons (12 l) (with .7 US gal (2.6 l) reserve).[2] The FL350 was replaced by the FL400 Pilot in 1989.
