The Honda XR650L is a legendary bike. Not for the way it looks or because of how many races it’s won. But because of how brutally perfect it is for serious off-road adventures. Fully street legal, thousands of riders use it as a brilliant commuter. But when the road ends and the trails start, an entire generation of riders has proven that this is the machine you want, because it never lets you down.
Its ultra-tough 644cc overhead-cam engine has torque and power to spare. And because it’s air-cooled, it’s easy to maintain, and there’s no hoses or radiators to leak out in the middle of nowhere. The engine’s gear-driven counter balancer reduces vibrations, so you’re more likely to ride farther. Long-travel suspension is trail proven, and easily tames the gnarliest pavement. The XR650L is the dual-sport that rolls up its sleeves and gets the job done.
