XR650L

PERFORMANCE

FOUR-STROKE ENGINE

The four-stroke, single-cylinder engine offers good fuel efficiency and a wide powerband. In addition, its proven powerplant requires very little maintenance.

DISC BRAKES

Front and rear disc brakes provide superior stopping power. Both front and rear disc rotors are drilled for lightness and better wet-weather performance.

CONVENIENCE

ELECTRIC STARTER

Adventure is just the push of a button away. The electric starter takes all the drama out of restarting off-road, or getting underway on a cold morning, or after the bike’s been sitting all week.

QUICK-RELEASE FASTENERS

Accessing the air filter, battery, and fuse box is fast and easy, thanks to the quick-release fasteners on the left sidecover.

VERSATILITY

STREET-LEGAL FEATURES

While the XR650L is a great off-road bike, it’s also fully equipped for the street—including turn signals, license-plate light, mirrors, speedometer, and more. There’s even a grab strap and footpegs for a passenger.

PASSENGER READY

With a passenger grab strap, folding passenger pegs, a long MX-style seat and plenty of Honda power, the XR650L lets you carry a passenger with ease.

DESIGN

SEALED BATTERY

No maintenance hassles here, even in the case of an off-road tip over. The sealed battery has plenty of cranking power for the electric starter, and is well protected from the vibrations of off-road riding.

DRY-SUMP LUBRICATION

The XR’s dry-sump design keeps the engine compact and eliminates the oil pan for superior ground clearance and damage resistance. Plus, with the engine oil in the frame, the frame itself acts like a giant oil cooler.

BLACK RIMS

In keeping with its clean look, we've given the XR650L black rims front and rear. It's amazing how much cleaner they make the bike look, especially combined with the black fork boots, black seat, and black tool bag.

FACTORY HANDGUARDS

Designed to make it off-road ready right out of the box, they help protect you from rocks, branches, thorns, brush, and rain.

HANDLING

18-INCH REAR WHEEL

The 18-inch rear wheel gives you a better overall ride and more sidewall protection against flats, and still offers a wide choice of on- or off-road tires.

21-INCH FRONT WHEEL

The 21-inch front wheel gives you a wide choice of tire selection for different riding conditions.

LONG-TRAVEL FRONT SUSPENSION

The long-travel fork also offers compression damping adjustability, letting you fine-tune it to deal with the bumps of off-road riding.

PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION

Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension system offers compliant and comfortable ride quality with a high level of wheel control. Initial rates are soft for supple action over small bumps and ripples, while increasingly stiffer rates resist bottoming and maintain rear-wheel control over rougher surfaces. The remote-reservoir rear shock is fully adjustable for both compression and rebound damping.

STEEL FRAME

The XR650L’s steel frame is designed to handle the intensity of off-road travel. Plus, the frame’s backbone doubles as the engine’s oil tank, saving weight and space.
