PERFORMANCE

FOUR-STROKE ENGINE

The XR650L’s 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 XR650L’s 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.

VERSATILITY

STREET-LEGAL FEATURES

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 it clean new look this year, 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.

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

With a full 11.6 inches of travel, the air-adjustable 43mm fork also offers 16-position 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.

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.
