Forged from Honda’s desire to develop a capable, reliable and ergonomic off-roader, the Honda XR650L has all it needs to be considered a true dirt lover.
On the savage tracks, the motorcycle is helped by a reliable 644cc OHC powerplant that uses Honda’s patented Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber (RFVC). The engine is mated on a five speed transmission which delivers an average fuel consumption of 52 MPG.
The motorcycle’s backbone is represented by a semi-double-cradle steel frame which is paired with a 43mm Showa cartridge fork with 16-position compression damping adjustability and an aluminum box-section swingarm with quick-detach rear wheel.
Other features worthy of being mentioned include the front and rear disc brakes, push-button electric starter, and a modern instrument panel. You also get a pair of massive wheels that measure 21 inches up front and 18 inches out back.
The 2013 Honda XR650L is offered with a starting price of $6,690.
