Honda International Bikes: XR650L

Honda XR650L: Dual Sport Motorcycle

Price: Starting from $5,999

Whether you ride on dirt or on the road, power is everything. Especially when you ride the XR650L. Its bulletproof 644cc overhead cam engine produces huge torque and power, thanks to the Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber. While the gear-driven counterbalancer reduces tiring vibrations. Thanks to a chassis that is strong and exceptionally agile, the XR650L makes short work of long rides whether they’re on the road or off.

It all starts in the engine room, where the XR’s potent, Baja-bred 644cc OHC powerplant uses Honda’s patented Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber (RFVC) to put out huge torque and power. From there, a gear-driven counterbalancer minimizes vibrations, while a light, rigid chassis and long-travel suspension soak up the bumps and deliver superb handling on pavement and off. Handy electric starting simply makes it all that much easier.
