2023 Honda® XR650L
The XR650L is one of the most honest, straightforward motorcycles on the planet—which is why it has such a huge following. Everything about this bike is rugged, simple, and proven: the air-cooled single-cylinder engine, the strong steel frame, the long-travel suspension. Electric starting and street-legal features make it a terrific commuter. We gave it some graphic updates last year that make it look even better (black rims, black seat, tool bag, and fork boots, and white-on-white bodywork). It’s a refreshingly straightforward bike in an increasingly complex world. And it’s ready for any adventure you have in mind.
Features may include:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
