2020 Honda XR650L Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The Honda XR650L is a legendary bike. Not for the way it looks or because of how many races it’s won, but because of how brutally perfect it is for serious off-road adventures. Fully street legal, thousands of riders use it as a commuter. But when the road ends, that’s when things really start to get interesting. The XR650L is equipped with an ultra-tough 644cc overhead-cam air-cooled engine, a gear-driven counterbalancer to reduce vibrations, plus proven long-travel suspension — so you have a dual-sport that rolls up its sleeves and gets the job done on any road or trail.
