2023 Honda XR650L Dual Sports Bike

There is a large cult following for the 2023 Honda XR650L Dual Sports Bike since it is one of the most unpretentious bikes available. The air-cooled single-cylinder engine, sturdy steel frame, and long-travel suspension are just a few examples of the bike’s tried-and-true simplicity, durability, and reliability. It is a fantastic commuting vehicle because of its electric starting and street-legal characteristics. Last year, we gave it a visual upgrade (black rims, black seat, black tool bag and fork boots, and white-on-white bodywork), and now it looks even better. In today’s complicated world, this bike’s simplicity stands out. And it’s prepared for whatever exciting journey you’re planning.

Factory Handguards

Protect yourself from rocks, branches, thorns, brush, and rain with these accessories for the XR650L.

18-Inch Rear Wheel

The 18-inch back wheel provides a more comfortable ride and protection against flats while accommodating various on- and off-road tires.

21-Inch Front Wheel

The front wheel’s 21-inch diameter means you may fit various tires for various terrains.

Long-Travel Front Suspension

You may fine-tune the long-travel fork’s capacity to absorb the bumps of off-road riding by adjusting the fork’s compression damping.

Pro-Link Rear Suspension

The Honda Pro-Link® rear suspension system provides a smooth and controlled ride quality. Initially, the rates are soft to allow for a smooth ride over mild imperfections, but as the surface becomes rougher, the rates stiffen to prevent the vehicle from bottoming out and to keep the rear-wheel drive in control. Adjustable compression and rebound damping are features of the remote-reservoir rear shock.

Steel Frame

The XR650L has a steel frame that can take the punishment of serious off-roading. In addition, the oil tank for the engine is integrated into the frame’s central support structure.
