Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > DR650SE
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The DR650 sits between the more dirt-friendly XR650L and the more street-friendly KLR650 as a true 50/50 dual sport. It's a bike that has changed very little since introduced in 1996, but still works well in its role. It's priced just above the Japanese 250 dual sports, which makes it a bargain worth looking at for anyone who wants a competent all-rounder.
