Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > XR650L
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
If ever the ancient XR650L ever gets canned, put on all your winter gear because hell will have surely frozen over. It's not a comfortable highway bike, but it's the most dirt-friendly of all the Japanese 650 duallies, is tough as nails, and it is remarkably easy to ride. Keep those fires stoked Beelzebub!
