There is nothing particularly trick about the XR650L, just an ageless tubular steel frame, a conventional fork, an electric-start carbureted engine, and decades-old styling. But despite this, the biggest Honda dual-sport just flat works. Take it on the freeway, park it at work or school, or throw some soft bags over the gas tank or tailsection and take off. The XR650L will comply with unwavering grace. And if you’re inventive, its performance will wake up quite a bit with some thoughtful tuning.
