The evergreen Honda XR650L returns in 2022, only for the US market, where the lucky Americans will be able to buy it in white.
It does not break, it does not spoil, you do not change it. So the XR650L remains the same and unchanged for years now, with only a change of colors, and availability exclusively for the US market.
Yes, the engine is the legendary single-cylinder air-cooled four-stroke of 644 cc. with the dry sump and the radial arrangement of the 4 valves (RFVC), which as Honda says: “allows excellent combustion efficiency and high power output.”
In the power supply we find a carburetor (the spray is for flowers), of 42.5 mm, while in the start we have a starter, so that your little foot does not suffer.
The transmission is 5-speed, and the heavy-duty clutch is a wet multi-disc.
The frame is the well-known steel backbone that encloses the engine, while in the suspensions we have a conventional Showa telescopic fork 43 mm, adjustable in 16 positions in terms of compression damping, and a fully adjustable Pro-Link rear shock absorber.
The motorcycle wears two disc brakes -256 mm front with two-piston caliper and 220 mm rear with one-piston caliper, of course without ABS, do not go crazy.
The wheels are 21 and 18 inches with spokes, while the XR comes with a small metal engine apron in its equipment. The official full liquid weight is announced at 157 kg, with the tank holding 10.6 liters of fuel.
The instruments are the same as they were in 1821 when the motorcycle made its debut, with a square analog counter with total and partial odometer and the necessary lamps.
As Honda USA says. “Meets current CARB and EPA standards.” Yes, but you did not tell us about Euro 5; again, you left us complaining
