The clean, straightforward design of the 2019 Honda Xr650L is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.

2019 Honda Xr650L Price and Release date

The 2019 Honda Xr650L gets excellent ratings and is an IIHS Top Safety Pick. Its forward-collision warning system in particular works well, and it has acquired more capabilities in the last couple of model years. The 2019 Honda Xr650L offers a pleasantly high driving position, lots of front elbow room, and a dashboard far enough away to make the interior feel spacious. The upright shape and low window line make the interior airy and light and give excellent outward visibility.

Noise suppression is good, with more sound deadening added last year, as well as an acoustic windshield, thicker window glass, and better door seals. This helps address a chronic 2019 Honda Xr650L Reviews weak point and makes the car much more pleasant for longer trips.

Honda carries its venerable XR650L line into 2019, but to be honest, it’s almost completely unchanged from the original version unleashed on the world back in 1993. Before you scoff, I would point out that sharks haven’t changed in millions of years, having evolved long ago into creatures perfectly suited to their environments, and apparently, so it is with the XR650L. The Red Riders got it right out of the gate with this one, and popular support keeps the bike on Honda’s showroom floors even after nearly a quarter-century. I want to see what Honda has going on over there that gives this bike such longevity.

The terms “adventure bike” and “ dual sport” get thrown around a lot, and while some of the categorizations are a little ambiguous and the edges a little blurry, there is no question that this bike prefers the brown over the black. Sure, we have proper lighting to include turn signal, headlight and taillight, but much like its predecessor, the Enduro, everything else from the suspension to the body panels and the tires screams “off-road.”

A tripletree-mounted front fender leaves plenty of room for almost a foot of front suspension travel. Cheek fairings shroud the engine and direct the cooling air, and a stubby fuel tank and bench seat finish out the flylines in a decidedly dirt-tastic fashion. Seat height falls out in the nosebleed section at 37-inches tall; tiptoe zone for many riders, but necessary to accommodate the generous suspension travel.

Flank panels below the two-up bench seat enclose the subframe area and guard the central-mount muffler. Honda may be right about this being an all-road bike, but at the end of the day it comes off looking like pure dirt. One thing is for sure; I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable cornering on the streets with those tires; but then, if this bike suited your intended purpose, you wouldn’t be worrying about cornering on the streets, huh. Still, it’s plenty street-legal to get you to the trailhead.

Tubular-steel members serve as the foundation for this ride in a weight-saving, single-downtube / double-cradle assembly. Steering geometry measures out at 4 inches of trail with 27 degrees of steering-head rake, numbers that provide a certain amount of stability while retaining some agility. https://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/motorcycle-reviews/honda/2015-2019-honda-xr650l-ar165367.html

2019 Honda Xr650L Picture, Release date, and Review

Top safety scores and continual updates to safety features put the 2019 Honda Xr650L among the safest cars in its class. All 2019 Honda Xr650L include a rearview camera as standard equipment. This year, all Limited and Touring models now come with blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts. Those features are also added to Premium models ordered with Subaru’s EyeSight system.

The best value in 2019 Honda Xr650L is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
