Honda XR650L

If you’ve had the of visiting friends or family on a when you were growing up (or living on a farm), a couple of might have stuck in head. If you were interested in any of motorised transport, your might have been to the scrambler motorcycle that was parked next to the bakkie or Even today, few farms get without the use of a motorcycle, either a two-wheeler or a quad bike.

During our test period Honda’s XR650L, these came flooding back.

it up

First of all, even if you are 1,85 metres tall, the XR is a bike to get on, since the seat has a seating position. But, you’ve swung your leg and sat down, the suspension compresses and you feel more in control.

Our bike came equipped an aftermarket Yoshimura exhaust (R4 999), and this contributed to sort of bikes’ informal designation. Exhaust gases pop and and each little twist of the is accompanied by even louder and bangs.

Once on the road, you realise this is a bike with features. There is no rev counter nor gauge, but fortunately a speedometer and the warning lights.

The wide make it easy to point the XR in a new especially through traffic, but isn’t its natural environment.

It was on gravel where the really proved itself. You can up gravel with a simple of the throttle, and getting the rear to slide is almost easier than said.

In a straight the combination of short gear and the 50 N.m of torque, make this the motorcycle that we have until now to do a wheelie from pace. See the pictures above, CAR’s technical editor, Louw. illustrated this, all in the of research for this riding

On tarmac, but especially on gravel on jumps, the suspension did a superb job in any impact. It resulted in a comfortable and we soon started to gain aspirations every time we saw an on which we could possibly get the wheel in the air.

With prices at a record high, amazed not more people are motorcycles as a primary or secondary of transport. If you live in a city, the shouldn’t be the first motorcycle to but for transport on a farm, game or in the countryside, it will make the companion.
