The XR650L is a dual-sport motorcycle manufactured by Honda, part of the Honda XR series. It was released in 1992 as a 1993 model. It combines the RFVC engine from the proven NX650 Dominator dual sport with the lighter, off-road capable XR600R chassis, which is not road legal in the US. It has been produced virtually unchanged since 1993.

The engine is an air-cooled 644 cc (39.3 cu in) SOHC, dry-sump, single-cylinder, four-stroke. With an electric starter, headlight, taillight, turn signals, mirrors, US EPA and California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant exhaust system, and a 2.8-US-gallon (11-litre; 2.3-imperial-gallon) fuel tank, the 650L has a 349 lb (158 kg) wet weight.[1] The seat height is 37 inches (940 mm).
