I own the US version of this beast of a bike, no frills mean machine. Very reliable and buckets of torque in all gears.
No brake lights, horn or ignition but who needs these when riding the lanes enjoying the sunshine ? Easy to start and maintain and wouldn't sell her ever.
versatility with muscle
owned 2 of these great bikes. first one t-boned a car at night. she had no headlights on.
configured mine for commuting and serious off road riding. changed tyres regulary. road tyres for road (not dual purpose tyres) and off road tyres for offroad.
16.4L ims tank. narrow n tall tank. worked great all situations.
stock exhaust works fine b+b baffle. rejet to suit.
all aluminium protectors. fiddled with suspension. upgraded headlight to a klx halogen.
no can see n be seen much better.
bike has done 75 000km since new. ...
My review on the Honda 650R
the 650r is water cooled and kick start; its a great bike for mainly off road riding its good around town but its not built for short people.If you wanted a bike to commute or ride round town i think the 650L would be a better option, its air cooled and has electric start but its not as quick
goes like the clappers, very responsive,sounds great excellent bike
only has about 120kms range, fuel tank too small.
