2016 Honda XR650L

The 2016 Honda XR650L is a member of the Honda XR series that are manufactured by this Japanese manufacturer. This model was first released in 1992 and since then it has been produced with very minimal changes over the years. Being a dual-sport motorcycle is mainly the reason why it has remained virtually unchanged over the years as the market for dual-sports is not competitive or popular. It is, therefore, highly unlikely that in its 24th year of production the manufacturer is going to make any major changes. However a few changes may be made to distinguish it as a 2016 year model, most likely on its outward appearances.
