2021 Honda XR650 – None for Australia :’-(
For some reason, just recently we have seen a stack of inquiries coming through to The Honda Shop asking about the possibility of an updated Honda XR650L in Australia.
Unfortunately, these rumors are false. There are currently no plans for an Aussie release despite the new model receiving great reviews in the States.
The new 2021 edition of the legendary Honda XR650L continues the true spirit of the XR line with a bulletproof single cylinder, air-cooled thumper at its heart. Bare bones everything else, no gimmicks or flashy features, just good old fashioned fun and massive torque.
For those having flashbacks and phantom pain in their shins about getting a hot kickstart wrong there is also good news in the form of an electric starter!
We think the XR could be a solid seller here in Australia but alas, we will just have to dream of an Aussie release. Feel free to hit up Honda Australia and tell them how much you would love to see a big thumper return to Aussie shores 😉
