Honda XR series are designed to specialize in beaten tracks and winding mountainous roads. These series are a range of air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke off-road motorcycles that were designed in Japan but assembled everywhere in the world. Some later models were also manufactured with a few special features different from previously traditional specifications. For instance, the XR 650R and XRV 650R are water-cooled and the XRV 650R is a twin cylinder engine.

Some of the XR series were launched with two versions, R and L. With knobby off-road tires fitted, the R version motors were professional ones for off-road riding, but not always street legal. The L version models were dual sport bikes, fitted with the indicators, lights, horn, tyres and mirrors appropriate for public road. A number of R version models had these as well.

In its successful period, the XR series enclosed 10 models, but now only the dual-sport XR 650Lis available. All remaining XR models were replaced by the CRF series. In the history of motorbike, the Honda XR650L is one of the longest running that has kept its constant production models and still continues today precisely as the 1992 model specifications.

Born in 2003, the XR 125L has a 124cc engine producing 11.13 HP (8.1 kW) at 8,500 rpm. Solely the 2012 XR125L owns both an electric starter and a kick starter.

Vietnam motorcycling tip 6

In 1996, the XR 250R, which is the mainstay of the XR range, was updated with a new 249 cc air-cooled four-stroke Radial Four Valve Combustion Chamber (RFVC) that generated 19 HP (14 kW) at 8100 rpm. Although it was relatively heavy and both front and rear suspension were quite simple, the XR 250R proved reliable and was successful as an entry-level off-road machine. TheX250R was stopped its production in 2004.

XR 250L

Vietnam motorcycling tip 7

Manufactured from 1991-2007, the XR 250L is the street version of the XR250R. It possessed road legal lights and tires, a metal fuel tank, keyed ignition/steering lock, plus other trivial changes. Some 40 lbs heavier, it had diminished off-road ability. Similar to XR250R, it had aRFVC 249 cc engine too, but with a different carburetor and 3 mm smaller exhaust headers to meet emissions requirements.
