Honda XL 600Rs are by far the best motorcycle ever made, in any class, not mention dirtbikes...
this thing was designed by the best engineers of the century, and was built to cross the desert in the baja 1000. with dual carbs, dual exhaust, dual intake valves, dual exhaust valves, a 2.1 quart dry sump oiling system int he frame, so if you spring a leak you can run it for a while, ( there can never be a big leak, its a bullet proof motor) and its just balls to the wall. itll wheely whenever you… Read Full Review

I should mention that I only just rode this bike (a friend let me borrow it) today, for about three hours. However, I definitely put it through its paces, as I have about 17 thousand miles of experience riding dual sports on the street and in the dirt, and have ridden many different bikes (friends always let me try their bikes :D ) ! I got it up to a max speed of 90 mph indicated(about 84 actual). Second gear wheelies from 10 to 30+ mph are very easy. The bike just GOES! I loved the grunt this… Read Full Review

If Honda were to produce a 1983 replica xl 600 r now it would out sell all dual sports but. They won't do it as they have lost their way and are adrift.
P.S. I own onw will never sell it… Read Full Review

I have an 86' with the slick gold rims and swing-arm (love it or hate it). The bike isn't flashy and won ' t win much parking lot cred but its ok. In traffic you can, in any gear, grab the throttle and count on some late 20th century hustle. The giant 100mm bore and the ohc radial valve head have a flat torque curve and smooth, high end power. It ' s tricky not to just leave it in third permanently. Not so much money for a really ridable bike… Read Full Review

Overall these bikes can be great fun and as new produced max power of 43bhp at 6000rpm. Will happily sit at 80mph but more than that for anytime won`t do the engine any favours (remember these bike aren`t far off 20yr old now).
They`re fine for a bit of green laning but for more serious offroading then they`re too heavy.
I own two of these, a 1983 paris dakar and a 1986 rmf and enjoy both as the bit secondhand or new are cheap and there`s loads being imported into the UK now from Italy.
Only… Read Full Review

I love my Honda XL 600R. It's pushing around 60 horsepower and 55 foot pounds of torque. It tops out at 105 mph. I love this thing to death. I never have to shift down when I climb hills, it has loads of power. I can be doing 55 and pin the throttle and the front wheel just lifts off the ground. Best bike, in my opinion… Read Full Review
