Post Sale Update: After being relisted, this XR650L Supermoto sold for $5,000 after 16 bids on eBay.


The Honda XR650L has been a long standing dual-sport staple. A 644cc carbureted powerplant pushing 324 pounds dry balances power and agility, without the brutality of a full motocrosser. The single cylinder setup fosters reliability for endless joy, and supermoto glory is just a front end conversion and street tires away. 650cc supermotos are in a category of their own in terms of smiles per gallon. Honda’s XR650L offers a carefree introduction to someone looking for their first hoon machine or racebike. Many have been tuned, but maintenance could not be simpler.

Florida is beginning to stand out as a place to find well-built Supermotos with low miles, and this Honda XR650L (VIN: JH2RD06048K601387) delivers as promised. A 664cc big bore kit is paired with head work and upgraded oil cooler. Just 100 miles are on the fresh rebuild, with only 4,500 miles total. To help control the extra grunt, a Honda CRF450 inverted fork kit has been fitted and topped with a steering stabilizer. The list goes on, resulting in a well-built package that is freshly sealed and ready to rip. The maintenance schedule on a raised compression bike may be a little more aggressive, but I’m sure the power delivery is too.
