Honda XR650R HP?

How much power does the Honda XR650R produce in its bone stock form?

NAR model is probably about 30-35HP. Uncork it and you get about 45-50. Add a pipe for another 5ish... and find a source for tires. you'll need it.

I would think the xr makes more horse than that, I'd have figured closer to 50 bone stock, the KLR makes 48 hp, the XR seems to have more grunt, but maybe thats just gearing, IDK

corked up, the 650R feels like it has sinus problems. boggy, slow, and lethargic. kind of like if you were riding Snuffleufugus

from what I've read on BRP sites, it makes about 35 corked, 45 uncorked, & 55 with Honda hop up kit, with overbore 680 cc & edelbrock etc. Ummm enough to rip your arms out

Yeah, the KLR puts out about 34rwhp in stock form, and won't net you much more than 40hp with mods. The XR has more potential up top with mods. The KLR's major lacking point in terms of power delivery though is the stock gearing. Dropping a tooth on the CS really wakes it up!

With only 30-35 hp, why would anyone go through the struggle to get the XR650R street legal when you can just go out and buy a DR650SE ready to ride on the street with more(?) power?

Not to be rude but because it is an XR650R, I made my decision to get an XR650R instead of a KTM 620 after watching the movie from dust to glory and one day i wanna ride like that. I now many think it childish but my next bike will be an Africa Twin for much the same reason.
