He is no small man, and he rides it too...
Now that's impressive!

Hey Honda, can you do that on a CRF????

I think if you dont already have an XR650R you'd be mad to go and dump money into one at this late stage. To those that have them it's wise to keep them.

The landscape is only going to get better for big bore riders (eventually!) (KATOOM Baja) and so owing the 650R might give you a few months of joy only to be confronted by the harsh reality that the market has passed it by and delivered newer bikes with monda suspension. FI, tankage and great ergos.

Naw I didn't get the subframe, but I did get a front wheel, stock exhaust, swingarm linkage, and front brake lever assembly. Before that I got a new swingarm, rear brake caliper, airbox, rear brake master cylinder, and of course a new engine.

Haven't got it all together yet but once I do it's going to be like a new bike.

Hey wait a minute......

CRF600..... about as likely as the A380.

I'm as skeptical as you, but they were 2 of the few top corporate guys in Honda Powersports North America...



All we can do is wait and see, eh?

Honda has been dual sporing the 650R for years around the world, but they seem to have decided that you guys in the US are not ready for it ....

More like they decided to punish us by making us DS it ourselves, paying out the ass in the process.

Oh well, atleast we can build them the way we see fit Because I doubt Honda would do them up in touring trim

As much as i want Honda to continue making a Dominent Big Bore single, id be pissed if they came out with a Duel Sport CRF/XR when i just went and bought a brand new 07 and have to legalize it myself.

Even if they stop making it alltogether parts will still be available for years to come. I can still stop at my local dealer and order parts for my 82 CB.

XR Replacement

This is what I'll be buying if honda doesn't come out with a replacement big bore for the XR650R.

all I'll do is but on a high low beam headlight, rear break light, a mirror and and horn..to make it a DS and go ride the West Texas Desert.!!! Oh.. did I mention a better seat (look at that 2x4!!)

Honda is missing the boat if they don't make a compairable bike....
