600 vs 650

5 posts in this topic

Whats the biggest difference between the xr600 and the xr 650 besides the 650 is water cooled? Is there a noticable power diff? Is the weight close? Im looking for a street legal xr650r , but there are not too many around here in central Calif. and was wondering if it is really a big step down to go for an older streeted xr600

Thanks

Darren

Here's some good reading about XR650R / XR600R comparisons. Both are great bikes. The XR650R does have more power and does handle better in some situations, but there's nothing wrong with a good dual sport XR600R, especially if you find one at a good price.
