2007 XR650L what do you think

16 posts in this topic

Seems like a decent deal. The "buy it now" price is about $1000 below MSRP and it has a couple of extras that are noticable. Besides the hand guards, it has a smog block off kit installed.

I bought my brand new 06 for $4999 plus tax. The seat looks old, it's pink ? I'd ask a few questions.

I got mine in october for $5400. 'Course, add all the tax, title, license, state reg. etc, $6142 out the door. If the shipping won't be much, probably decent deal. Otherwise, check with your local dealer. When I drooled and peed a little on mine, he dropped the price...

The discolored seat cover makes me think someone used bleach or another harsh chemical to clean it? Looks good other than the seat though, I think I would contact the seller, ask some questions, if I got the right answers would make a reasonable offer, say around $4500.

The funky color of the seat, I think, is due to the texture of the vinyl, the light source, and most guilty: a bad or poor quality imager in the digicam.

Check this pic from my garage: http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/garage.php?do=viewattachment&attachmentid=21436

Its from a Sony DSC-P9 4 Mpixel. Takes OK pics, but far from true-to-life.

Hey Noah837 where did you get your bike for that price? If that is really what you paid the dealer took a $600.00 loss:confused:

It's a great bike for being unchanged for over the last decade. Tech wise, it dates back to the eighties. For the money, one should look at a DRZ400S. You would get a lighter bike with more modern equipment and more power. Honda has been milking this XR650L for way too long. The biggest motorcycle manufacturer should be ashamed for not providing the public with a more modern dualsport.

I agree, and really, realllly wish Honda would create a state-of-the-art DS bike(modern, light weight, low-maintenance, great power:weight, etc.), or even a DS line (like a 125/200, 400, and a 600/700). But as it stands, the L is still a good mount, and Honda will continue to make what sells.

Also, look at the market "competition" it has...the DS650 and the KLR650? _Any_ improvement to the L would smoke that market segment.
