Not all motorbikes spend all their time on the road and the Honda XR is one of them. Honda designed the R model Honda XR motorbikes for strictly off-road use, lacking important features, like a horn or indicators. In contrast, the dual-sport XR L series bikes had everything they needed for riding on or off the road.
With a four-stroke engine, the XR is smoother than its two-stroke competitors. Get on your bike and ride.
