2024 Honda XR150L Features & Benefits

Value-focused, yet impressively versatile, the XR150L makes the dual-sport motorcycling experience more accessible than ever. With a budget-friendly MSRP, efficient fuel economy and approachable ride characteristics, this do-all machine is a capable around-town commuter or campground companion. The XR150L is outfitted with convenient features like a rear cargo rack and electric starter, but it maintains the rugged simplicity for which the XR family of motorcycles is known. Plus, with a wide range of Honda Accessories available, it can be easily adapted for various riding experiences.


A classic upright dual-sport riding position promotes rider comfort and control, promoting vehicle maneuverability. The tall handlebar allows for a natural riding position, optimizing handling and control. The low seat inspires confidence by enabling stable footing for steady starts and stops. Adding to the high level of rider comfort, the foot pegs feature rubber isolators that dampen vibration, enhancing the smooth, comfortable ride.

The MX-inspired shrouds and front fender take after the CRF Performance line, while the modern headlight styling adds an aggressive look to the front end. An included rear rack provides convenient cargo space for luggage and supplies.


With bore-and-stroke figures of 57.3mm and 57.8mm, the 149.2cc air-cooled four-stroke engine offers legendary XR toughness and reliability and produces smooth, predictable power. Capable of highway speeds, the engine is tuned to competently handle around-town riding and confidently negotiate dirt roads and trails. Remarkably efficient, the small-displacement engine has a wide powerband and pairs with a largest-in-class 2.8-gallon fuel tank to deliver a tested 346 miles of fuel range. The XR150L also features a convenient electric starter.


The XR150L's steel frame is designed to handle the intensity of off-road travel. A tubular-steel rear carrier is standard, providing a great platform to secure a small load.

The XR150L's suspension strikes a great balance, the 31mm conventional fork and single rear shock delivering 7.1 inches and 5.9 inches of front and rear wheel travel, respectively—enough to absorb the bumps and rocks of a dirt road or trail, but not so much that the seat height is excessive. Suspension settings are optimized for a comfortable, controlled ride on the pavement and in the dirt.

Wheels / Brakes
Even with the XR150L's low seat height, it still boasts full-size wheels (19-inch front, 17-inch rear), allowing it to roll over potholes and rough off-road terrain, while also promoting stability at speed.

The dual-piston hydraulic front caliper is paired with a 240mm rotor for strong, precise braking. Out back, a 110mm drum brake provides reliable performance in a wide array of conditions.


Honda offers a range of accessories for the XR150L, including a Dual Sport Tank Bag, Dual Sport Saddle Bags, Handguards, a Skid Plate and a 12V Accessory Socket.
