Re: 1998 Honda XR600R, dual sport, street legal, plated

They are fairly close to equal as far as power, although the X seems to put it down a little better in my opinion. The X is about 20 lbs lighter. The big difference to me is the suspension. You basically have old school technology vs new. Not saying you can't do a lot of things on the XR, as I did plenty of trails and jumps on my XR650L, and it weighed a bunch more than the XR600. I have halfway contemplated putting my X up for sale and just keeping whichever one sells. This XR600 is a good all around bike, the X just does the offroad trails/single track stuff and jumps better to me.

it sounds like a pretty cool bike, my interest in a d/s that could also maybe swap over to some sumo/rain tires for track days was piped up when I saw a friend ride a katoom on rains at ECR a few weeks back.
