As far as I'm aware you can't get one in the EU and those that I know have got them have imported from the states.

I could be proven wrong.

Happy trails!!

I don't know about the importing, but I can tell you that i just got a brand new 2012 XR650LC and I absolutely love it!!
I have put 1000km on it in my first 4 times out and today it went in for the first service and I can't wait to pick it up tomorrow.
I just became a member here today and seeing all the people that travel have my mind racing with my thoughts of RTW on the XR beast.
I am so happy with my purchase....I feel like I did when I was 9 years old with my first bike....a Suzuki RM80!

I really hope that you find a way to get your XR.....you'll love it like I do I'm sure!!

Peace
