Awesome! Looks like an absolute hoot. Should go great in ID.

 You got to  remember the old  KLR650 has probably been around longer than you have. It's kind of like the old WW2 Willys Jeep. The KLR isn't fast or as light as more modern adventure bikes. But in the right hands with the proper tire"s can do some amazing things and is one of the choice bikes for third world tours because of it's simplicity.

KLR was and is a great dual sport bike. There is such thing as "too much" power when riding a big bike offroad. The KLR has hundreds of thousands of loyal riders all over the world. 

I expect Kawasaki to surprise us all with a new KLR soon, and it will probably be an amazing bike.

With sales tax and everything the dealer charges, it was $11,235 OTD total. Sales tax was a bunch of it.

Kawasaki should take a note from Yamaha and put the Er650 motor in  adv bike. It is a nice punchy motor.

A ground up purpose-built adventure-ish bike with their 650 P2 motor would be great.  Even if they just updated the Versys 650 and offered a separate street and 'adventure' version, it would be a nice bike.

I'm really surprised they don't. The Versys has already got the ergo's of an adventure bike. Some spoke wheels and revalved suspension and BAM, ADV bike.

I would like to see Honda do the same, an upscale version of their 500x, maybe make a 700-800cc purpose built mini Africa Twin?                     Just thinking out loud... 🤷‍♀️

I watched that review just last night; really interesting notes on the drive geometry and suspension.  Had no clue the placement of the drive sprocket would make such a massive difference.

I've got a totally modded out dr650 right now that I'm considering selling for this bike. Looks like you have a hell of a nice place to ride there my friend!
