World travelers know that adventure doesn't begin upon reaching a destination—it begins with choosing the most interesting path. It's no surprise, then, that some of the most adventurous world travelers have chosen the Kawasaki KLR650 for their excursions across the continents. With its comfortable ergonomics, large fuel tank, optional touring accessories and off-highway capability, the KLR650 makes searching a map for long-forgotten roads exciting. Power for the KLR650 comes from a strong, dual overhead cam, four-valve, liquid-cooled, single cylinder, 651cc four-stroke engine. The engine provides a wide range of power equally suitable for negotiating low-speed trails and cruising at a more brisk highway pace. An engine crankshaft counterbalancer and electric starter provide additional rider comfort and convenience. The frame for the KLR650 is made of round-section high-tensile steel—the same strong yet lightweight material used to support Kawasaki's world-class KX motocross machines. A detachable rear subframe simplifies maintenance by providing easier access to the airbox, carburetor and rear shock. Adjustable, long-travel suspension provides a plush ride on both pavement and off-road. A U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor provides access to any road open to licensed vehicles, while a sturdy engine guard protects the engine from loose rocks and gravel. With an optional Kawasaki tank bag and soft luggage on the large standard rear rack, KLR650 owners can tote enough gear for an extended trip to any remote location.
