Wherever the destination, whatever the distance, over any kind of terrain, one of Australia's favourite Adventure bikes, the KLR650 is the motorcycle to get you there in style and comfort. With its large powerful engine, long travel suspension and massive fuel carrying capacity combined with rock-solid reliability and unbreakable toughness, the big KLR makes short work of rugged forest trails, wide open deserts and inner city traffic alike.
The 41 mm front fork last featured an upgrade in 2014, which then included stiffer springs, increased oil height and revised damping settings (for stronger rebound damping). Set-up to better suit on-road riding situations and heavier loads. This all contributes to an increase in ride comfort and an improvement in handling.
Changes in 2014 included revision to the Uni-Trak single-shock rear suspension include a stiffer spring and stronger rebound damping. The upgrades add to the handling and assist with load carrying for the biggest of adventures.
Thanks to a massive 22.0 Litre fuel capacity, the KLR650 has the long-distance touring range to ride off into the sunset and back again. If it’s commuting you are doing, then you won’t be planning on visiting the petrol station too often! A great range of genuine accessories adds to the functionality of the KLR650.
Precise cam-timing and intake porting, a one-piece exhaust system and a fully transistorised ignition adds up to thumping power across the big 651cc four stroke’s rev-range. Big, strong and reliable......the KLR650
