KLR650 Photos and Review

(no previous image) | Back | Next image

Here are a few photos of the KLR650, and some observations for prospective buyers. I only owned my KLR for a couple of months. The KLR is a great bike, but it didn't really suit me, and I never fell in love with it. It would be a fine beginner bike, but only for tall riders, or with the lowering kit.

Just to give you and idea of my background, I'm 5'8" tall. The KLR650 was my third bike, and I've been riding about 3 years. I typically put about 4000 miles per year on my bikes, mostly on a short daily commute.

In the first photo you can see the KLR with the top case on, and side cases off. The side case mounting rails are visible. This bike has the tall windscreen, and an engine guard/highway footpegs. The tires are DOT approved street tires, but are knobby.
