2012 Kawasaki KLR650 Review

2012 Kawasaki KLR650 Review
The Best-Selling Dual-Sport Goes the Distance
Effective wind protection and a 5.8-gallon fuel tank ensure incredible range between stops. A single-cylinder, 651cc four-stroke engine propels this world traveling powerhouse. Matching the engine’s abilities every step of the way is the KLR650s suspension. Braking duties are handled by a dual-piston caliper gripping a 280mm petal-style disc in the front, and a 240mm petal-style disc squeezed by a single-piston caliper in the rear. This suspension and brake package boosts the KLR650’s on-road performance without diminishing its versatile off-road capabilities.

A large, 5.8-gallon fuel tank and exemplary fuel economy mean the KLR650 can cover an amazing amount of ground between fill-ups.
The KLR650’s competent on-road performance continues once the pavement stops.
