Have you got it in you to ride off the tarmac, Then here is what will interest you, Kawasaki introduces KLR 650.

The KLR650 is the motorcycle you want when your travel plans take you through all sorts of terrain, off-road or on. Its sturdy single-cylinder engine provides good power and reasonably good fuel efficiency. Comfortable wind protection and a 5.8-gallon fuel tank ensure that riders can go a long way between stops. An aluminum rear cargo rack has plenty of space to accommodate saddlebags or a tail bag as well. With its low end torque, it is absolutely fantastic to ride in city traffic as well.

For the KLR 650,

  • 651cc of displacement
  • 280mm dual piston caliper for the front and 240mm single-piston caliper, both are petal style discs.
  • Combined with the suspension package, the brake set-up turns the Kawasaki tour into a fun, functional commuter on any every imaginable surface it gets on.
  • 5 Gear Transmission

 In international markets, it’s really affordable at just $5,999 so it shouldn’t be a problem to buy if you’re in the market for a touring bike.
