I'll take a KLR650 and a Concours 14. Please deliver to "The Great Flatlands, CANADA"

I gotta believe that is a typo in the spec sheet. 17 amps at 12 volts pretty clearly means it is a 204 watt (give or take a few watts) alternator. (P does still equal I * V). 200 watts isn't great, but it's pretty good for the KLR, and should be enough to add a few trinkets that weren't possible before (but twin 100-watt 6" Baja lamps still won't work).

I guess the point is that you actually bought the Royal Star, not the VMax. I have no idea what the marketing draw to lower HP/slightly higher torque is; certainly doesn't work for me.

How much longer can the KLR go without fuel injection and satisfy emissions?

I would almost bet Kawasaki will do a real update in another year maybe two to keep up.

Kawasaki fell short on the KLR in my book!
