Nice comparo!
 
Great job on the comparo of an oft overlooked bike segment. Kudos!

IMHO, Kawasaki is really turning out some nice products of late, and Honda (once considered a leader) has some work ahead to catch up.

I volunteered to help with the Briggs and Stratton minibike shootout. I didn't know you guys were serious!

Great little bikes with enough grunt to be dangerous. Migh be nice to have one of these days.

The KLX has an after market larger tank available, barely larger. I'm looking at this market for a second bike, the alternative being a "real" DP bike. A larger aftermarket tank would help.

Looks like standard Honda procedure these days. Sell a pedestrian product and pretend to be the industry leader. At least for once the Honda wasn't the most expensive. Considering the comparative performance it should be substantially cheaper than the other bikes. "Honda superior quality" has been a myth for a couple of decades at least.
