It's a nice bike...
By Nol Ziggen(Owner), Apr. 8, 2009
This is my first KLR. Actually it is my first dual sport bike ever. This bike is comfortable, reliable, and extremely fun to ride. Oh yeah, and the gas mileage is as great as I was told about the klr before buying. The only complaint I have about this bike is the power. When I first rode it I w... Read Full Review

It just got better!
By Stephen Hornby(Owner), Apr. 30, 2009
This is my second KLR650 in a row! I put 25000k on my 2004 and loved it so much I bought a 2009. I seems that they fixed most everything that I didn't like on the 09. I have riden for more than 40 years and I couldn't say how many bikes I've owned. The 09 KLR is an awsome bike for a great price. ... Read Full Review

The new Kawa KLR 650
Jan. 23, 2009

It does excel overal as a rugged biked. Won't win on the highway but won't be left behind. Indeed, more ahead. Sup... Read Full Review

By Jeff Kraby(Owner), Jun. 4, 2009
I just purchased the 2009 KLR 650 in Black w/ green highlites. I have been riding kawi's since my 85' KX 80. I had a few older honda cruisers years ago and finally just got my first brand new bike.

OOPS ! Dont judge a book by its cover !
By Shilom (Izzy) Johnson(Owner), Jan. 7, 2009
Wow ! Looks like the bike of the year . But what happened to the power ? (very gutless) Also the windshield and excess. are not very functional . The wind travels rapidly through the hole in the forks up to your face , bringing road temperature and exhaust to your face . One more minor problem ? ... Read Full Review
