The KLR650 is a touring-hungry dual-purpose bike like no other. Whether crossing the city or crossing the continent, on paved roads or on dirt, the KLR650 is a do-it-all bike that loves to travel long distances.




Redesigned seat is slimmer at the front (between the rider’s thighs) and about 30 mm wider at the rear (at the rider’s derrière), delivering increased ride comfort on longer rides and better accommodating a wider range of riders. 


The seat’s new styling also contributes to improved appearance of the bike in this area.


Changes to the 41 mm telescopic fork include stiffer springs, increased oil height and revised damping settings (for stronger rebound damping) to better suit on-road riding situations as well as heavier loads, which contribute to increased ride comfort and improved handling.


At the rear, changes to the Uni-Trak and single-shock rear suspension (stiffer spring and stronger rebound damping) to better accommodate on-road riding and heavier loads also contribute to the increased ride comfort and improved handling.
