Information: 2006 Kawasaki KLR650 <P> The Kawasaki KLR650 has some of the most loyal fans in motorcycling and the reason is simple: this big-bore dual-purpose bike provides riders with amazing versatility to travel far beyond the city streets and highways of America. With its comfortable ergonomics, off-highway capability, large fuel tank and optional accessories, the KLR650 is the ultimate world traveler. Power for the KLR650 comes from a strong, dual overhead cam, four-valve, liquid-cooled, single cylinder, 651cc four-stroke engine. The engine provides a wide range of power equally suitable for negotiating low-speed trails and cruising at a more brisk highway pace. An engine crankshaft counterbalancer and electric starter provide additional rider comfort and convenience. The frame for the KLR650 is made of round-section high-tensile steel, and a detachable rear subframe simplifies maintenance by providing easier access to the airbox, carburetor and rear shock. Adjustable, long-travel suspension provides a plush ride on both pavement and off-road. A U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor provides access to any road open to licensed vehicles, while a sturdy engine guard protects the engine from loose rocks and gravel. With an optional Kawasaki tank bag and soft luggage on the large standard rear rack, KLR650 owners can tote enough gear for an extended trip to any remote location.
