2016 Kawasaki KLR650 Motorcycle First Test Review: http://bit.ly/2mEdvVN

The Kawasaki KLR650 has been on the roads since the late 1980’s and has proven to be a durable, reliable and capable adventure machine. Whether you’re exploring off the beaten path or logging serious miles on the asphalt, the KLR650 is hard to beat for sheer do-it-all prowess. Find out more in our written review (link above).

I’ve always liked the KLR, just not enough to buy one over a more powerful bike. It’s good for what it is, but not impressive by any means. You could de-tune any bike to make less than half it’s expected power and it would be just as reliable, which is something that impresses a lot of people strangely. Good looking bike though.

Keltingr says:

I won;t buy a KLR until they put fuel injection, this carb nonsense is a joke and left me stranded on a trip on my 2003 with carb issues. Never again

Joe V. says:

great video of great bike!

Nadab Yisrael says:

Good job. I made the right choice. My KLR is the best bike I’ve ever owned. I’m at 21k miles and still no new doohickey.

bob dudeface says:

These are supposed to get 55 to 60 mpg.

Devil's Cadillac says:

You ride where I ride. Great video!

Aleksandar Bozovic says:

In my opinion KLR should never change. It is the rare old school adventure bike. If somebody needs modern adventure bike, the market ih huge, but if you like something that works well for 30 years, proven workhorse, the KLR is the best choice. No changes for good old KLR.

Jose Arevalo says:

My first KLR went 98K miles with nothing more than oil changes.

adamaj says:

If only it was fuel injected.

Bill Cow says:

If you include ‘fuel injection’ in your comment just move on.  You don’t get it and never will.

giff74 says:

Good review, but two words…. Fuel Injection! Please!!!!!!

Sairus soliman says:

this is really great review video ..
I had the KLR 650 long time and totally loveeeed it .and I wish the KLR would be available in the UK market .
PS the camo color really looks badass soo KLR

Keltingr says:

NEEDS FUEL INJECTION THIS IS NOT 1974 ANYMORE

Anthony Gilham says:

just got a klr today

Merry Christmas says:

First thing you need to do to any new KLR is put a Slip on exhaust on. The stock muffler is WAAAY too limiting. You will double the power and torque throughout the entire rpm range. I recommend the American made DG exhaust for under $200. TRUST ME!!! You will not regret it! No need to re jet the carb unless you change the head pipe also.

Nikolajaren says:

Hi. At what city was this filmed?

Kennon Davis says:

I’m about 5’8″. would that be tall enough to touch the ground?

Daniel Pritchett says:

for the extra 100 bucks on the 2017 you get larger front brakes

1990 says:

An old classic.

Iowarail says:

off-road, it’s heavy to pick up but i am getting better at it and falling down too.

Hulyuh MadaKant says:

Hey look it’s Alex chacons wanna be brotherin law… awww you reviewed a klr.. cool story bhai

Vagabond says:

Why buy this when you can get a KTM 690 Enduro for the same price and it comes with direct fuel injection.

db30 says:

I like my first generation, 2007, KLR 650. I’ve heard that the 2nd gen has issues with burning oil.

Terri Cragen says:

Nice review: good production and I especially like how there are several points where we can hear the motor running. Good insights into the bike, too. I have a 2016 model just like your test bike; the “new” model seat and springs really make a huge difference over my former 2012 model. I like these bikes because they are comfortable for my 6′ frame. I love the upright seating position and the roominess of the seat-to-peg distance.

Texas ADV says:

awesome video. It’s nice to see some KLR love from the motorcycle media crowd.

advrider777 says:

best bike ever

SoloRide ZX says:

my next logic adventure bike..hope so..wish if instrument had fuel needle..or digital ‘something”..btw you don’t have to break the bank..

Byron Jolly says:

ive had mine for 2 years now . its my 4th bike . all have been enduros. this is by far the best. its a mule . were you point it , it will go. i ride mud with no problem. off road with no trail. highway all day. you cant go wrong with a klr .

BigTVideos says:

Great video, I love this bike. Check out my thoughts on it. https://youtu.be/iL6CAf4gazw.

Hulyuh MadaKant says:

ABS?? Hahaha cool story man.. I

Merry Christmas says:

I get 50-55 mpg on my 2016

Rolando Topete says:

I want change my xr 125 Honda ( please don’t laf ) do you recommend this model for Every day use? I live in Mexico City with heavy traffic and long red lights…

giff74 says:

So I’ve owned two DR650’s and road a couple of KLR650’s and the things I can’t understand is why neither manufacturer will make an updated version of their bike? I can only guess the parts they use are so old that they’re almost free and the bikes make them a big margin? Fuel injection, front wheel ABS, modern gauges and a few more horsepower is what I’m talking about.

good review, thanx!

Jay Gressman says:

great review

Travis Donald Stanley says:

Excellent work! The KLR is a living legend in North America. Best On-line and parts support of any ADV bike in North America. I’ll never buy one new or used, but folks seem to really like them. I went with the MIGHTY DR, the high speed low drag KLR. The KLR does have more value than the DR650, thanks to the updated Suspension in 2014.

Derrick Murphy says:

A few upgrades for the KLR would also up the price before you know it ,it would enter a new bracket on the shop floor $7650.or something crazy.it would be a totally different bike and start competing with the bmws.That would be the end of the klr as we know it.its a cult bike now so I say leave any upgrades to a minimum. good review thanks.

ezra4no1 says:

For those who’ve owned a KLR… Was it me, or was the reviewer searching really hard to find ways to be very optimistical about the bike.. :)
