Kawasaki KLE 500 1996

Menus

Walking on the flower beds of the Honda Transalp is not easy. KLE has learned this the hard way. The little Kawa trail has never managed to find a place in the sun despite obvious qualities. Its engine is that, redesigned, of the mini sporitvo-GT 500 GPZ.

It has been revised to offer more flexibility at the bottom and better consistency at mid-range. The frame is a conventional double steel cradle that does its job very well. When we discover it, its behavior turns out to be more distracting than its competitor from Honda. However, it is a pity for him that his twin cylinder provides in the towers the drive that the Transalp offers lower. The length is beautiful but all the same, we regret this lack of gniak in town. Not worried, the bike plays there with a smile. No worries about handling or driving. The machine is not lacking in liveliness and you can have fun on its handlebars. A little less for the braking which lacks a little power. Not sad, the KLE would not be against a renewed interest on the part of the public – it does not demerit.
