Kawasaki KLV 1000 2005

Menus

Surprise! A big road trail arrives in the Kawasaki range. It is wise. The segment is buoyant and this fills a gap in the manufacturer. A big V-twin in an aluminum perimeter frame. Well. Lots of torque, plenty of options for carrying luggage, a big tank.

Very well. And what she looks like ?

… Uh, I think you’re wrong: it’s a V-strom in the picture. But no, there is no mistake. This is the slightly retouched Suzuki trail. Remember not so long ago. The two Japanese manufacturers have come together to design models together. After the 1600 MeanStreak – Marauder, here is their new clone. In order to obtain its own identity, the KLV differs from the V-strom by a frame and a swingarm painted in black, a unique orange color and different tank stickers. It’s not much – Would it have been so difficult to create his own face with a different fork crown?!? For the rest, from the dashboard to the engine through the plastics, it’s all the same. After the Z 1000, 750, and the thunderous ZX-10R, it would be surprising if the greens returned to a certain conformism. To form an opinion, reading the V-strom test is worth all the talk.
