New motorcycle items for 2022
Kawasaki brings a new KLR 650 for the North American market.
The 652 cubic stew, which also ran in Germany up to Euro 4, continues to serve as the engine.
The new US version has 52 Nm, five more than we did last time.
Kawasaki offers three versions, Standard, Traveler, Adventure.
The Traveler comes with a TopCase, only in Pearl Lava Orange and will cost $ 7,399.
The standard version can be ordered with or without ABS for $ 6,699 or $ 6,999.
The new KLR 650 is optionally available in Pearl Sand Khaki or Pearl Lava Orange.
The $ 7,999 Adventure has a side case system and storm bar and is only available in Cypher Camo Gray.
The proven Singel with 652 cubic meters is still allowed on the streets in America. Thanks to the new injection and exhaust system, it only delivers 52 Nm, horsepower previously unknown. But should be between 45 and 50 hp.
New to the KLR 650 is an LED main headlight and the two-way adjustable windshield, even in the basic version
A completely digital cockpit with a fuel gauge. The switch for the fog lights should be reserved for the Adventure, the system can be retrofitted to the other two versions.

KLR 650 back in America
Kawasaki has made the old 650 stew fit again for the market in North America and built a new KLR 650 around it. Unfortunately no KLR based on Versys and not for Europe either.
There was definitely a lot of anticipation here and there for a KLR 650 with the 650 twin from the Versys. Quasi a Tenere of Kawasaki And it was hoped that it would be presented today for the North American market with a strong affinity for off-roading, so that it could soon also cross the Atlantic. Nothing.
New KLR 650 only for America
Kawasaki does not offer the new KLR 650 for Europe and is clearly aimed at the North American markets of the USA and Canada. Euro 5 is not an issue there, so the old, new 650 single can play again. It gets a new injection and a new exhaust system. This gives it 52 Nm of torque from 652 cubic meters. At least 5 Nm more than it was allowed to have in its last Euro 3 compliant version. A maximum performance is not specified.
In the USA, the new KLR 650 comes optionally with ABS and in two versions: the Traveler with a topcase and the Adventure with side cases, crash bars and camouflage paintwork. Both have ABS as standard. Prices in the US start at $ 6,699 for the version without and $ 6,999 with ABS. The Traveler costs $ 7,399 and the Adventure costs a hefty $ 7,999.
Why not a KLR with twin?
The new edition of the single-cylinder KLR just across the Atlantic is clearly a result of the strict emission standards in Europe. With us, the Euro 5 engine simply wouldn’t work. The question of a new KLR with the 650 twin from Versys in order to occupy the market segment of light enduros around KTM and Yamaha cannot be answered satisfactorily enough for Japan from Germany with possible quantities. Here Kawasaki first has to serve the markets, which can lose a lot. In America in this case with an old stew. We just remain optimistic about Europe.
It runs very well in Europe for Kawasaki even without a modern KLR. The Nakedbike Z 900 and Z 650 have been generating good numbers for years, so the portfolio of the smallest Japanese giant does not have to be unnecessarily inflated with bikes that only enthusiasts would find good.
