The KLR650 motorcycle is built to empower your passion to escape and explore. Dual-purpose capability allows the journey to go on- and off-road, and a reputation for enduring reliability helps you focus on the adventure at hand. For decades, the legendary KLR650 platform has inspired countless stories from all over the world, and the spirit to make new memories continues to beckon today.

Tough Adventure Partner

A key component of the long-running KLR650’s reputation as a trusty steed, the liquid-cooled DOHC single benefits from fuel injection. In addition to the reliable starting and fuel efficiency offered by FI, a generously sized fuel tank enables long ranges between fuel stops. Another feature for the KLR650 is ABS, which adds to riding confidence.

Rock-Solid 652 cc Single

The KLR650’s 652 cc four-valve single produces a flat power curve that lets you navigate trails and cruise at freeways speeds effortlessly. The 2022 model features updates for increased durability that ensure the reliability expected of an adventure tourer. Stronger mid-range focused performance and increased generator capacity meet the needs of riders heading out for an adventure.

Efficient Combustion

Fuel injection offers impressive fuel efficiency and reliable starting in cold conditions or at high altitude.

23-litre, Large-Volume Fuel Tank

The fuel tank has a 23-litre capacity, enabling a long cruising range.

Large Front Disc Plus ABS

In addition to a larger (o300 mm) front disc that delivers excellent stopping power, ABS offers increased rider reassurance.

Travel Further in Comfort

While retaining the highly-acclaimed reliability of its predecessor, the 2022 KLR650 elevates its touring potential to the next level. Frame revisions contribute to composed handling character, and rubber mounts add to rider comfort. The increased comfort and greater carrying capacity facilitate long-distance touring.

Riding Composure

Based on the high-tensile steel, semi-double cradle frame that has established a great level of trust from the market over the past 30 years, an integrated rear frame and a long swingarm contribute to composed handling at highway speeds, with and without luggage.

High-level Ride Comfort

Fine-tuned riding position is relaxed, facilitating long hours in the saddle. Rubber-mounted handlebar and footpegs, and rubber dampers under the seat help to manage vibrations for great ride comfort.

Remarkable Wind Protection

Tall windshield with two-position adjustability offers excellent wind protection.

KLR650-Exclusive Panniers and Top Case (Accessory)

Panniers and top case developed in collaboration with SHAD are available as accessories*. One-key compatibility and a top-opening design makes it easy to add and remove items. Complementing the accessory panniers and top case, a large aluminium rear cargo rack contributes to carrying capacity.*Panniers are standard equipment on the KLR650 Adventure.

Power for Accessories

To meet the power needs of grip heaters, fog lamps and other electrical accessories, the ACG has an output of 26 A. A total capacity of 80 W is available to power accessories (depending on usage).

Capability Reflected in Appearance

Shroud design and carefully selected colour & graphics strengthen the KLR650’s well-established tough, adventure image.

Robust Design

The imposing chassis, large fuel tank and protector-equipped shrouds contribute to a tough, functional design that boldly expresses the KLR650’s robustness and spirit of adventure.

Light Up the Road Ahead

LED headlight complements the bold styling, while offering bright illumination and low energy consumption.

Adventure-Style Colour & Graphics

Carefully selected colours enhance the KLR650’s adventure image. The Pearl Sand Khaki conjures the image of adventure on the wide, open desert, while Cypher Camo Gray amplifies the machine’s aggressive looks.Non-currrent colour also shown
