Its Back!
« on: January 27, 2021, 05:13:20 PM »
The Kawasaki KLR650 is back for 2022 and is available in 3 versions: KLR650 base model, KLR650 Traveler and KLR650 Adventure (see photos below). News of it's release came on January 26, 2021. optional on the base model, but standard on the other versions.  From what I can tell, the engine and transmission are the same as the second generation model KLR650 and the old Kawasaki KLR650 carburetor is gone and replaced with fuel injection. Vehicle features on the base model are:
  • NEW Improved ergonomics and ride comfort
  • NEW Bodywork including fuel tank
  • NEW Taller two-position adjustable windshield
  • NEW Larger aluminum rear carrier
  • NEW Increased generator capacity
  • NEW LED headlight
The Kawasaki KLR 650 Traveler version comes with a reat trunk with USB and 12v DC outlets. Vehicle features of Traveler model are:
  • Top Case (optional One-key System)
  • DC and USB Sockets
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
The Kawasaki KLR650 Adventure model comes with hard saddle bags and these other features:
  • Side Cases (optional One-key System)
  • Fog Lamps
  • Frame Sliders
  • Tank Pad
  • DC and USB Sockets
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Special color & graphics: Cypher Camo Gray
It's nice to see Kawasaki did increase alternator output to power more accessories like heated gloves and heated vest without having to worry about the battery discharging.

Kawasaki now includes a lockable door for the tool box, and the rear rack has been redesigned (see photo). The dash has been completely redesigned with digital instrumentation. (see photo)  I wonder if accessories like the new saddle bags and rear trunk will be available for older model KLR650's?
