651cc Four-stroke Single
  • Revised cam timing contributes to improved high-rpm performance
  • New intake porting offers greater low-end torque
  • New piston rings are thinner and have more tension, for improved oil consumption
  • New one-piece exhaust pipe features smoother bends for improved exhaust efficiency at all rpm
  • Special tuning to improve low- and mid-range power
  • Light, silent cam chain reduces engine noise
  • Oil-level window permits easy and accurate inspection
Liquid Cooling
  • New Denso radiator is thin and lightweight. Fitted with a lightweight and thin cooling fan, the new radiator has a greater cooling area and offers a 20% increase in cooling efficiency
  • Maintains consistent engine temperatures for long engine life and sustained power during hard use
  • Allows tighter engine clearances for quieter running
  • Automatic fan keeps things cool in all conditions
  • Includes a temperature gauge
Four-valve Cylinder Head
  • Better breathing for more power at all rpm
  • Compact combustion chamber allows increased compression ratio with less detonation
  • The use of a secondary air (ASV) system helps reduce harmful exhaust emissions
  • Provides maximum valve area for optimum flow
  • Boosts low-end torque
Double Engine Balancer
  • Engine runs smoothly from idle to redline for rider comfort and less fatigue on long rides
Fully Transistorised Ignition
  • Fully transistorised ignition unit replaces the earlier analog CDI for better ignition performance
  • More precisely controls timing no matter how fast the rpm changes
  • Fewer moving parts for long, trouble-free life
Five-speed Transmission
  • Designed to handle the engine's unique power characteristics
  • The engine's broad torque curve only requires five speeds for off-road and relaxed highway cruising
  • O-ring drive chain reduces maintenance and increases chain service life
Handlebar-mounted Choke
  • Convenient location makes starting and warm-up easier
Revised Front Suspension
  • New, beefier 41mm front fork is offers increased rigidity. (Previous unit was 38mm)
  • Re-calibrated suspension offers less static sag and now offers greater on-road riding performance.
  • Front suspension stroke was reduced from 9.1 in. to 7.9 in.
  • High-mounted front fender for any adventure-touring situation
Revised UNI-TRAK® Rear Suspension
  • Rear suspension travel was reduced from 8.1 in. to 7.3 in. but usable travel is unaffected due to a reduction in static sag
  • New D-section swingarm contributes to the bike's excellent traction
  • Redesigned UNI-TRAK® linkage compliments front suspension changes
  • Progressive rate provides a smoother, more controlled ride
  • Features a five-way preload shock absorber with four-way rebound damping
Stronger Wheels
  • New 4mm spokes (up from 3.5mm) provide increased wheel stiffness, enhanced handling performance and improved steering response.
Semi-double Cradle Frame
  • Made of high-tech, round-section, high-tensile steel
Engine Guard
  • Protects engine from rocks and trail debris when the going gets tough
Detachable Rear Subframe
  • Simplifies maintenance by providing better access to the rear shock, airbox and carburetor
  • Large rear cargo rack included
Front and Rear Disc Brakes
  • New lightweight front and rear petal discs offer excellent braking.
  • Front brake disc diameter increased from 260mm to 280mm.
  • New rear calliper offers improved feel and power
Electric Starter
  • Easy and convenient starting
Lighting and USFS-Approved Spark Arrestor
  • New dual-bulb headlamp offers greater night visibility
  • New high-mounted turn signals improve the KLR650's visibility at night or under poor visibility conditions
  • Rear taillight parking light
  • U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor
Large 6.1-gallon Fuel Tank
  • Significant capacity permits adventure touring
Additional Comfort and Touring Features
  • All-new bodywork features a larger fairing, which contributes to increased wind protection
  • Alternator output has been increased from 14.5A to 17A. Total capacity is 36W to provide ample power for the new headlight as well as add-on grip heaters and other accessories
  • New, easy-to-read instrument panel is mounted to the frame, contributing to lighter steering
  • Full instrumentation includes a large-face speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meter and water temperature gauge
  • Firmer urethane seat foam offers greater comfort for long-distance riding
  • Seat height is lower, but reduced suspension sag means the rider's ability to reach the ground is about the same
