Except for the S model’s suspension settings, the basic Kawasaki KLR650 chassis platform remains unchanged: the same semi-double-cradle frame, braking system, wheels, and tires. The front brake uses a single 300mm rotor and a two-piston caliper, with ABS available as an option. The KLR650 S rolls on a 21-inch front wheel shod with 90/90-21 semi-knobby tire and a 17-inch rear (130/80-17). Among the options are heated grips and a set of additional LED front lights; to help power them the electrical system puts out 26 amps. The generous fairing offers adequate comfort for long hauls, while electronics here are limited to a large TFT instrumentation display.
