Anywhere, Anytime

Wherever the destination, whatever the distance, over any kind of terrain, one of Australia's favourite Adventure bikes, the KLR650 is the motorcycle to get you there in style and comfort. With its large powerful engine, long travel suspension and massive fuel carrying capacity combined with rock-solid reliability and unbreakable toughness, the big KLR makes short work of rugged outback tracks, wide open deserts and inner city traffic alike.

The KLR650 continues its reputation for being more rugged, more reliable and higher performing, delivering the ultimate in all-round fun.  The KLR650 is the choice of Adventure Riders across Australia. 

Strong Chassis

Effective suspension settings, stiff spokes, lightweight petal disc brakes, a D-section swingarm and forged axle holders are just some of the features of the KLR’s chassis that contribute to its incredible handling and all-round road holding.

Equiped to go Anywhere

Firm seat foam, great weather protection, a powerful dual-bulb headlight and generous generator output make for greater long-distance touring capabilities and are complemented by a easy-to-read frame-mounted instrument panel that enables lighter steering and features a large speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meter and water temp gauge.

Multi Countoured Seat

The KLR650 features a multi-contoured  seat with a dimpled cover. Narrow at the front and wide at the rear to deliver impressive comfort on longer rides and better suit a wider range of riders. The KLR650 is made for adventure and now you can enjoy it for longer.

Front Suspension

The 41 mm front fork last featured an upgrade in 2014, which then included stiffer springs, increased oil height and revised damping settings (for stronger rebound damping). Set-up to better suit on-road riding situations and heavier loads.  This all contributes to an increase in ride comfort and an improvement in handling.

Long Range Touring

Thanks to a massive 22.0 Litre fuel capacity, the KLR650 has the long-distance touring range to ride off into the sunset and back again. If it’s commuting you are doing, then you won’t be planning on visiting the petrol station too often! A great range of genuine accessories adds to the functionality of the KLR650.

Rear Suspension

Changes in 2014 included revision to the  Uni-Trak single-shock rear suspension with a stiffer spring and stronger rebound damping. The upgrades add to the handling and assist with load carrying for the biggest of adventures.


Precise cam-timing and  intake porting, a one-piece exhaust system and a fully transistorised ignition adds up to thumping power across the big 651cc four stroke’s rev-range.  Big, strong and reliable......the KLR650

Liquid Cooling

The KLR’s sophisticated liquid cooling system employs an automatic cooling fan to maintain airflow at low speeds. Cooler engine temperatures allow tighter internal tolerances for quieter operation and longer engine life.  the perfect cooling for the long treks through Australia.
