Reliability & build quality Our Kawasaki KLR 650 owners’ reviews show the bike is extremely popular, with the only negative comments around the hard seat (after 40 miles of riding), poor dipped headlight and some minor frame paint issues.

Is the KLR650 any good?

The KLR650 is not a performance dual-sport motorcycle. The KLR650 felt impressively stable on the highway.
