All our motorcycles are 650cc late model 2008 Kawasaki KLR650’s kept in mint condition and maintained after every ride. The 2008 model is an improvement on the previous model that was in production for over 21 years that had become legendary in adventure riding circles.pic4

KLR650’s have been ridden to the Arctic, across North and South America, and throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia, as well as on full global circumnavigation rides. Nicknames include "Swamp Thing", "The Mule", "The Tractor" and affectionately in South Africa “die Stofdonkie”.

The 2008 Kawasaki KLR650 is a robust, comfortable, easy handling and an extremely reliable motorcycle that has way more than sufficient power, especially on gravel roads.

The KLR’s constant torque curve makes it a very predictable and easy bike to ride. Most road bike riders with no gravel road experience have commented that they have found the KLR650 to be very forgiving when getting into situations they have found to be a bit challenging.
