You must not have put many miles on the DR. It is thirty some pounds lighter than the KLR. If you didn't notice or feel the difference then perhaps you were on the highway? Try one off road or even on fire roads. I have a friend who owns a DRZ and a KLR. When he rides the DRZ I have a very hard time keeping up with him. When he rides the KLR he can NOT keep up with me anywhere but straight slab, and I can cruise just as fast and comfortably as he can. On twisty back roads I have to slow down and wait for him.
