You must mean a KLX650 with a bigger gas tank! They already made the base model without the tank, but KLR riders wouldn't pay for the better suspension, increased performance, and a bit lighter weight. Never have, never will.
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
