this is my first KLR. I’ve had a 250L, Versys X300, and currently have a Vstrom 650 and SWM RS500R. I would describe the power as adequate and predictable. It’s not a revver like the 500. It’s linear, luggable. Not a match for Vstrom acceleration. But it can lug along a gear too high at low speeds. It gets you to 75mph reasonably. You still have room to go after that. I hit 91 today as top speed. A minor rebound adjustment to slow the shock down helped it immensely from showroom. Otherwise, suspension is good enough for dirt roads and gravel that I run. I’m going to do something to the rubber mounted pegs to firm that up. Going to get wider platform pegs for standing stability. Brakes feel really good to me. This is non abs model. I’ve had no issues with them. Seat is good. No reason to upgrade that. I will be adding bar risers and real hand guards. Windscreen works fine for me. I’m 6ft even (182cm). No buffeting. I wish it had a tachometer, but not a deal breaker. This is a low rpm bike like a diesel. I cringe at the sight of the rear brake line routing. I will want to clean that situation up sometime. This base model doesn’t have charge port standard. No biggie. There’s a blank on right side of dash for aftermarket addition. According to the manual, there is already wiring in place for power port, aux lights, and heated grips. There’s also a blank port on left side. Maybe add a power port and voltmeter in there. I upgraded tires before delivery. My group of guys always finds nasty stuff to ride. I want tires for the worst case scenario, so Kenda Trackmaster rear and Goldentyre Fatty 216 up front. Right now, waiting for aftermarket to bring out crash bar options. I’m researching tank bags and soft luggage for future trips.
