I have seen some of the KLX 650's over here in NZ. Nice. Almost bought one but that would nave meant going over to the North Island and collecting. Settled on the KLR and still am not sorry.

Thanks for sharing.

The klx650 is a lot more hardcore than the klr. It's basically an enduro. Better suspension, more power, less weight, no range.
