V2, fuel injection, six speeds, 5.8 gal - - - I really like the idea of fuel injection and 6 speeds; and have been somewhat surprized Kawa hasn't done that with KLR over the years. But then I kinda like the old school echoes of the klr, particularily being a big bore single piston - its a relatively simple piece of machinery compared to many rides above 650cc. Although I don't want a return to kick start on the KLR, I do wish on and off was stripped down to just turning the key - that kick stand on/off tie in leaves me feeling a bit foolish - I tend not to like features that redundently protect me from myself. - - - but I'm digressing. I sure see a lot of V-stroms. Today, I drove from Kalispell, MT to Spokane, WA (by car) and saw four V-Stroms (all blue).
