What you apparently have access to there, is a 1985 KL600-B1 (KLR600).
Second year for the KL600, but now with Electric start. (1st year was KL600-A1, kickstart only.) Therefore the model # change from A to B.

The 600 was actually only 564cc of displacement. or 0.564liter on the cylinder base casting. They are a more dirt oriented bike than the KLR650 series, but will easily run 70mph all day long if desired/required.
