I'm bored. We can go there, tongue in cheek of course.
We already know it's a great bike if not the best all around motorcycle on the planet.
With the disclaimer outta the way........ Hmm......
"The rugged and tough KLR 650" Yep, after new subframe bolts.
"Significant bottoming resistance" offered by the suspension: True, on an unloaded bike and the rider weighs
120 lbs give or take.
"Long travel forks" The shortest distance in it's class, but longer than streetbikes.
"multi contoured seat / makes an easy reach to the ground" It ain't stitched right./ For said 120 lb rider
to have at least 32" inseam.
"Rock solid 651cc engine" After it seizes from a failed doo it fuses together like a rock.
"provides ample horsepower" Indeed, to go at least 80 mph downhill.
"neutral position under heavy braking" That means it doesn't dive as much as Gen 1.
"An engine guard keeps gravel and loose rocks at bay" Might not be a guard there for the second hit though.
"competent on road performer" True, except for highways.
There could be a few more I'm sure. Just havin' some fun with the advertising departments' newbies.
Bossguy speaking to the Clearasil-laden marketing dept most recent hire:
("Hey, kid. This bike hasn't changed much in over 30 years. Make it the machine everyone wants to buy
and I'll take you to lunch.")
Ride on, and bring extra Rotella in the Genuine Kawasaki Optional Accessory luggage,
This is my son, with whom I am well pleased." ----God
