How fast is a KLR in the 1/4 mile?
Well, I can tell you.
Not that fast, but right about where I expected.
A buddy and I went to the dragstrip yesterday. He got to run, but I didn't. No high leather boots. Oh well. Here are a couple of pics. The scooter is a 2012 KLR, box stock, with a 230 lb rider.
He made about a dozen passes, and with the exception of one run where he was asleep at the light, all of his runs were fairly close to each other....within a few .1 of a second and a couple of MPH.
The KLR is vehicle 10, right slip, left column.
2008 KLR 650
2000 Yamaha Venture
On two wheels for more than 45 years...
