Nice Rider Magazine Gen 1 KLR650 Article March 2018

I got my Rider Magazine today. Naturally it is the March 2018 issue . . . . but anyway . . . . there's a brief but nice article on Gen 1 KLR650's. They're calling it their "Re-Cycled" series. A copy of the article is attached, for your reading pleasure.

I also agree with good article.

Did you all read the partial article on the ZERO? $18,690.00 "offset somewhat by state & federal Tax Credits".
Really, for a Luxury Play Toy! Stand alone or Go Away!

$$$$

You talk about $$, did you happen to read the Harley writeup in the Feb. issue? Upwards of $40,000 for some of their bikes.

I'll BET that there is still the EPA loop hole regarding exhaust emissions on small volume (less than 5000 units per year) production models.

Did you ever Wonder Why, a simple paint color or shape of exhaust was/is a whole new model number in the Harley Davidson line up?

Lol, looks like it's time for a whole nother article. But isn't Kawasaki using a loophole for emissions which is why they haven't changed their technology from carbs to FI?
