Question KLR650 plastic model kit

Hey gang. 2016 KLR owner here. Just wondering if anyone has ever seen a model kit of a KLR? I've been looking around but haven't found anything. I'd love to build one that looks like mine.
I found this little model on ebay, but it's not a kit. Pretty cool display though for $12.

That's cute.
Sorry, I haven't seen a KLR model kit.

But I recently held a Lego BMW R1200GS in my hand. Lego has the single sided swingarm on the LH and the muffler on the RH, isn't that reverse of actual bike? $59.99. Has working suspension & working drivetrain, but the cylinder heads are missing so one can see the pistons pumping in & out.

Oh, Welcome to the forum KYMan64.
Many will be envious that you were able to post a pic with only 4 total postings. You must be very Computer savvy.

Muffler location on R1200GS

Re your statement regarding a Lego version of the BMW R1200GS: "Lego has the single sided swingarm on the LH and the muffler on the RH, isn't that reverse of actual bike?"

The location of the muffler/swing arm on the R1200GS all depends on the year. From the time the R12GS hit the market in ca. 1995 to 2012, the muffler was on the left side. With the water cooled version of the GS, introduced in 2013, the swing arm was located on the right side.

Just a bit of arcane knowledge, unless you are wanting to order a muffler for one of these bikes.

In photos, bike on left is a 2000, on the right is a 2014.
