Difference between KLR and Tengai

I am looking at a Tengai with 5k on it and am wondering between a regular and a Tengai. Aside from the plastics, is there any difference in the engine etc etc?

You got red on you.

The suspension has an inch or so less travel, making the seat height lower.

Larger front brake rotor with guard. The caliper is a double piston unit.

Push to cancel turn signals

Instrument cluster is different, and are not fixed as on the A model.

Front forks are different to accommodate the fender and caliper mounting, and the stanchion tubes are 4mm compared to 3mm on the A models..

Basic drive train is the same as an A model.

Seems there was some rumor regarding the Tengai have a higher output electrical system. I have never been able to confirm that.
