Might be a great bike!
Then, again, what about the 650 Versys? REALLY affordable prices on these bikes; don't know how close they come to Africa Twin performance. The Versys has road manners the KLR650 can only dream of, with some dirt-and-gravel road capability.
Then, the Versys 1000 now appears in the US. Probably heavier than the Africa Twin, but might offer more power.
DISCLAIMER: I'm NOT Kawasaki-centric. Just wondering what the Africa Twin brings to the table, beyond existing machines' offerings. I wish Honda success with Africa Twin marketing in the US; riders profit from motorcycle diversity, IMHO.
