Should I trade the KLR??

This thing looks FUN

Never pick a fight with an old man.. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you..

Bore & Stroke near KLR size, 97.6mm x 80mm x 2cyl. But only 7000rpm red-line. Wonder why that is lower?
But a spec sheet shows 89 HP @ 7400rpm. Torque 81.1 lb-ft @ 3950rpm.

KLR650 bore & stroke, 100mm x 83mm, 7500rpm red-line.

I don't think that I would attempt to ride even the taller model (XE?) on the 2 track 4x4 routes in the Rocky Mountain rock pile that I live near & do ride the KLR in.
But it does have 9.8 inches of travel on both ends. 34.2 inch seat & only 456 pounds dry weight. No ground clearance listed.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting

that depends on usage and bank account balance. ;-) The Triumph is a better road bike and a worse offroad bike; depends what you do.
