KLEs in the middle east

So I just got back from a couple week trip to the middle east and now that I am riding a KLR I noticed this time how many of these KLEs around there were. Only 2 BMWs, and 2 sport bikes I didn't get close enough to see brands, the rest of the motorcycles were KLEs standing out from the mass of scooters. They look like Gen1 KLRs but slightly slimmer and lower with street tires and fenders. After some smoozing with a group of locals I managed to get a ride on one. They are 500 twins and have noticeably more power then the KLR and was a blast to ride where traffic laws are really just "suggested."

A little research on the net and I found out that the US and Euro ones became the Versys. Here is the shot I took of one before I found time to ride one for myself.
