Just saw it on Kawasaki's web site today for the first time. I didn't see a thread, so I hope this isn't a double post. MSRP is $6,299. Black, Red or Blue with the black frame and wheel threatment that Australia got.
It seems the MSRP gap between the "Big 3" has narrowed quite a bit. From what I've read, the Suzuki DR650 isn't being offered new this year. Suzuki has done that with the DR in the past; basically skipped a year. Last year's DR650 MSRP was $6399 but I'm not sure about this year since it's not listed anywhere: I assume it's about the same.
The 2012 Honda XR650L lists at $6690.
KLR's still the cheapest of the three, but not by much. In the past, I recall the Honda listing at nearly $1000 more than the other two when I was shopping around.
