GET OUT AND PLAY
Whether riding off-road, dual-sport or supermoto, every bike in the KLX lineup brings the fun to new and experienced riders alike.
Taking cues from the KLX off-road line as well as the adventure capabilities of the KLR650, the 2022 street legal, dual-purpose motorcycles come ready with all the tools necessary to deliver an exciting riding experience on paved streets, back roads, wooded trails and beyond.
The Kawasaki KLX family of dual-purpose motorcycles has been purpose-built to provide serious fun on the street, track and on the trails for riders of all skill levels. The KLX300 dual-sport is designed to provide unlimited on- and off-road fun. As the flagship dual-sport in the KLX lineup, the KLX300 bridges the gap between the ultimate daily commuter and weekend play bike. The powerful 292cc fuel-injected, liquid-cooled four-stroke engine features an easy-to-use powerband, electric starter and cam profiles sourced from the KLX300R off-road model. It comes equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, 21” wheel up front and 18” wheel in the back and dual-sport tuned long-travel suspension for optimal ground clearance.
The 2022 KLX300SM takes the fun to the streets in full supermoto style. Developed alongside the KLX300 dual-sport, the KLX300SM shares a similar engine and chassis with its dual-sport counterpart. Where the models differ is over styling and use, as the KLX300SM receives a host of supermoto inspired components. This includes 17” front and rear wheels paired with street tires, supermoto tuned suspension and aggressive styling. These differences establish the KLX300SM as the ultimate lightweight supermoto.
For 2022, Kawasaki welcomed the return of the widely popular and critically acclaimed all-new KLR 650 motorcycle to its street legal lineup. The all-new 2022 KLR650 is equipped with a powerful 652cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine, offering increased reliability and fuel efficient. Featuring new technology updates, the KLR650 comes equipped with a new multi-functional digital instrumentation panel with a fuel gauge that is paired with a new fuel tank design for greater usable volume. Several other parts have also been updated for increased rider confidence when carrying luggage, reduced vibrations and increased generator capacity, all of which contribute to the improved performance and ride comfort needed when searching for a tough adventure partner. The all-new KLR650 features a new styling and a LED headlight and an additional trim level has been added to the lineup. The KLR 650 ADVENTURE model is now available both with and without ABS brakes, and comes equipped with factory-installed side cases, LED auxiliary light set, engine guards, tank pad, and both DC power outlet and USB socket and will be available this summer in the Cypher Camo Gray colorway.
