The Best of Both Worlds

The best of both worlds: You want a bike that’s good in the dirt, and you want it to be street legal for running into town or down the highway, too. Kawasaki has the answer with do-it-all dual-purpose bikes that come packed with exclusive features for you to explore new heights of on- and off-highway riding and exploration.
The all-new Super Sherpa™ redefines the dual purpose motorcycle. Not only is it built to tackle a wide range of terrain, but it is engineered to appeal to a broad spectrum of riders.

If you are looking for a lightweight four-stroke 250, then you’ll be delighted with the KLR250. It’s got the goods for on and off highway excursions, like plush long travel suspension and high ground clearance.

Or the KLR650. It takes you wherever, whenever in smooth, torquey comfort. And with its huge 6.1 gallon fuel tank, the journey continues long after the others stop. So make your own world perfect. On one of Kawasaki’s impressive dual-purpose machines.
