2006 Kawasaki KLX300R

The ideal off-road motorcycle should combine tractable power with a comfortable chassis that can handle challenging trails.

Enter the KLX™300R. With its liquid-cooled four-stroke engine, perimeter frame and plush suspension, this Kawasaki gives off-road riders the balance of power and handling they want.

Designed to be ultra-compact, the KLX300R’s liquid-cooled 292cc engine features dual overhead cams activating four valves atop an Electrofusion-coated aluminum cylinder, which is wear resistant. The engine is wrapped in a high-tensile steel perimeter frame based on the design of Kawasaki’s championship-winning KX™ motocross bikes. A 26.5-degree steering angle and shorter wheelbase contribute to quick handling characteristics.

The KLX300R comes fully loaded with equipment to handle the rigors of trail riding, and is covered by a six-month limited warranty. Standard items include headlight and taillight, odometer, sidestand, hand guards, snail-type chain adjusters for quick rear-wheel removal and quick adjustment of the O-ring chain, a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor, and a large fuel tank with reserve petcock.

*Specifications are subject to change.



Ultra-compact 292cc Liquid-cooled, Four-stroke Single
– Lightweight piston and connecting rod allow power-producing revs
– Liquid cooling for even-running temperatures, longer engine life and consistent power on hot days

Double Overhead Cams
– A cam lobe for each valve with shim-under tappets has less reciprocating weight for efficiency at high rpm

Electrofusion Cylinder
– Incredibly hard coating in the aluminum cylinder provides superior heat transfer with less weight
– Holds lubrication, resists abrasion and seizure, and allows tighter clearances for more horsepower

Kawasaki Automatic Compression Release (KACR)
– KACR provides quick, easy starts

Four-valve Cylinder Head
– Provides maximum valve area for optimum flow
– Boosts low-end torque

34mm Semi-flat Slide CVK Carburetor
– Precisely meters for good fuel economy
– Provides quick throttle response

Gear-driven Engine Balancer
– Engine runs smoothly from idle to redline
– More rider comfort on long rides

Six-speed Transmission
– Positive shifting action and rugged durability with gearing for every situation
– Oil level window provided

Digital Capacitor Discharge Ignition (CDI)
– Digital microcomputer delivers a precisely timed spark regardless of rpm changes
– Reliability under extreme conditions

High-tensile Steel Perimeter Frame
– Frame is built of box-section and tubular high-tensile steel
– Straight-line ability is not sacrificed due to the incredible frame rigidity

43mm Upside-down Cartridge Fork
– 20-way compression damping adjustment
– Cartridge maintains more consistent damping force by minimizing aeration of the fork oil

UNI-TRAK® Rear Suspension
– Temperature-compensating rebound damping keeps things under control even when the shock heats up under strenuous conditions

Front and Rear Disc Brakes
– Twin piston front caliper grasps a floating front disc for “single finger” stopping power
– Single piston rear caliper from the KX™250 gives strong, reliable performance

O-ring Drive Chain
– O-rings keep the dirt and water out, while retaining lubrication in for longer chain life

Enduro and Trail Equipment
– Headlight and taillight for long rides or enduro competition requirements
– Odometer to track progress
– Large 2.6-gallon tank allows for long distance riding
