Utilizing a powerful, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled engine design along with the tried and true easy handling semi-double cradle frame design helps to keep the KLXR compact, while the balance between the engine and frame results in optimal trail performance.
A smooth and powerful cc fuel-injected, liquid-cooled four-stroke engine and easy handling, semi-double cradle frame were designed with reliability and durability for trail riding. Full-size wheels, long-travel suspension, ample ground clearance and large diameter front and rear disc brakes all contribute to the off-road capability of the KLXR motorcycle, as well as featuring KX-inspired styling and ergonomics for agile handling in a variety of conditions.
Kawasaki offers a machine that bridges the world between play bikes and racers. The KLXR delivers a significant step-up in both engine and chassis performance to bring a high level of off-road riding potential to riders looking for more power or racers looking for a machine better suited to recreational riding.
The new liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine is fuel-injected, delivering a crisp response, quick-revving nature, and strong low-end torque. The engine has a bore and stroke of A four-valve DOHC cylinder head design provides maximum valve area for optimum flow. The pentroof combustion chamber yields an Thanks to the use of an efficient cam design, a low reciprocating weight was achieved while also increasing efficiency at high rpm.
Cam profiles and intake port design contribute to the smooth, quick-revving engine character. The reliable and durable fuel injection system utilizes a 34 mm throttle body and a fine atomizing hole injector, which delivers a precise response for optimal control.
With fuel injection, fuel delivery is consistent regardless of outside air temperature or elevation. It also ensures excellent starting characteristics, whether the engine is hot or cold, and contributes to clean emissions. Together with fuel injection, electric start offers hassle-free starting at the push of a button. Performance and durability were top of mind when designing the engine of the KLXR motorcycle.
Features like a piston skirt were designed to minimize contact with the cylinder wall, hard Nikasil plating on the cylinder bore, and wider connecting rod big-end bearings were utilized for increased reliability. Dual high-capacity radiators, similar to those used on KX motocross bikes, deliver superior cooling efficiency. The radiators are very slim and feature a tightly packed core and fin configuration for excellent heat dispersion. An all-stainless steel exhaust system with a honeycomb catalyzer, located in the silencer, keeps emissions clean.
The silencer is fitted with a spark arrestor, which allows access to riding areas where required. The smooth-shifting six-speed transmission offers a gear for different riding situations, and is particularly effective when riding on long straightaways.
The frame of the KLXR is a lightweight semi-double cradle frame, which has served as the base design for countless Kawasaki off-road machines. The latest evolution of this proven frame delivers the durability to handle hard off-road riding, while rigidity is optimized for trail riding.
The boxed tubular-section high-tensile steel perimeter frame creates a slim, lightweight package with a A large, 43 mm inverted telescopic fork handles suspension duties up front, with The fork settings take advantage of the long travel, using a lower spring rate to allow damping to work over a wider stroke range, providing a very stable front end feeling.
The single rear shock absorber with piggyback reservoir is adjustable for rebound and compression damping, as well as preload, allowing riders to set the bike up to best suit their preference and weight. The wheels are equipped with new Dunlop MX52 tires for optimal handling and traction.
A large diameter mm front disc is gripped by a twin-piston caliper, utilizing the same size disc found on the full-size KX models, which offer strong, highly controllable braking. Slowing the rear is a large mm disc, gripped by a single-piston caliper. Both front and rear brake master cylinders are based on tried and true pieces from the other models in the Kawasaki off-road lineup.
The slim design of the frame and bodywork help the rider grip the bike for increased control, while the KX-inspired seat design offers great freedom of movement for off-road riding. Thanks to the compact design of the KLXR, a seat height of The seat uses a slip-resistant top surface to facilitate grip when seated and smooth sides for easy mobility.
Brake lever position is also adjustable, offering riders the ability to set the position to suit their hand size and preference. When equipped, California evaporative emissions equipment adds approximately 2. Always wear a helmet, eye protection and proper apparel. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
