Fresh orange styling, coupled with proven performance
Is it really anything other than a cynical rehash?
As big trailies go, the KLV is on a par with the Honda Varadero, not quite as good as Aprilia's Caponord and no where near as good as the BMW R1200GS

Overall Review

Used to have KLR, later CBR 1100XX but I prefer riding KLV. Really fun, fast enough, comfortable for two. Riding between 4K - 6K rews is really fun.

Strengths

Just regular maintains after 80.000 km with no need for reparations or similar annoyance. Reliable

Weaknesses

Well known electronic problem after some time highway riding. Need new mapping but I don't ride highways anyway. Speedometer shows about 15km/h more than it is real.
