The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 300: A Dual-Sport Masterpiece

The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 300 is one of two brand new models from the venerable Japanese brand. Based on the KLX 300R platform, the KLX 300 takes the off-road bike and gives it a more street friendly stance. It uses the same 292cc liquid cooled, four stroke single, with the same 33 HP and 21 lb-ft of torque.

Kawasaki then takes off the fully off-road tires and gives it more friendly tires that still have off-road grip, but are sticky enough for on-road use. Indicators, a license plate holder, headlight, fully digital instrumentation and a muffler that cuts down on the noise are then added, A slightly stiffer front shock and a fully adjustable rear shock complete the trail-bike-to-dual-sport modifications.

The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 300 starts at $5,599 USD / $6,499 CAD.
