    When Kawasaki ceased production of the iconic KLR 650 in 2018, many thought the chances of the big thumper making a return to the lineup given current emissions standards to be more or less non-existent. Most speculation turned to entirely different possible scenarios, such as an all-new small parallel twin KLR or a more off-road focused Versys 650-based machine. The idea that Kawasaki could manage to update the trusty and venerable KLR in any significant way and retain the essence of the original 1987 Generation 1 KLR didn’t seem in the realm of possibility.

    Then in 2022, Kawasaki did just that, introducing a very familiar, but updated KLR. The new Gen 3 got EFI, ABS and a package sprinkled with updates across the chassis like LED lighting and desirable additions like a fuel gauge.

    On top of all that, Kawasaki pulled the rabbit out of the hat when they announced pricing, arguably the most quintessential KLR trait of all. The price of the brand-new 2022 Gen 3 KLR is exactly the same as the 2018 Gen 2 model it replaced.

    SW-MOTECH recognizes that Kawasaki’s popular KLR offers a good value to all types of riders and has been developing premium luggage, ergonomic and crash protection products to outfit the KLR for years.

    Adventure Proven Protection
    To protect the engine, SW-MOTECH has developed a new robust 27mm diameter, frame-mounted crash bar and offers a skid plate that remains unchanged from the Gen 2 model. SW-MOTECH crash bars are formed, welded and powder-coated in their Brno, Czech Republic factory.

    The SW-MOTECH KOBRA Handguard system protects levers and hands from weather, brush and roost. Cold weather extensions to the handguards as well as LED blinker inserts can also be added to the KOBRAs.

    Precision Ergonomics
    KLR riders can now choose between two different footpeg options, the ION footrest or the EVO model. The top-of-the-line EVO peg has removable rubber inserts and is adjustable vertically, front to back and even allows for the rotation of the angle to allow for 36 different positions to dial in your sitting or standing ergonomics.

    A convenient and sturdy center stand is also offered that features a frustration-free installation thanks to the easy rotating spring tensioner.
