Kawasaki says no 2019 KLR650 for Canada


Earlier this week, we told you about the speculation surrounding Kawasaki’s popular KLR650 dual sport/adventure bike, and said while there’s no confirmation of cancellation, it looks as if the model is done.

Now, we have Kawasaki Canada’s official statement, from Brad Goodbody: “I can confirm that model year 2018 will be the final year for the iconic KLR650. There will not be a 2019 KLR650 in the line up for Canadian Kawasaki Motors, however there will be 2018 models available in limited quantities.”

So, you can still buy a brand-new KLR650, but you might not be able to do so for much longer.

The next question is, will Team Green be replacing the big thumper, and if so, with what? Is a Versys-X 400 just around the corner?
