anyone on here have dual purpose motocycles? i was wandering on foot today looking for zombie hives and meandered into a bike shop. Hmm, the Husqvarna 610 looks like fun. Pros-Cons? or suggestions of others? maybe some pics?
08 KLR 650, they finally freshened up the ole gal.
I've been considering the Suzuki DR400 because of it's lighter weight. anyone know it's manners and speed on the hwy?
The kawa KLR is one of the, if not THE, best dual purpose bike. It will keep running forever. Sure the Husqvarna have a lto of power, but it wont last as long as the Kawa or Honda. Even the US marine use the KLR when they buy bikes now
Plated yes...however, those tires are not street legal...at least not in Colorado...Dual-sporting is seriously popular. I just picked up my second bike today to go along with my road bike ('95 Honda ST1100). The bike I just got is a '97 Honda XR400R, which has been plated to be street-legal.
One thing about KTM's though is they come STOCK with upgraded parts, on a different brand bike you'd have to buy ...
No argument on the nice equipment that comes stock with the KTM's - That's why they cost so much more.
Also a 230 is way to small for a street bike!! You'd have to gut that pig to make it light enough to have fun with it since it would be under powered
