Letter Rip! Letter of the Week - Dirt Rider Magazine

Kracy Little Racer?
Just wondering: a friend of mine owns a KLR650 and doesn't know what the KLR stands for, but suspects that it is " Kawasaki Long Range". Can you tell me, for certain, what it stands for?
DebbieThe letters typically don't stand for anything in particular, they are just model designations, and so your choice of words is as good as any I've heard. Knowing what kind of bike the KLR is, I'd say it stands for big heavy inexpensive bike that is great for commuting or long range rides but be careful if you ride it off-road seriously because it is a beast. It's no DR-Z400, that's for sure. -Jimmy
