If only they can keep them affordable.
I suppose if anyone can, it will be Kawasaki - no MotoGP team to drain funds.

Their WSBK team probably drain as much as any MotoGP could.

Given the T7 is about $10k these prices looks promising. Hopefully it’s priced right locally.

This info found on Advrider.....................
First off, the engine is similar to the older model, but with one major upgrade: From what we’ve heard, the infamous “doohickey” has been updated. This was the non-technical term for the Balancer Chain Adjuster Lever, part of the chain balancer assembly that was notorious for breaking, even after fairly low mileage. Savvy riders always replaced Kawasaki’s original welded-together design with an updated part from Eagle Mike or other aftermarket manufacturer (read more about the “doohickey” here). It was the greatest weakness of the original 1987-2007 KLR design, and riders even complained about breakdowns on the 2008-2018 updated model. Now, it’s supposedly fixed.

Current: NC750X

Worth a look in, price should be good. The new clocks are lcd so not stupid fancy and expensive, better shroud and tail changes. I see that the adventure comes standard with panniers in the usa. Pity the colour range is limited, I would have enjoyed a 1978 colour scheme or even a kawasaki green and tap into some heritage. Give it a little more excitement.
