1991 Kawsaki KLE500

The first model was introduced in 1991 as a dual purpose motorcycle, suitable both for light off roading, as well as cruising around the road. It has a sump guard which protects the oil pan during off-road use. Aerodynamic protection relies on a small windshield and depending on the height of the rider, the head and upper torso are exposed to the wind. The situation can be improved considerably with the use of windshield accessories, available as an accessory for the original Kawasaki model but also other brands for the latest series, thanks to the interchangeability of parts with the widespread Z1000. The seat is wide enough to accommodate driver and passenger. The bike is equipped with a large rear rack.


To suit the Euro 2 standard emission, Kawasaki improved the air pollution system. It also received facelift with a windshield similar to the Z1000
