    After killing off the Kawasaki KLR560 C in 2019 Kawasaki have announced a new model coming late in 2021.

    One of the main reasons for discontinuing the old model was that as a carbureted bike it no longer met emissions regulations so the first obvious update is the new model gets fuel injection.
    There’s quite a few other updates also with a new slightly longer frame with integrated subframe, all new bodywork and a new LCD screen on the dash. Weight is up about 10kg and changes have been made to the footpeg and handlebar positions.

    In some markets an adventure model is also being released, the ‘Adventure variation gets factory saddle bags, fog lamps, frame sliders and power outlets.
