Rally Raid in the UK are in the process of creating parts to make the CB500X more off-road capable. There will be a series of releases, the first scheduled for Q1 next year,Cheers Colin I guess I'm hoping for a one bike does all but may need to head the two bike option

Yet the crappy old carb ones seem to make much more power output than the EFI options.. Look at KSRs etc..Gene I bought the KLX 150, the L has 21 and 18" wheels so would be higher which I don't want.
I am pissed off that the 150 has a crappy old carburettor instead of the much more fuel efficient EFI, but then it would mean a smaller engine if I went for the 125
I thought no carbed bikes could meet Euro III ?? And only the bikes introduced before the rule change were grandfathered over..The 150 has got emissions on it Sefton, there are a couple of pipes going to the exhaust header that are not on the 140. I am guessing it also meets Euro III
Not sure if there has been new pricing introduced but last year in Surin at the "Surin Motor Show" the KLX 150 was sold for 65k all included (taxes, book, plate, registration etc)...is this s a new/different model?Hearing the KLX 150 "L" with the 18" rear & 21" front wheels is around 85,000 Bht, will try check today.
It is a myth that bikes with carburator cannot meet emission standards...carburator technology has come a long way even after the introduction of fuel injection - it is, admittedly, easier with fuel injection especially when it comes to maintenance.I thought no carbed bikes could meet Euro III ?? ...............
Hence why the KLR650 never made it here, and multiple others the same.
If you like the KLR650 Red Baron has a brand spanking new 2013 model they brought in and plated (he passed the emission standards on a single homologation) not too shabby, though at 518k a little on the pricy side.............. Euro III .......... the KLR650 never made it here........
Red Baron has been offering (though not quite sure if that's the appropriate word) these bikes for 428K for some time now. Still a big investment for a cheap bike (in the US anyway).
Bit big and heavy for me.. Less into the land barges than a few of the more tour minded guys.
The boss at Kawasaki Chiang Mai thinks the L should be here in about a month but reckons it wont sell very well as it will be too tall for most Thais.Hearing the KLX 150 "L" with the 18" rear & 21" front wheels is around 85,000 Bht, will try check today.
But isnt the the constant reason we get for bikes not being given plates ??It is a myth that bikes with carburator cannot meet emission standards...carburator technology has come a long way even after the introduction of fuel injection - it is, admittedly, easier with fuel injection especially when it comes to maintenance.
The KLR650 was reportedly derailed by political reasons, nothing to do with E3 as it does actually meet the emission standards (at least when it is new, after some milage, well...different issue).
http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-news-new-bikes/klr650-updated/24194.htmluntil the introduction of the 2008 model in USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa. It is not sold in Europe due to emission regulations.
Maybe someone needs to tell Kawasaki..The KLR was dropped from the European market a few years ago when it stopped hitting EU emissions targets, but remains popular in America.
I find that really strange.. Kawasaki for example sold the KLX140 throughout asia.. But didnt here (road legal) because it was carbed.. They then introduced a 125 FI model specifically to address that shortcoming, while still selling the 140 model in other markets (Indo, PI).. So they sold the 140 off road, here in Thailand, but didnt get it road homogenization, as they did in many other asean markets, because of 'politics' ?? That makes no sense. Thats turning down free money when they already sold it here for off road.
Over and over again the reasons given for not getting models here, that are sold elsewhere has been that they cant get a carbed bike through euro 3... thats been said about the KLR650, the KLX450, etc etc etc.. Its all been lies ??
