Best dual sport bike Ive ridden. Great in rush hour traffic & on tight wooded trails. I have 19000 miles on it in just 2 years and it is running stronger than the day I got it. Since in reality the bike is a green DRZ. Go Kawasuki go...!!!

I bought this bike 6 months ago. It was my first bike in 13 years. My previous was a KLR 250. The KLX 400 was a seriously needed upgrade in the Kawasaki Dual Sport line up. It is basicly the off road woods bike with blinkers, mirrors and milder tread on the tires. Only took me a week or two to get comfortable with it. It now grabs air effortlessly. It has the power to pull the front wheel at speed in the lower three gears. Important for crossing ruts that show up in the trail. If you want a serious dirt bike that you can ride on the street...get the KLX. However if you are looking for a capable touring bike...consider the KLR 650. The KLX only gets about 40 MPG with a 2.5 gallon tank. A real nusciance for a cross coutry jaunt. But my KLX serves me well in my 30 mile one way commute to work. It cruises capably at 75 in a head wind on the short stretch of interstate that I negotiate. I have had it at 80...but I fear to press it further as it is noticebly into the rpms at that point. However it does have the power to pull it. 291 dry weight and 40 HP = high fun factor. You won't be disapointed. By the way...if you are comparing this to the Suzuki DRZ400s...don't bother. They are the same exact identical bikes. The only difference is the color.

I recently bought the KLX 400. It performs well on the street, but is outstanding offroad. I took it to the track to see what it could do, and boy was I impressed. It handled great, it took a few laps to get used to the stock tires, but after that it was all air. Great exceleration going up steep hills, superb suspension, cought much air on jumps, overall a motocross bike with blinkers. Good job Kawasaki!!

Babying the bike haven't really pushed it yet due to breakend. Will due 65MPH with a strong head wind going against you at 3/8 throttle in 5 gear. I suspect it will push 100mph, but about 75 to 80mph the bike becomes more stressed feeling the RPM's Stability is much better than expected, for being dirt bike oriented.

I know a decade or so ago, I would see bikes like this in Japan, wondering when they would show up in the U.S. My history being motocross, after years of hauling bikes to the track. Old age became less tolerent of those 100 or longer mile trips. This is no typical dual sport foo foo bike, it has some good componentry on it. Forks ,shock, brakes, not your typical cheap foo foo bike material. Is it as fast as a CR500(nope), I'd rate the power similar to a smooth 250 motocrosser that you can open the garage door head to a trail or putt around on the street for a little enjoyment. Considered buying the klr650, but in comparison techology wise KLR is too dated. I suppose If I had to take a long trip KLR would be better. Bottom line, if in the market for a dual sport this ones a very good choice.
