Guess "new" KLE500 isn't that different from previous KLE models. The basic mechanics have stayed the same ever since KLE was first introduced in '90. '05 KLE has re-designed fairing and screen + some small new details.
Great bike but that 500cc twin feels a bit underpowered (48hp) compared to 600/650 TransAlp and 650 V-Strom; it's more like something between single cylinder thumpers and twins. Fine for one-up touring but for two-up with full luggage it would need a bigger / more powerful engine.
