One thing to remember is that the KLR didn't meet modern Euro emissions standards, thus hasn't been sold in most of Europe for years. The C model with its funky non-fairing and different suspension was the model most sold in Europe during the years that it was available. This doesn't affect availability elsewhere, it just depends where you're going. Note that there are Kawasaki dealers on the Internet who are happy to air-mail you any part you need anywhere that there's reliable mail service -- which is the case with Europe, at the very least.
So yes, I'd not hesitate to say that the KLR is a fairly rare bike in Europe. And the Africa Twin is a very rare bike in the United States. And your point is?
