Off-road motorcycles are for riding in places where there are no paved roads. Off-road or dirt bikes are built to handle rugged trails and off-road conditions with the ease of a gazelle. The off-road motorcycle has long suspension travel, higher ground clearance, come with knobby tires for traction in gravel, sand, dirt, and mud.
They are constructed to be lightweight, a front and rear fender, a frame, a gas tank, a seat, knobby tires, low riding handlebars, and a small gas tank. Let’s look at some options for the Weekend Warrior to enjoy the excitement of the off-road experience.
Kawasaki KLR 650
Kawasaki known for its quality motorcycles and the Kawasaki KLR 650 meets that standard. The KLR650 comes with a 651-cc engine that is one of the best in the off-road motorcycling world, and it is liquid-cooled. Tips the scales at 432 pounds and has a range of 250 miles making this motorcycle one of the best for all-terrain travel.
The simplicity of the KL650 is its best feature, no fuel injection, no ABS, no riding aids, nothing to go wrong. While out trail busting on the Kawasaki KL650 ride in style wearing Motorcycle Mesh Jackets or Men Motorcycle Mesh Pants, looking good.
KL650 is street legal and handles the highway very well. The way this motorcycle accelerates through dry river beds, over dunes, and dirt trails is the reason why you choose it.
Honda Africa Twin
Africa’s engine specific format is what makes this off-road motorcycle adaptable to changing the terrain. The twin 998cc four-stroke liquid-cooled engine creates a shorter wheelbase, 62 inches, putting the front wheel closer to the engine.
Africa Twin has a curb weight 511 lbs with a subframe of high-tensile strength steel, six-speed transmission, a torque control system. You know the saying, keep it simple stupid, is the concept here, no frills just bare essentials, having less is good.
