KLR Cousin – 1990 Kawasaki Tengai

In Dual-Sport, Japan, Less than 5k by Abhi3 Comments

This Kawasaki Tengai was created as a sister bike to the venerable KLR 650. Magazine tests of the time cited the Tengai as a bit better off-road, and most thought it was better looking due to the extra plastic.

Differences between these bikes include a dual piston front caliper on the Tengai versus a single on the KLR, shorter but thicker forks, and a much nicer instrument panel that was attached to the frame and not the triple tree. In addition, the rear subframes are slightly different and the rear footpegs have a different mounting bracket setup. Lucky for you, this bike comes with a KLR subframe (mounts at the same point) if you want to mount normal KLR luggage racks. It also has the ‘doohickey’ mod, a recent service, and all the factory Tengai bits. Find this Tengai for sale with 23,xxx miles here on ADVRider for $2,200 in Springfield, Missouri.
