With a history spanning from 1984 until 2005, the Kawasaki KLR250 became quite a legendary bike. Many bikers got their start riding the KLR250, and it's low price point made it attractive to anyone who was just starting out. Even the earliest models got 65 miles to the gallon, which meant that even a biker in 1984 could have gone around 150 miles before they needed to fuel up. This made it the ideal motorcycle for riding over long rural highways. A top speed of 86 mph and a quarter-mile acceleration clocking in at over 20 seconds might not seem all that great today, but so many critics forget that the Kawasaki KLR250 was able to do all of this with a 249 cc engine. Countless KLR250 bikes are still on the road today. In 2006 the KLR 250 was replaced by the Kawasaki KLX250S.
