The KLX®300 is a highly-versatile lightweight dual-sport motorcycle that keeps going when the road ends. Delivering quick-revving power and versatile performance, this highly-capable bike is ready to take the adventure to paved streets, backroads, trails, and beyond. Wherever you ride, the fun is endless on the KLX300.
RIDE IN STYLE: The KLX®300 dual-sport motorcycle features KX™ motocross-inspired styling for a fresh, sporty look. All-new bodywork creates a sharp design that flows from the compact new headlamp to the more condensed tail, hinting at the versatile performance that riders can expect both on- and off-road. The new compact LED headlight in a slim, sharp new front cowl offers remarkable brightness and style. The new two-tone seat contributes to a dynamic, sporty look similar to Kawasaki’s KX motocross machines. From the cockpit, all-digital instrumentation is on display, including a digital speedometer, bar-type tachometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, and a range of warning/indicator lamps. Vehicle security is improved with a new ignition lock featuring five tumblers to increase theft resistance.
RIDE IN COMFORT: The KLX®300 dual-sport’s rider-friendly ergonomics closely align with the KLX®300R off-road motorcycle, offering an upright and relaxed riding position. Footpegs are positioned closer to the bike’s centerline for optimal riding comfort during on- and off-road excursions. Complementing adventure capabilities is a thick-padded seat that provides comfort on longer rides, while the 35.2-inch seat height allows riders to comfortably reach the ground at stops for added confidence. The new shroud design allows smoother transitions when shifting position enabling riders to feel more at one with their machine when cornering.
EXPERIENCE ON- AND OFF-ROAD THRILLS: The KLX®300 highly-versatile motorcycle exhibits agile maneuverability whether on- or off-road thanks to a slim, lightweight perimeter frame. The caster angle (26.7°) and short wheelbase contribute to quick handling, while the high rigidity of the frame ensures straight-line stability. Long-travel suspension is trail-tuned and offers 10.0 inches of travel up front and 9.1 inches in the rear. The 43mm inverted cartridge-style front fork has adjustable compression damping to optimize fork performance for conditions and personal preference. The Uni-Trak® rear suspension offers bump absorption, compression and rebound damping adjustability, and fully adjustable preload, allowing riders to tailor shock settings to personal preference. Substantial braking power comes from a powerful 250mm petal disc and twin-piston caliper up front and a 240mm petal disc and single-piston caliper in the rear. Strong dual-sport performance is further enabled with a 21-inch front wheel and 18-inch rear wheel. Wheel rigidity contributes to light, smooth handling and offers great durability for off-road riding.
Power and Performance

This DOHC four-stroke engine boasts a strong low- and mid-range, with exhilarating top-end pulling power. Power delivery is smooth and throttle response is crisp throughout the rpm range making this the ideal machine for a variety of riding situations. For added comfort especially in heavy traffic, the innovative radiator fan directs hot air down and away from the rider, improving rider comfort. Electric start offers easy starting; fuel injection helps with reliable starting in a wide range of conditions and contributes to improved fuel economy.
