GET OUT AND PLAY
The KLX®300 motorcycle extends the playing field with high-grade dual-sport performance. The flagship KLX® features strong power and versatile performance for taking on paved streets, back roads, wooded trails and beyond. Experience thrills on a variety of terrain with the KLX®300—the possibilities are plentiful on this highly capable ultimate lightweight dual-sport.
- RIDE IN STYLE: A sharp front cowl and headlight design gives off an aggressive first impression and leads into the KX™-inspired bodywork that’s sure to turn heads. 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.
- 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. Foot pegs 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.
- EXPERIENCE ON- AND OFF-ROAD THRILLS: The KLX®300 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 and rebound damping adjustability, and fully adjustable preload, allowing riders to tailor shock settings to personal preference. Substantial braking power comes thanks to a 250mm petal disc and twin-piston caliper up front and a 240mm petal rear disc and single-piston caliper. 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
- GET THE POWER TO PLAY: At the heart of the KLX®300 ultimate lightweight dual-sport, is an enduro-inspired 292cc engine, fuel-injected and liquid-cooled for consistent performance even when the action heats up. 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. Electric start offers easy starting; fuel injection helps with reliable starting in a wide range of conditions and contributes to improved fuel economy.
