2003 Kawasaki KLX300R Off-Road Model
For those seeking four-stroke power in a lightweight and nimble chassis, the Kawasaki KLX300R provides the perfect package. It combines tractable power with two-stroke MX maneuverability. Ideal for off-road competitors and recreational riders alike, this is the motorcycle favored by off-road legend Larry Roeseler, and that in itself says a lot about the KLX300R.

Designed to be ultra-compact, the liquid-cooled 292cc engine features dual overhead cams activating four valves atop an Electrofusion-coated aluminum cylinder, which is wear resistant. The engine is wrapped in a high-tensile steel perimeter frame based on the design of Kawasaki’s championship-winning KX motocross bikes. A 26.5-degree steering angle and short wheelbase contribute to quick handling characteristics.

The KLX300R comes fully loaded with equipment to handle the rigors of trail riding, and is covered by a six-month limited warranty. Standard items include headlight and taillight, odometer, sidestand, hand guards to fend off brush, snail-type chain adjusters for quick rear-wheel removal and adjustment for the O-ring chain, a U.S. Forestry Service-approved spark arrestor, and a large fuel tank with reserve petcock. Suggested Retail: $4,699.
