Scaling at 115 kilograms in dry weight, this single passenger motorcycle does justice to both off-road and city driving. Fuel capacity stands at 6.5-liters.
What are the standout features of the KR?
Ground clearance is slightly higher than most types of motorbikes at 170 mm, thanks to its taller 17-inch spoke type wheels and a 14-inch rear trail-type wheel. The KR’s fully exposed engine allows it to have better air-inflow which results in faster cooling of its engine. Its front fender has been moved just below the front mask to allow the driver to easily steer the unit.
Its chrome plated muffler has also been raised at a level above the rear wheel and at a 30 degree angle for dirt not to reach it. Its rear finish comes with rear combination lamps integrated into its mud skirt. Plastic body coverings also outline this motorcycle in a two-toned color.
