The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 300 . Can the motorcycle world have too many lightweight dual sport options? Probably not. Kawasaki . The KLX 300 SM is the supermoto version , featuring 17-inch wheels, shorter-travel suspension, a larger 300mm front disc brake (up from 250mm on the dual-sport), a

The 2021 KLX 300 SM was developed alongside the KLX 300 dual-sport and features similar DNA, including many shared engine and chassis components. Where the models differ is overall styling and intended use. While the KLX 300 dual-sport is equal parts on-road and dirt

Alongside the announcement of a new KLX300 dual sport, Kawasaki also revealed it would add a supermoto to its lineup in 2021 with the KLX300SM, priced at $5,999. It’s a somewhat surprising and welcome addition, providing riders with a more approachable supermoto entry point than, say, the Suzuki DR-Z400SM ($7,499) or KTM 450 SMR ($11,299).

It’s doubly nice for riders to have an out-of-the-box option in this price and displacement range. Of course, modifying off-road bikes for supermoto duty has long been a pastime of the supermoto faithful, but the time and expense of such an undertaking no doubt dissuaded many from taking on the challenge. I can see the 300SM motivating those riders to finally go for it.

It shares many elements with its dual sport sibling. It’s powered by the same fuel-injected 292cc single, for example, which is housed in the same high-tensile-steel perimeter frame. But there are some differences.

2021 Kawasaki KLX300 First Look Preview .
Kawasaki expands its dual sport line in 2021 with the KLX300.The new KLX300 will be powered by a 292cc single, featuring a lightweight piston, pin and connecting rod, electrofusion cylinder, and cam profiles derived from the 300R. Ignition timing and a gear-driven engine balancer are calibrated to reduce vibrations as much as possible, a boon to riders planning any longer trips on the new 300. The mill is mounted low in the high-tensile-steel, box-section perimeter frame, and gear ratios were chosen to hit the sweet spot between off-road capability and on-road performance.
