2008 Kawasaki KLR650
Kawi admittedly is pushing the bike in a more touring-friendly direction, but there is now so much road-going capability mixed with just enough off-road capacity that this bike is really more of a mini adventure-touring machine.
The 2008 Kawasaki KLR650 is a funky machine. Whether or not it's for you depends on how you like to boogie.
