Anyone read the article in July dirt bike mag? 650 Comparison of KLR, DR, and the XR650 L. It seems they talked up the L the most, but there is not really an overall winner. The L was declared the most "dirt oriented" of the three, being the least heavy at 325 lbs without fuel. Also, they liked the L's suspension for serious dirt riding. However, they said it handles "weird" in the dirt, but doesn't do anything nasty, comparing it to the way bikes used to be and calling it a time machine. They stated the DR's suspension keeps it from being used for serious dirt riding, and that basically the bike's target is your "soft-core" rider. However, they did state the DR stock had the most first gear power of the three. As for the KLR, "it's clearly no dirt bike at all, it's just a dirt-road bike". In the end of the article, the L was the bike that they declared as most tempting to buy, do a few mods (re-gear, knobbies) and have a great dual sport bike, but "you just have to pretend it's 1993". Overall, pretty cool 8 page article with nice pics, etc, lots more. On the very next page after the article, the KTM 690 Enduro is in it's own bike category as the absolute winner (MSRP $10,498).
