I'm going to keep mine in a faraday cage, I think it has post apocalyptic style.

So if I keep my KLR another 50 years it will become a classic and will be worth something?

Nope, just because it's old doesn't make it valuable....they've built, what seems like, millions of KLR's in the 31 years of production....

"Created shortly after the discovery of lead, and mostly made from the stuff, The KLR 650 has been a somewhat reliable off-road partner for generations of thrifty, vinyl-pocket-protector wearing goofballs. Easily crashed yet hard to pick up, the KLR has spawned a huge aftermarket of widgets and freeze-dried gooseberries to remedy the built-in defects that Kawasaki never had time to address during the bike’s short, 437-year production run. Oval pistoned long before Honda claimed to invent it, the KLR suffered from excessive oil use, bad doohickeys, wonky thing-a-ma-bobs, and who’s on first anyway?"

Maybe a fuel-injected KLX450 or KLX650 to replace it?  That would be awesome.
Agreed.

I don't think so. I think this is Kawasaki trying to have a super cheap bike to compete with all the china dual sports flooding in.
