   Since Kawasaki already introduced the 2014 KLR650 in the summer, the New Edition is not exactly a full model year machine. We ran a comparison between the two bikes and all the generic specs are identical, down to dimensions, weight and so on.

    However, it looks like the New Edition comes with revised suspensions and a different seat. They have discussed with Kawasaki at the NYC IMS and they say that the major differences are in the suspension area.

    The 2014 Kawasaki KLR650 New Edition brings 40% firmer fork springs and 27% firmer rebound damping, while the Uni-Trak reacr shock has a 63% higher spring rate and its rebound damping is 83% firmer. This means the 2014 Kawasaki KLR650 New Edition will perform very nicely even when fully loaded.

The seat was also redesigned, and comes with good-looking panels in the rear, and a more tapered profile in the front, for a shorter reach to the ground. The livery also changes a bit, as the bike is offered in Candy Lime Green and Ebony, Metallic Flat Raw Graystone and Ebony or Pearl Stardust White and Ebony.
