HDT's Diesel KLR...release for 2010?? Hmmmm

Fall 2010...okay

Many have already become aware of the previous incarnations of the much anticipated diesel motorbike on a KLR650 platform, developed for the US Marine Corp and supposedly other NATO forces, by HDT. A consumer production version has -and is still- long awaited.

This is the military version of what looks to be built on the modern KLR chassis

And the price Well, I guess one would look at it not as a $17,000 KLR, but as a very capable and reliable diesel adventure bike for 17Gs.

...what's up with this one??
