I did consider KLR for a little while. Capable or not is purely base on your personal use. KLR is after all a dual sport and CB is road biased. Regardless of their categories and intend purposes. If CB cost just as much as KLR as most of us speculate, then it is definitely a good deal. For the same amount of money you get a fuel injected honda engine, new electronics, and designs. I'm not saying KLR is not a good deal or a good bike. But in comparison, I wouldn't want to buy a bike that's come with 20 years old technologies and issues when I can buy a new hm, well, honda!
