Why don't they make the KLX650R anymore

I really miss mine.
I had it for several years. One of my all time favorites for sure.
I could never understand the KLR owners....

Then it was stolen.... :(

After a short while I found it....and got it back :)

But soon afterwards, parts were getting stolen off it again.....plastics , CDI , seat , head light..... :(((( (Same guys that stole it the first time)

I re-built it....and continued enjoying the wheelie popping torque

Then, during a nice morning ride, the de-compression mechanism on the exhaust cam shaft broke and took the cylinder head with it.....

I rebuilt it....again.....and sold it...

What a mistake......now they don't make em' anymore.
