Well, this is the third model in the KLR offerings ( the XS twin) and is largely a twin headlight version of the original XS. The 'non beak' version (we're calling it the 'Phoenix twin', because it was the first item to emerge from us after our workshop fire in Oct !! ), will be in production from next week and this one a couple of weeks later.

As indicated before, all three share the same screens and Carbon dash options and will come in all the KLR OEM colours plus white.

Price on the daul XS? I'm shopping for a KLR right now and will be adding the dual XS into my purchase price

The KLR is no longer an ugly duckling

I think KLRs are ugly, all the add on fairings are ugly, and I know I'm ugly, so what the hell? If it works I'll eventually have to have it.

One recommendation? make the fender seperately replaceable from the fairing. If I broke a fender (and I will), and had to replace the whole shebang I would'nt do it. I would just put the stocker back on.

Someone posted at the front of this thread a pic of the Tengai, and asked when replica Tengai plastic would be offered. Now THAT I would buy in an instant! The Tengai is by far the only good looking KLR. In fact, I think the Tengai looks better than a KLR or BMW. I never liked the color schemes, but the plastic looks cool. And it looks functional, although I've never ridden one. Are there any Tengai owners around who can attest to the functionality?

+1 on the Tengai. Been looking for aftermarket plastics that look like that...

Thanks ! The twin XS is $470 and the Phoenix twin (beakless) is $420

Both come complete and ready to go in all the OEM colours + white, with the lights fitted and a plug and play wiring loom that also has two extra fused terminals in the fairing for other 'accessories'.

Sweeeeet

That's some fine work there, guys! I've been hoping for something like this, and more so for something like this that falls into a KLR inspired budget--so I'll be waiting to hear about pricing. So....turn signals? Where they be? The inner fender I see--necessary? Included?
Congratulations on coming through with a cool product that people are excited about!

We did consider splitting the molds to enable replaceability, but the structure changes and we felt it might get too heavy. As it stands, all three fairings weigh less than the OEM parts they replace.So,we then decided to produce the Phoenix (beakless one), which retains your OEM fender. Although it's largely a styling choice, I guess we felt that solved the split part issue and it's cheaper.

Incidently, although we have never had to supply one yet, the cost of a replacement fairing without lights , screen and hardware would be less than half the cost of a new one.

Thanks Scott ! You're right, the indicators arn't on either one in the pictures. They attach at the 'waist', in virtually the same place as the OEM fairing. Holes are predrilled to take either the OEM indicators or aftermarket.

Inner fender is included on the twin XS and obviously not necessary on the Phoenix (beakless one)

ummm... Where do i get in line for the Phoenix twin? That is sweet and I've got a set of USD style forks for my KLR waiting for me to figgure out how to nicely mount Inserments and lighting (was planning to go the buell ulysses route)

Any word yet on weather the accessory fuse panel will be included? If so how many spare slots? Also does it mount up to the stock brackets on the stear tube?

I can't wait! Keep up the good work!!

Now that the parts are in production, we'll move this over to Vendors.


Great work, Ian!!
