2002 Kawasaki KLR650 from United States of America
Big bang for the buck
Nothing that I didn't create myself, and was no fault of the motorcycle. I removed the rear fender and inadvertently grounded a tail light wire, and it caused the lighting fuses to burn out.
Not fast, not too slow, not too powerful, but yet not lacking either. In other words, you won't get many speeding tickets unless you're trying hard, and getting the front wheel off the ground doesn't usually happen by accident.
The bike is ultra-reliable, very inexpensive to operate... just hop on, take off and keep smiling as it whizzes you around town or on a long road trip.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

And that's exactly what I like about it. It's got long legs 57 mpg and a smooth ride, and will go anywhere I want to go, and even some places I shouldn't. It's piggish in mud, but a great great street machine for under 75.
