Hardly. The R3 is the only thing that Yamaha offers to the beginner market in low cc bikes, that and some shitbag 250cc cruiser. Kawasaki offers a wide range of 125-1000cc standards with and without fairings, 600-1400cc sportsbikes, the vulcan lineup which is arguably the best japanese cruiser lineup currently in production, the versys (which offers 300 and 650cc low-midrange variants, something Yamaha doesn't offer and Honda can't compete in adventure bikes), and the KLX which closely competes with every other jap dual sport/dirtbike anyway.

The only thing Kawasaki really loses on right now is Yamaha beating it in the dual sport/dirtbike segments, Suzuki offering more decent options in those segments, and Honda beating it in the large cruisers/touring bikes with the Gold Wing.

R3 and FZ07
Mentioned the R3, FZ07 competes with the Ninja 400, 650, Z650, and I guess the Versys 650 if you want to count it. Kawasaki offers much more in that powerband, Yamaha offers the kick start 400 and the R3/FZ07.
Bolt, STAR stuff, Vmax
Vmax is based, but I wasn't really thinking of it as a typical cruiser, more like a musclebike. It does great, but it's an end game cruiser. The Bolt/Star stuff doesn't even come close to the Vulcan lineup, in fact everything in the Vulcan lineup beats out the equivalent Star bike in many ways.
SFR900 or whatever it is
What about it?
XT and tenere
The tenere isn't a mid-ranged adventure bike, it's actually very large. Kawasaki appeals to the smaller bike market while Yamaha appeals to the larger displacement market. The tenere is also 1200cc and I see nothing that places it over the Versys/Concours.
Honda has the best ADV with africa twin and the CB500X
Agreed on Africa Twin, it's very appealing, but reviews seem to favor it to the offroad part of it, it doesn't seem to handle touring as well as adventuring. That said, it's based. The CB500X is Taiwanese built garbage that compares to the CB500F. The NC is also very boring and uninspiring, and I think it comes with an automatic transmission too.
KLX is no XL or WR
I said that.

Some things to keep in mind:
get it in 2nd, if not third
If it's a single, I think you want to be at tdc
Make use off all the slack in your drivetrain by letting the clutch out and walking it backwards a bit before trying
Try to reach 15kmh / 9mph
You want to dump the clutch, don't touch the starter button, do not slam it in gear
For some reason reddit fags and motovloggers get it always wrong
Also remember to pull the clutch back in if you're running beside it

Speaking of turbos...

How come every econobox is being released with a stock turbo option these days and sportbikes aren't?

massdebater

The GS500 is objectively the best beginner bike.
mileage
It's a mid-sized 4stroke twin cylinder bike, so it drinks less than 6 liters per 100 km.
handling
It handles nothing like a supersport, spoiling you for when you get something else. But it can also corner much better than something like a cruiser, and actually uses its entire rear tire unlike a Ninja 250.
brakes
They are complete shit and their only redeeming feature is that they're disc brakes. This is good because the longer braking distance forces new riders to plan ahead and start braking early. No ABS means they learn to brake properly I'd they don't want to get shrekt.
power
It sits right at the power limit for A2 bikes which is great for euros. It's torquey enough to be faster off the line than most cars you'll encounter in the city. But it also feels relatively gutless so a) it's forgiving of mistakes and b) you can ride it at the limit without putting yourself into too much danger. It reaches up to 180 km/h which is fast enough for highway riding.
carbs
It being carbed means that if you run into problems, you can learn to fix them yourself instead of heading to the mechanic every time.
seating position
Upright, slightly forward means it's a neutral riding position so you can figure out what you want afterwards. The seat is relatively uncomfortable making literally every other bike after it will feel like heaven on your ass.
price and availability
Parts and the bikes themselves are cheap and plentiful. If you crash and fuck up one of your fairings it's 40 euros to replace it with original parts. Engine needs little maintenance. Beginner riders are typically not financially independent, so this is a big plus for them.
suspension
It's a budget suspension factoring into the overall low cost of getting a GS 500. If you want better suspension it's easy to swap. Therefore it gives beginners an opportunity to learn working on suspension while keeping the cost manageable.

EPA emissions and CAFE standards bullshit. the emissions test includes a fuckload of engine idle time, and not very much highway time.

So, if your 1L car engine idles for 20 minutes, it used less gas than a 7.3L V8. However a 1L POS wouldn't be able to move out of its own way, so you include a power adder to get it back up to where yesteryear's I4 was but fewer emissions, and more MPG.

Yep, just get the right oil and filter, and get motorcycle oil, not regular engine oil. The fiction modifiers can mess up your shifting. It's stupid easy on a bike, more so than a car since you don't have to jack anything up or climb under it. YouTube vids will make it take 10 minutes tops your first time.

it's super easy to do, most common bikes have a youtube video somewhere, just make sure you use a torque wrench or put the bolt back on sort of around whatever the spec says in the manual. and use a new crush washer.

Nah tighten it by hand until it's tight enough to where you can't really turn by hand unless you forced it anymore. Torque wrenches are a meme, I can't even fit anything but a box wrench on my drain bolt.

I was looking at maybe getting an R3 from a dealer that advertises it at $3k on Cycletrader. Of course there's always this bullshit:
Price, if shown, does not include, government fees, taxes, dealer freight/preparation, dealer document preparation charges or any finance charges (if applicable).
So I was wondering how much would the total cost actually be? This dealer(Del Amo Motorsports) seems to be the cheapest in the area but I'm a bit skeptical. Is this legit, or will they rip me off in some other way?

They're actually extremely reliable bikes.

Gigastrength
Gigastrength

for kymco 125s I actually read that you can still optimize for acceleration or top speed by doing a ±1 sprocket change. the only aftermarket enhancement I can think of other than a sprocket is a more open exhaust. I'll also do what previous user said and try to find out what engine a 2016 K-pipe copies. There's extremely sparse aftermarket info for these bikes.

Larger front sprocket, straight pipes, pod filter, and tune the carbs if you can or rejet it.
The most you'll get out of all that is "better" acceleration and maybe a little better top-end speed.

There really is no replacement for displacement in this case.

I'll look into these, thanks. I think only one company makes a big bore kit, but it's cheap. it recommends switching carbs, but I don't think an aftermarket carb exists for this bike specifically. I could try rejetting it though. the goal wasn't to get 'more' power, just maximize its performance.

Yeah from the angle that the -c is unique compared to the other gen 1 KLRs - I don't really want to change it. I just need an option I can put on for super long rides. These 2-3h rides have not needed anything, but if I want to plot out some 5-6h rides I think I'd like some wind protection.
