Launched in December, 2015.
Versys 650 is the scaled down version of Kawasaki's adventure tourer class motorcycle Versys 1000. All the design features of 650 are similar to their elder sibling, 1000. Like other adventure bikes, this too is built for all roads. The design of Versys 650 is totally functional. Styling of the bike focuses on aerodynamics, air flow management and the upright rider seat for off-roading and long distance commuting. But the speciality of this tourer is, it can be day to day commuter and a cross country expedition vehicle as well.
The twin headlamps mounted on the fairing and tall adjustable wind shield steals away all the first look of Versys. On coming to the rear section, the double pipe from the sub frame is nearly exposed to give a rugged feel to the motorcycle. The long travel suspension is made of adjustable 41mm Showa forks at the front and KYB monoshock for rear section. An 840mm of seat height seems a bit awkward, but it gives a firm control over the motorcycle and high level of comfort.
Versys is powered by a 649cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine, which is mounted on an updated chassis borrowed from Ninja 650. The engine delivers 68 bhp power and 64 Nm torque, and is mated with a six speed transmission box.
The Versys faces competition from Triumph Tiger XR and Benelli TNT 600GT.
