Kawasaki Versys 650


The Kawasaki Versys 650 is a middleweight sport touring motorcycle from the Japanese two wheeler manufacturer. The name Versys is derived from the words ‘versatile’ and ‘system’ and the Versys 650 seems to be the perfect touring tool for Indian bikers. Globally, the Kawasaki Versys 650 has been around since 2007, with facelifts and upgrades carried out in 2010 and then in 2015. Kawasaki India already sells the larger displacing Versys 1000 in India since January 2015. The Kawasaki Versys 650 is one of the most awaited sports tourers in India, owing to its do-it-all reputation and an engine which has already seen lots of service on Indian roads in the Kawasaki Ninja 650 and the Kawasaki ER-6n. In fact, the Versys 650 is based on the same platform as the Ninja 650 and the ER-6n, sharing the same engine, electronics, wheels, brakes and main frame. The 650cc liquid-cooled, double overhead cam, parallel twin, four-stroke engine however, is remapped and retuned for more bottom-end and mid-range torque. The engine makes over 68bhp of maximum power at 8,500rpm and 64Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. Transmission is a six-speed ‘box. Together with the long travel suspension and upright riding position, the Versys 650 is a versatile machine offering riders an exciting ride experience as well as a capable tourer. Additionally, the Kawasaki Versys 650 also comes equipped with a tool-less, height adjustable windshield, reach-adjustable handlebars and high ground clearance. Internationally, the Versys 650 is available in two variants – a standard 650 ABS version and a Versys 650 LT version with standard handguards and a pair of 28-litre colour matched saddlebags with a common key for ignition as well. In India though, we aren’t sure whether Kawasaki will launch both variants or just the standard ABS model.
