Kawasaki Versys 650


  • Good looking all-rounder
  • Screen adjustment from the front

What Is It?

It's powered by a liquid cooled 649cc parallel twin engine, producing 68.4bhp at 8,500rpm and maximum torque at 7,000rpm.

Features include:

  • Tubular Steel frame with Aluminium swingarm
  • Dual 300mm wavy discs up front with Nissin 2 piston calipers
  • 250mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • ABS system
  • Adjustable 41mm upside down fork with 150mm travel
  • Rear shock with remote pre-load adjustment and 145mm travel
  • 6 speed gearbox

Compared to the 2010-2014 model you get a new dash, smarter front from the Versys 1000, new luggage system, larger adjustable screen, larger fuel tank, slightly more power and slightly less vibration.

To keep the weight centralised and low Kawasaki have kept the exhaust short and under the engine, while the screen can be adjusted over 60mm by hand from the front and the panniers fit into integrated mounts so the bike looks clean when they are off.

The Tourer edition is £7,750 which gets you the pannier system and handguards. For £8,500 you can have the Grand Tourer edition which also includes the top box, gear position indicator, 12V socket and LED foglights.

If you fancy a bit of colour however there's a special edition of all three in a tasty green/black colour scheme, stretching right across the bike, luggage and rear shock. It's £7,250 for the base model, £7,900 for the Tourer and £8,650 for the Grand Tourer.

There's also a 46.9bhp restrictor kit available to make it A2 compliant, while the 6-spoke 17" wheels take a Dunlop Sportmax 120/70 tyre at the front and 160/60 at the rear.

Accessories include handguards, heated grips, gear position indicator, LED foglights, tall smoked screen, 12V socket next to the dash, frame sliders, 56 litre panniers and 47 litre top box.
