What Is It?
The Kawasaki Versys 650 is a mid-range adventure bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 649 cc parallel twin engine, producing 68.4 bhp at 8,500 rpm and maximum torque at 7,000 rpm.

Compared to the 2010-2014 model you get a new dash, smarter front end 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 60 mm by hand from the front and the panniers fit into integrated mounts so the bike looks clean when they are off.
The 6-spoke 17" wheels take a Dunlop Sportmax 120/70 tyre at the front and 160/60 at the rear.
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 fog lights.
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.
Accessories include handguards, heated grips, gear position indicator, LED fog lights, tall smoked screen, 12V socket next to the dash, frame sliders, 56 litre panniers and 47 litre top box.
