Kawsaki Versys 650

The Kawsaki Versys 650; a lot has been said about it ever since its launch in December last year. While it garnered some criticism at that time mainly for its pricing, the ones who rode it came back with a fresh perspective. Since then it has been appreciated for its upright seating, plush ride and most importantly its touring capabilities.



The Versys 650 is powered by the same 649cc parallel twin unit from the Ninja 650 and the ER-6n. In this state of tune it makes peak power of 69PS and maximum torque of 64Nm. Although there is a drop in power of about 3PS from the Ninja 650 the difference is barely noticeable and it doesn’t feel underpowered either. Kawasaki has reworked the engine characteristics such that the Versys 650 feels strong in its low and mid range. In short, the engine is Liquid-cooled DOHC parallel twin, four valves per cylinder.
