Versys 650 long term ride review

By Adrian Chiew for Kawasaki Versys 650

Bought this awesomeness early 2017. The versys 650 is powered by a parallel twin engine yet it is armed with upside-down forks and an impressive swingarm I must say. Now the versys 650 is for a person who wants to have that dual-sport feel, a little nimble sporty side and a little easy going tourer. It's like a pizza supreme that you like and gladly the versys 650 exists for that list of criterias. With that big tank it's carrying, it's gonna have longer range to ride and lesser worries on finding stops for fueling. Ergonomics on riding this bike, you have pretty good leg room, wide handlebars and pretty good wind protection. On the downside of this bike, to me it's not that much of a big deal because although this bike is not that stylish or sporty like it's siblings such as the Ninja 650 and the z650, the versys 650 is still great looking and has a feisty personality. It's not really a total off road bike but it is decent on hard off road surfaces. As I have mentioned that it's not really a sport bike, the versys 650 can actually tear up a good twisty road.
In closing the name versys itself means versatile system. Many motorcycle manufacturers tried to put every riding criterias on a bike, kawasaki till now has hit every point on it because there's nobody can do it like them. I would say to anyone who wants to start riding and versatility and efficiency is what they look in a bike, then versys is the one.

    I was in look for a bike that would be a well-balanced impression of my life as a moto maniac and an avid photographer by profession. While I was very confused about which bike would suit me the best, I also knew that something that was stylish and was powerful in terms of performance would serve my interests in the Read More

    I’m an adrenaline junkie and can often be seen off the roads with my Kawasaki Versys 650. Adventure-sports have been my thing ever since I was a kid and am glad to have kept it alive till date.

The design has to be trendy yet comfortable. I feel that the both the Read More
