Versys 650

Kawasaki’s 650R has been a popular choice in the mid-size sports bike arena ever since its arrival in 2006. Although it isn’t the best of track tool or a full-bore tourer, the 650R is a properly well-rounded machine with sporty yet comfortable ergonomics and forgiving all-weather performance.

With Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®), the engine delivers a smooth, responsive performance with strong mid-range power for an exhilarating ride. When opening the throttle, riders will notice an extremely smooth and powerful engine character that offers both a high level of control when making minute throttle adjustments and a gratifying rush of acceleration in the lower rpm ranges.
