The smaller Versys tourer treads along with its big brother in terms of design. The quirky looking front fairing of the previous model with vertically stacked lights have been replaced by a twin-headlamp design which makes the bike instantly recognizable as a Kawasaki. The rear gets an LED taillight.

The 649 cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine develops 69 PS and 64 Nm of torque. Mated to a 6-speed transmission, Kawasaki claims that the motor has been tweaked to offer high-end performance and improved fuel efficiency.

    I love the new 650 Versys! I have been crippled by indecision between the Versys, V-Strom, BMW and Triumph Tiger, but this new redesign looks like the decision is made. Thanks Kawasaki.
