Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Changes are in line with the new Versys 1000.

Keeping company to the outrageous Ninja H2R concept at the INTERMOT 2014 are the 2015 Kawasaki Versys 650 and Versys 1000.

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 The quirky looking front fairing of the previous model with vertically stacked lights have been replaced by a twin-headlamp design which makes the bike instantly recognizable as a Kawasaki.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.
