Many psychologists contend that nagging is counterproductive. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case with Kawasaki, as the flood of e-mails requesting that it bring its Versys 650 stateside worked. The Versys was introduced last year to the European and Canadian markets, and a company spokesman told us that U.S. enthusiasts were so relentless Kawasaki finally broke down and brought it here. So now that we have it, what do we call it? Is it a sportbike? Is it an adventure tourer? Perhaps it’s a practical commuter? Kawasaki appears to be unsure as well, since it categorizes the Versys as a “Jack of all trades.” It finally came up with the Versys name by combining parts of the words “versatility” and “system.”
You can tell that the previous owner of our bike decided that the Versys meant “quasi-adventure bike” to him, and the modifications back that up. Not only is it capable on the street, but the additions from the previous owner make it just as worthy for an off-road rider on some light trails. Fitted with a set of Shinko Trailmasters for the extra traction in the dirt scenarios, this baby is ready to handle it all. On top of that, some other nice features have been added to further its versatility. Some to note:
SW Motech crash bars
T Rex axle sliders
GIVI top box
Adventure style rider pegs
