“The Almost perfect do it all bike”

Written on: 21/03/2013 by Jonnster71 (2 reviews written)

I've owned my 2010 Kawasaki Versys 650 ABS (mk2) for 2 years and covered 10k miles, so here's my thoughts on ownership. Reasons I bought this bike that still hold true after 2 years of all weather riding in the miserable British climate: Ergonomics - a really lovely fit for me (6'0") with high wide bars and an upright riding position. Value - 0% finance on £6k bike was a really good deal at the time. Engine - it really is amazing how much they've squeezed out of this engine. It does not feel… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/04/2011 by Antares2X (4 reviews written)

I just had the bike for 2 weeks and so far I am perfectly happy with it. The engine is extremely smooth and not too noisy and the handling and suspension are very good too. I use the bike mostly in city-traffic and there its light-weight and nimble handling really shine. Cutting through rush-hour traffic is a real blast. This is my 3rd bike after a Suzuki 150 and a Kawasaki D-Tracker 250 and the best I've ever had. In my opinion it strikes the perfect balance between power, handling and… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2009

Upgrading from a 125cc Varadero, commute 30 mins each way daily in heavy traffic on a range of roads (dual carridgeway, town, country road). Chose this Kawaski Versys over the transalp and v-strom, and was perfect choice, a lot more power but very easy to handle and well balanced, fits my 6ft height (often problems fitting my knees into cut-outs with 36" legs), lots of accessories to choose from - it is a lot of fun to ride as well!! It is a very upright sitting position, which took me a… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/06/2008 by lowenthal (1 review written)

11,000km in the odometer, driven from Guatemala to Belize in all kinds of tarmac. A very reliable engine with lots of grunt, suspension is exemplar, cruising speed with givy shield 145km, such a comfortable ride. What else can I ask for. Oh, I had forgotten. BMW 1200GS left easily behind in the twisties… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/01/2008 by heybone111 (1 review written)

(Female rider) I really like the quirky looks. The seating position is great, and the seat is very comfortable even on all day rides. The bike is extremely nimble, and has plenty of power. The size is a near perfect fit for my 5'5", 32 inseam. Because the bike is light, and balanced, you don't have to have both feet flat on the ground at stops. I find the breaking to be good. The power to be there for the asking, and the nimble ride a blast. I give my Versys a 10!… Read Full Review

“Riding a new bike is always a matter of anticipation....”

Written on: 08/12/2007 by casperdog777 (2 reviews written)

Riding a new bike is always a matter of anticipation. Will the experience match the desire? Here is the offering from Kawasaki, using the ER6 engine in a new frame and uprated long travel suspension. This is a a new sector bike which defies a logical slot in any category. It is a do it all rounder and the 64 bhp pumps out enough power for most sane people in the real world. The water cooled twin cylinder can quickly achieve a 70 mph speed and beyond is no problem. The bike feels responsive and… Read Full Review
