From ZZR600 to Versys 650
« on: Apr 16, 2019, 09:20 PM »
Hey all, Have always loved Kawasaki and have to admit the versys is a gem, I don't like it being referred to as a good "beginner" motorcycle, as far as i am concerned its a great bike. i am based in wales and am loving the bike on the windy welsh roads.

Thanks admin for the add.

Welcome lwsg296,

Agree with you the Versys is  a great bike, previously have owned a ZZR600 a 55 plate Blue one. I found that a lovely bike as well if a little heavy.

I thought I would miss the ZZR but, not really such a different bike. Yes it was a lot heavier but then it was a lower ride. The versys just suits me now.

Wales is what the Versys is made for .
The way I look at it, its fast enough to scare me and slow enough not to get me into too much trouble. Its  a very forgiving bike in what it lets you get away with

Hi and welcome to the forum. I also went from a ZZR600 to a Versys 650 that was back in 2009. Now I'm on my second Versy s 1000.
Enjoy your new ride.

Second what Clunkyboy said. Wales + Versys = perfect riding.

We did your manor on the Versys Meet recently and many commented on what a beautiful area it is. Enjoy.

 :185:    to the forum Iwsg.

Hope that you enjoy the new bike, they really are a cracking bit of kit, and are more than capable of all aspects of biking.
