Full details of new version on this link 👍☺️


www.kawasaki.co.uk/en/news/Versys_650_makes_the_right_moves_for_2022_?Uid=0924DFAKDVoMW1lQXw5fXFoKXVFcXQ5ZWwoMCV9cWgoMCw0

Practically speaking, the Versys now features a redesigned upper cowl and new four-position windshield design with screen adjustment being even easier plus an option of a larger screen for ultimate element isolation. LED lights and indicators make the machine unmissable while reassurance is delivered via KTRC traction control and its two rider selectable modes.

Riding is what Versys owners care about most, and the slim, tubular chassis and narrow engine profile certainly deliver a flickable package that is both comfortable over distance and fun to be in command of. Certainly, most riders will want to (and be able to) ride until the last vestiges of fuel in the capacious 21L fuel tank are sipped before stopping to refuel. Frugal and fun, the Versys 650 is perhaps best explained as a “thoroughbred workhorse”, ready to respond to the most radical distance demand yet pursuing its task with a lightness of touch and all-day comfort that prepares both rider and passenger for the next day’s ride….  and the day after that.

For Versys riders there is the convenience of a TFT colour meter with Smartphone Bluetooth connectivity linking machine and phone in order to access Kawasaki’s Rideology App which allows monitoring of numerous machine functions and overviews of routes taken plus other functions. Add the convenience of an optional USB outlet along with other practical accessories and the logic of each move Kawasaki has made to enhance the Versys 650 for the new season makes perfect, practical sense.

Wow, just when you thought they couldn't go any lower with the design, they hit it with the big ugly stick...   :015: 

Maybe it doesn't look as bad better in person.   :008:

Where's are the substantial changes, like the Ninja/Z650 chassis with more sophisticated and lighter design?  Maybe some improvements to the suspension calibration?   Another year of BNG...  :125:

Good job it got winglets otherwise it would never be able to keep up  :015:
I dont think it looks to bad but wish they would keep the electronics out of it, I know its the way to go but for the Versys, I prefer the less is more approach I don't need a ridology app, i got a mmap  and a memory(well some of my memory works ) and a phone already. Whats it gonna tell me and more importantly its gonna tell others more than I want them to know. Alas this is progress

I don't like the shape of the plastics of the MK3 Versys 1000, so i was never going to like the 2022 650 if they gave it the same outline.

New clocks/dash !!!! Nah, don't need something the size of a mini tele stuck in front of me. I would much prefer to watch where I am going.

The other stuff, that you need a smart phone to be compatible with = no use whatsoever to me, coz I don't posses a smart phone.

I'm sure that it will be a cracking bike though, just not for me. I will be sticking with the old fashioned one that I already have.  :152:

Prices heading towards what I paid for my old mk1 V1k!
Suppose they gotta change something like Microsoft trying to make Windows more IOS-ish but I’d rather have my bog standard mk3. Why do I need traction control for on a 650… maybe huge air bags instead would be more beneficial methinks or accident detection tech  :002:
Looks ok, if I had to have one so be it, as long as it has the heart of the v650.
