Versys 650, a small displacement motor offering from Kawasaki, is ready to make its appearance in the country along with the new additional feature, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Earlier this year, the company has imported non-ABS version of Versys 650 in the country for homologation purpose or research & development. Since then, it has been in the talk of the enthusiasts. There are speculation that the small engine motorcycle could be launched in the country in the upcoming months. It seems like the company is taking interest in the expansion of Indian product portfolio.
The Kawasaki Versys 650 is the younger sibling of liter-class tourer Versys 1000, which is powered by a liquid-cooled parallel-twin fuel injected motor. The 649cc motor has been tuned to produce 68.1 BHP of power at 8,500 RPM and 64 Nm of torque at 7,000 RPM, all the power sent to the rear wheel via a six-speed transmission. Mechanically wise, the tourer machine is best for the any kind of terrains as it comes featured with dual channel disc brake at the front and solo disc brake at the rear. The company is offering Anti-lock Braking System in the motorcycle. The ABS version of Versys 650 is already being offered in the global market.
In addition to Anti-lock Braking System, the Versys 650 will also benefit with adjustable suspension springs up front as well as at the back. In terms of design and body cues, the Versys 650 looks very identical to its class-liter sibling. The Versys 650 will be coming with dual headlights, quarter fairing, a large fuel tank and LED tail lights. The adjustable windshield and reach-adjustable handlebars are going to justify its purpose for being an adventure/sports machine. The expected price of the motorcycle would around Rs. 5.15 lakhs.
