2010 Versys Video

Click video to see the new 2010 Kawasaki Versys preview. The Versys has a compact liquid-cooled fuel-injected 649cc parallel-twin engine that is light and nimble. Lively enough for advanced riders and predictable enough to inspire confidence in rank novices, the torquey twin delivers a deep ribbon of torque in the lower and middle parts of its rev range, making the Kawasaki Versys a perfect commuter and relaxed traveling companion.

Its surprising genius becomes readily apparent once the roads turn twisty, because despite its comfort and civility, the fun-to-ride Kawasaki Versys also offers genuine sportbike handling. And excellent fuel economy combined with a big, 5-gallon fuel tank lets you go a long way between gas pumps.
