|New Kawasaki Versys 650
The Kawasaki Versys
has taken the world by storm since it's introduction. When it was announced
that Kawasaki were to launch perhaps the best all round bike that had
been seen for years many riders were optimistic to say the least. No
one could have predicted what a great motorcycle the Versys was
to be. At it's press release and ever since this bike
has defined and filled a much needed gap in modern motorcycling.
Kawasaki define this bike as their "versatile system" and they have
got it spot on. The Versys will commute, tour, tackle inner city
traffic, and even perform as a sports bike at the weekned.
To sum it up this great
value for money motorcycle is a jack of all trades and one which every
motorcyclist should seriously take a look at to buy.
Kawasaki Versys is powered by a high torque output
649cc parallel twin engine which has been developed and tuned to give
rapid acceleration combined with high mid range power. From even low
revs this bike takes off like a missile compared to other models in
its class. The chassis and
suspension on this bike is without
exception the best in its range. Fully adjustable upside down long
travel forks combine with a side mounted rear shock (adjustable
preload and rebound) to give almost neutral handling and great rider
comfort. This high tech rear suspension is mounted onto a beautiful
gull wing type swinging arm which is longer than average due to the
compact chassis and engine configuration.
All this makes the new 2008
the best performing and all round motorcycle that has been
available to buy for many years
