Japanese bike maker, Kawasaki has recently launched the Versys 650 adventure tourer motorcycle in the country priced at Rs. 6.6 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Versys 650 looks like a downsized version of the litre-class Kawasaki Versys 1000. It will compete against the other middleweight sports touring motorcycle like the Benelli TNT 600GT and the Honda CBR650F. The Versys 650 will be sold through the existing Probiking Sales network operated by Bajaj Auto.
Under the skin, the Versys 650 is powered by the same engine that is used to propel Ninja 650 and ER-6n. This 649cc fuel-injected parallel-twin, liquid cooled engine, paired to a 6-speed transmission churns-out a peak power of 68.05bhp at 8,500rpm with a maximum torque of 64Nm at 7,500rpm.
