Versys 650

General Details


Difficult to explain and impossible to categorise, the Versys 650 is one of those machines that exceeds the sum of its parts. Its combination of long-travel suspension & sporty 17” wheels, a slim, upright riding position and a low-mid range focused Parallel-Twin engine results in a highly versatile package able to offer riders maximum riding excitement in a wide variety of street-riding situations, especially on twisty mountain roads. For 2015, its new styling package better reflects this fun, sporty nature, while a number of updates to the chassis and a host of new accessory items make it easier for Versys owners to ride longer and farther.
