2021 Kawasaki Versys 650 Grand Tourer

All Road, One Bike

starting from £9,199

Difficult to explain and impossible to categorise, the Versys simply exceeds the sum of its parts. With long-travel suspension & sporty 17” wheels, plus a slim, upright riding position and its low to mid-range focused Parallel-Twin engine, the restyled Versys 650 is a sports partner, city friend and mountain road conqueror all in one.
