2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 Test Ride & Thoughts
Don't want to call this a review in case some people bring up why didn't I
mention any of the technical data and jargon etc. If you follow my channel
you will understand I'm looking for an upgrade from my current Honda
The Versys 1000 is super smooth and has all that power when you need it. It
will eat all the miles on highways or twisties so it is a do it all
machine. That's if you are a tall person. I find the seat height is a bit
too much for me for town riding and it's heavier than the KTM 1050
Adventure, Triumph Tiger 800 or the Yamaha MT09 Tracer. It's a small trade
off I guess for all that comfort.

2009 Kawasaki Versys Test ride
My first outing on a new Versys. I was impressed with the Versys, especialy
after riding the BMW f650gs just a week prior. Where the BMW lacks the
Versys excells. The motor in the Versys is nearly perfect, peppy, tons of
top end, and nothing to complain about in the bottom end. The bike has an
excelent factory seat and seating postion, but could use a little bit
longer seat. The distance between the tank and back seat is a little small
for bigger guys. Brakes worked well, but i didn't like the levers, I would
like to have a lever with a little bit more bent in it. Gear box is verry
positive feeling and you really know when you are in the next gear, or
neutral. The factory windshield is average, providing adequate wind
protection at highway speeds. Pegs are low and in a comfortable front to
back position. Fit and finish on the bike is excelent, and i'm looking
forward to adding some accesories and doing a long term ride report.
The Versys seems like a well suited street alternative to the great Suzuki
V-Strom 650, and a cheaper and better street alternative to the BMW f650gs.
The Strom seems to have a larger seating area, but also feels a bit wide
and long. One of the things most love about the Strom is also its biggest
downfall, the 19" front wheel. It hinders the Strom on the street, but as
with the Versys the 17" front wheel seems to hinder it in the Dual Sport
