    The latestincarnation of the Versys 650 has been launched by Kawasaki at the prestigiousIntermot motorcycle exhibition in Cologne, Germany. The Versys 650, alreadypopular for its multi-purpose capabilities and its fun character, has beenredesigned to reflect the sporty range-wide Kawasaki DNA and has received amultitude of upgrades for 2015. >
    Afresh new look has been given to this all-around machine, uniting both designand a fun and sporty character to create the ultimate Versys 650. The Kawasakifamily styling is prominent in the dual front headlamps and the new cowling, whichnot only look the part but also improve wind protection and aerodynamics. >
    Theproven 649 cm3 engine retains its familiar low and mid-range torque, essentialfor daily riding and two-wheeled fun, but has received a boost in the high rpmperformance to enhance its sporty character. Fuel efficiency has also beenimproved to ensure hours of enjoyment on any street.

    Upgrades have been made to the long travel 41mmsuspension which now has separate functions for each tube, allowing alladjusters to be at the top of the fork for easy personal refinement. Newbike-specific settings contribute to both light handling and ride comfort. Therear suspension features an easy-to-access remote preload adjuster aidingeffortless fine-tuning for pillion riding or load-heavy outings.

    Addingto the many upgrades the new Versys 650 boasts, the stopping force of the newmotorcycle has also been enhanced. New calipers, revised master cylindersettings, new brake pad material and a larger φ250 mm rear disc all deliverincreased controllability, stronger initial bite and greater overall brakeforce.

    However,the Versys 650 is not only about daily commuting and solo riding. This bikewill devour long distances, alone or in the company of a pillion rider. Keepingthis in mind, the touring capabilities of the Versys 650 have been improved byincreasing the payload, allowing riders to take more with them and by includingmany useful accessories in the Kawasaki inventory. A stronger rear frame allowsaccessory clean-mount panniers and a top case to be used at the same time. Anall-new larger adjustable windscreen offers comfort and protection to ridersusing simple hand-adjust knurled wheels. The fuel tank now holds 21L of fuel(previously 19L) so highway cruising or twisty excursions neednt beinterrupted by frequent refuelling.

    I know its OT, but this somehow reminds me of Mojo. Mahindra should get inspired by this design and bring on faired version of Mojo. .

    No No, I am not saying the Design reminds me of Mojo. My sanity would be questioned then :P. The Purpose of the bike does make me think about Mojo. Dont you think, Mojo with such a fairing will serve the purpose of hardcore touring. It would be more practical than the current Mojo being tested.

    Why is there a difference in the swingarm, One on the right side looks like aluminium and one on the left looks like the one from N300. Or I am blind ??
