SLEEK, FLICKABLE CHASSIS

The key to the Versys 650 sleek chassis is its compact Parallel Twin engine, which allows the use of a slim, lightweight frame. Together with the forward-located seat position and the under-engine muffler, this engine-frame combination delivers a highly centralised mass distribution, which contributes to the highly agile package. High priority was given to achieving chassis settings that deliver a high level of feedback, better enabling the rider to recognise the bike’s limits.

COMPACT PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE FOR LOW-MID RANGE TORQUE

Tuning of the 649cm3 Parallel-Twin engine is focused on achieving a throttle response that balanced a powerful feeling and a quick-revving character. To optimise performance for everyday riding, care was taking to maximise low-mid range torque. When opening the throttle, riders will notice an extremely smooth and powerful engine character that offers both a high level of control when making minute throttle adjustments and a gratifying rush of acceleration in the lower rpm ranges. Engine updates result in increased high rpm performance and improves fuel economy.

SLIM, UPRIGHT RIDING POSITION

When engineers considered the kind of riding they wanted to offer, and the speed range most often used in everyday riding, a naturally relaxed posture and high controllability care of a slim, upright position with wide handlebars was deemed ideal. Because it would have a great impact on rider control and enjoyment, a substantial amount of development time and effort was devoted to fine-tuning the riding position.

HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKING WITH ABS

The Versys 650’s triple petal disc brakes offer superb stopping power and feel at the lever. Updates for the new model deliver both increased brake force and controllability. ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) ensures stable braking performance by preventing wheel lock during braking.

TANDEM COMFORT

Sometimes sharing the ride is half the fun. The Versys 650 has a number of features that make tandem riding enjoyable for both rider and pillion.

TOURING POTENTIAL

For riders who prefer longer excursions, a comfortable seat, relaxed riding position, large-volume fuel tank, protection from the adjustable windscreen and enhanced touring potential make the Versys 650 a very capable touring partner. A number of optional accessories further increase the Versys’ touring potential.
