Purists may differ but, given that there is no longer a three-quarter racing class, there’s no reason (other than tradition) why a 750 has to be a 750. Thus Kawasaki – which has a tradition of.

The Kawasaki Versys 650 . also known as the KLE650 . is a middleweight motorcycle with a standard riding posture. introduced by Kawasaki to the European and Canadian markets at the end of 2006 as a 2007 model, and to the US market in late 2007 as a 2008 model. A California model was introduced in 2009. The name Versys is a portmanteau of the words versatile and system .

Based on the Ninja 650R / ER-6f. Compared to the Ninja 650R / ER-6f, the Versys has a more upright riding position, a re-tuned engine with stronger low and mid range power, longer suspension travel and a taller seat height. It also has a redesigned sub-frame, different seat, different handle bars, different suspension components, and a different appearance due to a different windshield and plastics.

The Versys’s 650 cc liquid cooled. four-stroke parallel-twin engine has been retuned for more bottom-end and mid-range torque. This is achieved with different camshafts and fuel injection mapping. These changes cause peak torque to occur at a lower engine speed and provide better throttle response in the 3000 to 6000 rpm range.

In addition a balance tube has been added between the exhaust headers to smooth out power delivery. Power is 59.4 hp (44 kW) @ 8,400 rpm, compared with the Ninja’s 65.7 hp (49 kW) @ 8,400 rpm. Torque is 42 lb·ft (57 N·m), compared with the Ninja’s 45.5 lb·ft (61.7 N·m) Improving the engine’s low and mid range response comes at the expense of a slight reduction in peak power however.

A similar approach was recently deployed by Honda with their CBF1000 model. The engine uses a 180 degree crankshaft. This in turn requires an uneven firing interval (180 degrees, 540 degrees) which gives the engine note a distinctive throbbing sound at idle.
