Kawasaki Versys 2010

doesn`t feel the Versys was as as it should have been. If so then the 2010 version to make amends.

At the presentation of the 2010 model I was told the claim that this was a for every rider wasn`t accurate, it wouldn`t really do the job for riders, and as a result sales been as good as they

Well if a superbike rider thought a 650 twin with travel suspension was going to him the same thrill as a ZX-10R, taken a few too many knocks to the As for me, I loved it and rated it as one of the best of 2006. If it hasn`t been on riders` radars at purchase since then, maybe marketing departments should some of the blame because effort promoting it surely have resulted in more, and sales.

You are missing some content that should here! Perhaps your cannot display it, or maybe it did not correctly.

Kawasaki certainly listened to owners, who liked its versatility, price, response, wind and urban performance, while the headlamp design, wind (a split decision then. ) and suspension. All of these and other were addressed by the facelifted model, which has seen to its styling, lights and screen efforts made to reduce reaching the rider, another

The bike`s face is the most obvious change, where a of stacked headlights topped by the light and flanked by more and angular bodywork, replaces the old Stones tongue look of the version. This gives the a leaner, more modern and defined look which confidence to the design. There are subtle improvements too, as the revised passenger seat is wider with more softer footrest rubber and rear to reduce vibration, a new rear engine mounting for the same purpose, new mirrors, shrouds, engine side the same LED taillight as the Z1000 and indicators.

The suspension was changed for the 09 model in to those complaints that is was too — it has softer springs and new settings, while changes to the silencer internals the same (to meet Euro 3 emissions have also been over, though there`s now a new end cap

Lots of detail alterations but nothing on the scale of engine or chassis changes, yet one of the upgrades has the Versys significantly. It`s enough from the seat with a wieldy, rangy that`s comfortable and natural, why this breed of `tall-rounder` is the traditional sports tourer as the for everyman. The clutch is light a long travel between and fully home, making easier for less experienced then the motor pulls from low revs and spins offering a lively performance its range.

The previous machine did the fun sometimes with excessive but the moves made on the new one to counter have worked, You still get a few slipping through the net but they`re no intrusive, in particular cruising at a 70-90mph (112-145kph), typical speeds. There`s some at small throttle openings at the level but this is the worst get and it will bother very few and overall the new Versys feels a lot than the old.

If the vibration reduction is the most and significant improvement, the others been helpful too. The new creates a larger wind behind it, and particular in the highest it not only protects you more, the is a lot smoother. On the old bike, raising the created enough bothersome to persuade many riders to it alone, but on the 2010 bike worth the rather fiddly to set it in the highest position.

This mean undoing four bolts, tugging out the rubber-mounted nuts with some and extracting the plastic blanking (very difficult until shown how. get it wrong and break something), and if you`re like me, breaking the odd fingernail But it`s not designed to be adjusted so put some effort into it right, then leave it and although I`m tall I`d recommend the setting for everyone, I can`t see why you

The new mirrors work better, because they`re wider at the ends, improving the field of but also because the reduced mean they don`t so much. This does from bike to bike but it`s still better.

If planning on riding with a regularly, note that the seat changes feel on the back, the pillion does perched high and right at the of the seat (which you can even see in the and somewhat precarious as a result. The are a touch too far forward too, the sensation they`re going to off the back.

A top box would solve this but the Versys`s official accessory is designed so you can fit either a top box or panniers, but not the set, presumably to prevent But the bike does ride with a passenger, feeling and solid to the rider and not too flighty on bumpy surfaces.

The extra does stretch the braking The front stopper demands a squeeze and never feels powerful, and with the weight of an person starts to feel Maybe a sharper brake trouble the long travel though, and you adapt to the extra needed, but some riders prefer more power.

The ABS is worth going for.

Versys values are unchanged, and as well as this is a fine It responds sharply to steering and is a hoot on the kind of twisty mountain roads we were enough to ride, yet stable to inspire confidence in other The engine is punchy and satisfying the fuel injection pump at idle can get irritating) and the ride is excellent.

As an urban tool it`s for sports riding it`s and the 4.2 gallon (19 litres, 5.0 gallons US) is enough for a 210 mile (340km) at the 50mpg (17.7km/l, 5.65 42mpg US) most riders achieve.

My only doubts its suitability for two-up touring, the full luggage set and with feeling insecure. But at £6,110 on the it`s great value, and fun too.
