Some of MCN's team headed out for the first European test on the Kawasaki Versys last week.  

The boys have compared this bike to the Yamaha FZ600s, the Ducati 620 Multistrada and the Suzuki 650 V-Strom for performance. Road tester Chad has used these four bikes to compare like for like elements.  

The Versys, which can produce 60.6bhp, will be a great bike for novices as it is user friendly.   Chad describes the excitement of riding the Kawasaki as 'getting a mouthful of lauching gas' once you start to ride it.  

Take a look at this week's edition of MCN out onWednesday, November 22 for a full report on their fun and frolics on the road. Check out their verdict on the video below.
