Video: Kawasaki Versys 1000 takes on R1200GS and Tiger 1050

Published: 19 January 2012

Kawasaki's controversial new Versys 1000 has set the cat amongst the adventure bike pigeons this week - as proven by MCN's world exclusive first test of the new monster trailie against its leading rivals.

We pitted the new Versys against two top rivals - first, the reigning adventure-bike class king, BMW's R1200GS. And second, Triumph's more road-orientated Tiger 1050.

Kawasaki says the latter is the closest rival for the Versys, for which it claims no off-road ability at all.

To read the full test, pick up a copy of the January 18 edition of MCN, out now.
