Revamped Kawasaki Versys for 2010
The updates to the often over-looked Versys come a year after the rest of the ER-6 range was revamped and improves the looks with new front and rear lights and a modified radiator cowl. The 62bhp 649cc parallel-twin motor remains unchanged, as do the chassis and suspension.
The updated cosmetics give the bike a slimmer, sleeker look and Kawasaki claim to have worked hard raising the quality of finish.
The new front lights are stacked above each other, the new rear light is LED and – like the new Z1000 - there is also a new front mudguard.
In line with the Versys’ reputation as a consummate practical machine, there are a number of detail changes along these lines, including revised mirrors with improved visibility and new accessories such as handguards, heated grips and a 12volt outlet. Revised footrests with hollow rubber inserts reduce vibration.
