Here we have another Kawasaki motorcycle, but this time, it is an adventure tourer that enjoys its position in the middleweight segment. The Kawasaki Versys 650 is a capable touring machine with a road-biased setup. It comes with a quarter fairing and a tall windshield visor that protects the rider from the high-speed windblast and thus lesser helmet buffeting.

Speaking about the engine, the Versys 650 continues to use the same 650cc, parallel-twin engine that we have already seen on the Z650 and Ninja 650. However, the state of tune is slightly different here. The liquid-cooled, 649cc, parallel-twin, fuel-injected engine comes with an 8-valve head for efficient breathing. This powerplant is designed to produce 64.8 bhp of power at 8500 rpm and 61 Nm torque at 7000 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox handles reduction and power transfer.

The features that offer the charm of a retro bike is the round headlight, old-school switchgear, a classic single-piece seat that is well-padded and provides utmost comfort.

An air-cooled, parallel-twin, 773cc engine fuelled by an electronic fuel injection system powers the Kawasaki W800. This motor gets a cam train that turns with the help of a bevel gear mechanism and not by a regular chain operated one. It pumps out 50.2 bhp of power at 6500 rpm and 62.9 Nm of torque at 4800 rpm.

The suspension setup has telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. This setup is tuned to deliver consistent and well-balanced ride quality over city and highway roads.

Despite okayish figures, the Street Twin is an excellent performer with 0 to 100 kmph coming up in just 5 seconds and a top speed north of 180 kmph. You can easily ride the bike at 100-120 kmph on the highways without stressing up the engine. When combined with raised handlebars and upright riding posture, it becomes easy to munch all those miles without breaking a sweat.

With a mileage of over 25 kmpl on the highways and a 12-litre fuel tank, you can easily clock 300 km from a single tank of fuel. A 15-litre tank would have offered an even longer range.

The suspension of the Iron 883 is on the stiffer side which causes even slight bumps to be felt by the rider. It is best ridden over good quality roads and must be slowed down over bad patches of roads.
