Kawasaki Versys?

Looks like Kawasaki has a wee-strom now I wonder if it will make it to the US.

Funny - I think it's sexy.

Oh well - beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Cheers.

thats pretty interesting. I have ridden the ER650 and the parallel twin is a little buzzier than my wee... but still a fun engine. I just hope the Versys sits a little bigger than the ER.

I like it...definitely different looking. That muffler looks like it would prevent a centerstand, though. Kawasaki already has a V-strom variant, don't they? I saw an orange one performing as a camera bike during the Tour de France. Is it only the 1000cc version?

05 DL650 - blue
03 YZF-R1 - silver

Versys

Is it just me, or does it look just like the new Ninja 650R with a different fairing?
