2007 Kawasaki Versys 650 – Total Motorcycle Video Vault

Introducing the 2007 Kawasaki Versys 650 from our 2007 video vault at Total Motorcycle (http://www.totalmotorcycle.com) please enjoy this vintage video.

At Kawasaki, we know that no stretch of road has ever been ridden the same way twice. Choice of line, angle of corner approach and exit, nuance of brake and throttle, weight transfer, rhythm and timing — just some of the personal signatures of each and every ride. For enthusiasts, and particularly for Kawasaki riders, at the very heart of motorcycling lies the singular enjoyment of the ride — not merely negotiating riding conditions, but revelling in them. Like a surfer on a wave, we make each ride our own.

With the Versys we set out to create a motorcycle that would empower riders to explore fully their individual riding style and find true inspiration on all types of road, in or out of town. Riders who have experienced a wide range of riding conditions and already know plenty about how they like to ride will be very excited by what the Versys has to offer — an added dimension of ride controllability.

We wanted the Versys rider to be able more than ever to take charge of their riding experience. So the suspension settings and riding position of the Versys are specifically designed to respond to weight transfer decisions by the rider, particularly adjustments to forward-rear balance while in motion.
