Versys 650 – 2016

R115 995

Metallic Carbon Grey or Pearl Stardust White

  1. General Details


    Difficult to explain and impossible to categorise, the Versys 650 is one of those machines that exceeds the sum of its parts. Its combination of long-travel suspension & sporty 17” wheels, a slim, upright riding position and a low-mid range focused Parallel-Twin engine results in a highly versatile package able to offer riders maximum riding excitement in a wide variety of street-riding situations, especially on twisty mountain roads. For 2015, its new styling package better reflects this fun, sporty nature, while a number of updates to the chassis and a host of new accessory items make it easier for Versys owners to ride longer and farther.
