2022 Kawasaki Versys 650 Design & Features

The 2022 Kawasaki Versys 650 has received a subtle makeover in terms of its looks which are now inspired by its larger Versys 1000 sibling. The half-fairing at the front features a small beak-like element underneath the new dual LED headlights. Also seen is a new four-way adjustable windscreen. The new Versys 650 features new graphics and is offered in two different colour options for 2022 - Lime Green and Metallic Phantom Silver.

The all-new 2022 Versys 650 features the Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC) which features two different modes - one which is less intrusive while the other intervenes a lot more and helps while riding through low-grip areas. The traction control system can be turned off as well.

Thoughts About The 2022 Kawasaki Versys 650

The price of the new 2022 Kawasaki Versys 650 has risen by Rs 21,000 compared to its predecessor. However, all the upgrades in the form of the revised design, new traction control, TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity and the new adjustable windscreen, the increase in price doesn't seem to be that big of a deal. In fact, the new bike feels more like a steal compared to the previous Versys 650.

The new Versys 650 will take on the likes of the Suzuki V-Strom 650XT and the Triumph Tiger Sport 660 and given that the Kawasaki undercuts both its rivals by around a lakh and half, it sure looks to be the better deal in this rather niche segment.
