The new BS6 compliant parallel-twin engine has lost 3hp and 3Nm of torque, thereby making a total power output of 69hp and 61Nm of torque. Another change which the new Versys 650 has seen is in its weight. The BS6 Kawasaki Versys 650 has put on 2kg and thus tips the scale at 218 kg.

Apart from these two changes, the bike and its features remain unchanged. Kawasaki Versys 650 is a versatile ADV / touring bike made to tackle any terrain with ease. The pricing has also been increased by Rs. 10,000. Kawasaki has listed the new Versys 650 on its official website as the 2021 model.
