Last week, there were two new launches in this segment by two major brands, Kawasaki and TVS. Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Kawasaki launched its new ADV, the Versys 650, updated to the current BS6 norms. TVS, on the other hand, launched a new colour (yellow) for its popular scooter, the Ntorq 125 Race Edition.



Kawasaki, in the previous week, updated the Versys line-up and launched the BS6 Versys 650 in India, following the recently launched BS6 Ninja 650 and the Z 650. For 2020, the BS6 Kawasaki Versys 650 will be available in just one colour optionKawasaki’s Candy Lime Green colour, along with a similar list of features and specifications like the predecessor.

Kawasaki Versys 650 has been updated for the year 2020 with a BS6 compliant 649cc parallel-twin engine.

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.
