When talking about Kawasaki and its versatile, do-everything bike, the name that will always come up is the Versys. It doesn’t have the same heritage as its Kawasaki contemporaries, but when it hit the scene a few years ago, it received universal praise from everybody, including being named the "Motorcycle of the Year" by Motorcyclist Magazine.
This year, Kawasaki is bringing back the Versys and if the 2010 model is any indication of what we’re in store for with the 2011 model, then prepare to make room for this bike in your garage.
It’s not even the most powerful bike in the Japanese bike maker’s line-up, but where it lacks in power, it more than makes up for in just about everything else. It looks great; it’s got enough performance capabilities to exude the Kawasaki tradition; and it’s got top-quality suspensions to make the ride as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.
Don’t mistake this bike for anything else. If you’re looking for breakneck power and speed, look elsewhere. But if you’re looking for a bike that gives a decent amount of everything you want, there’s nothing better than the Versys.

Kawasaki presents their 2010 entry-level supermoto model, the KLX250SF, a motorcycle derived from the dual sport one with almost the same name. The engine and frame are those of the KLX250S, while the wheels are now suitable mostly for street exploitation and the suspensions position the bike as low as possible. That means a big “Aim here!!!” for beginners attracted by supermoto bikes, but also for those in search of a fun and versatile motorcycle capable of much more than what this category stands for.
