2008 Kawasaki Versys Road Test

More than ad dollars or favorable website stats, time itself often seems the precious commodity here at the 'Net's biggest online motorcycle publication. Occasionally our busy schedules don't allow us to attend every new model intro. In these rare instances we turn to respected and reliable freelance journos. Such was the case at the unveiling of the 2008 Kawasaki Versys.

Eventually we get ahead of the whirlwind that is the motorcycle industry and seize the chance to get our hands on something we think we’d really like. The Versys seemed to be a reasonably priced and capable all-rounder, but we needed to find out for ourselves. To further expand its capability, we ordered one up with a set of hard-shell saddlebags from Kawasaki’s accessory catalog.

In case you've been under a rock for the past several months, a quick primer on the funky-looking bike - available only in European spec prior to this year - reveals that much of the machine is crafted from the Ninja 650R.
