2020 Kawasaki Versys 650 LT | Road Test Review






The Kawasaki 650 LT received its last major update in 2015 and with ample storage capacity, a friendly parallel-twin engine, as well as an agile chassis ? this middleweight sport-touring machine still entices. Photos by Kevin Wing.

When the current generation of Kawasaki?s Versys 650 LT appeared on the scene in 2015, the motorcycle landscape was a different place. Things like full-color TFT instrument panels, ride-by-wire throttles, and electronic aid packages with IMUs were reserved for an elite class. Today, those features are all but ubiquitous among liter bikes in nearly every category. They have even begun trickling down to select middleweights. Heck, the latest Kawasaki Ninja 650 has a TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity.

In a rapidly advancing world, the Versys 650 LT has studiously marched on, gaining a devout following for its affordability and utility. Its basic analog and LCD dash works well enough ? the first LT came out long before ride modes were a twinkle in an engineer?s eye for this segment. Modern LED headlights would be an improvement over its halogen bulbs. The 649cc parallel-twin engine is eager and astoundingly dependable while missing some of the excitement seen in competitors. All of that is mated to a compliant chassis that?s proven itself in commuting and touring roles.

A basic analog and LCD instrument panel is easy to read, including helpful features like a gear indicator. Simple and effective.

What I?m describing isn?t the flashiest model with the latest whiz-bang gadgetry; although ABS is standard, the 2020 Kawasaki Versys 650 LT is a blue-collar workhorse ? a bike of the people.
Two essential features define the LT model: hand guards and key-matched, quick-release 28-liter hard saddlebags that will hold a full-face helmet in each side. That?s plenty of storage for trips, short and long.

With a wet weight of 501 pounds, the 650 LT is commendably agile, tipping into corners easily. A slightly stiffer suspension setup would boost chassis confidence.

Saddle up on the 650 LT, and you?re met with a bolt upright, neutral riding position, and riser handlebars that elevate your arms comfortably. Interestingly, the seat height is a somewhat lofty 33.1-inches, but the pleasantly plush saddle and compliant suspension squish down, allowing my 32-inch inseam to plant my feet on the deck. Also, Kawasaki has done a decent job of keeping the Versys 650 LT chassis at a trim width, further aiding the plight of shorter riders. Toss in the adjustable windscreen, standard hand guards and decently sized fairing, and the rider is adequately protected from the elements on long rides or short. From the handlebars to the footpegs, just about every touch point is rubber damped or counter-weighted, whittling the engine?s vibrations down to a tolerable minimum. 

The Versys? beating heart is a 649cc DOHC parallel-twin powerplant, which churned out a respectable 63.2 horsepower at 8,700 rpm and 43 lb-ft of tor...
