An eclectic, 457-lb. fusion of sport and standard, with a whiff of all-surface adventure to keep things interesting, the Versys is just about anything you want it to be. Powered by a massaged version of the Ninja 650R parallel-twin, the Versys makes 5 fewer horses. On the plus side, its more accessible 44 lb.-ft. of torque are more obliging in daily urban combat. Compliant Kayaba suspension and decent wind protection leave a twinge of vibration around 5000 rpm as the only irritant to long days in the saddle. One 5-gallon tankful can cover 220 miles or so under a discreet right wrist.
