REAR SEAT AND PASSENGER GRIPS
Large, double seat is on par with the seat of the Versys 650, offering excellent comfort.
SLIM UPRIGHT RIDING POSITION
The Versys-X’s slim, upright riding position and a wide handlebar offer high controllability as well as the comfort for long-distance riding.
17L FUEL TANK
Slim design of the 17-litre fuel tank makes it easier for riders to reach the ground with their feet.
HEAT MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY
Large openings in the fairing promote airflow when riding to help dissipate engine heat.
Instrument panel layout features a large analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps on one side, and a gear position indicator and multifunction LCD screen on the other gear position indicator.
SPORTY 19"/17" REAR WHEELS
While the Versys-X was not designed for off-road use, 19” front and 17” rear spoke wheels give it greater capability on unpaved roads than its larger, street-focused brothers.
LONG TRAVEL SUSPENSION
Using long-travel suspension enables the Versys-X to deliver riding excitement across a wide range of riding situations. Not all streets in the real world are made of circuit-smooth pavement.
