gots me a copy of the maiden issue of top bikes, according to them kawasaki might start selling the versys in our fair islands? any insider information or people in the know please share! i think its about time this bike come out and also the honda Crossrunner which is also thailand made. crossing fingers on this one!
I like the Kawasaki Versys 650, it looks fun!
I hope Kawasaki Philippines will soon include the Versys to their Leisure Bikes line-up.
astig nga yung bagong 1000cc pero siguro over the top ang lakas niyan specially pag napa off road ka na, di rin siguro bababa sa 450LBS yun. pero to each on his own ika nga. isa pang bike na subaybayin natin ay yung honda nc700x, itong nc700 series mayroon ding standard 's' model pero 'x' adventure all around ang dating. pero palagay ko itong versys ang panalo maganda positioning ng kawasaki, huwag lang abusuhin at rektahin yung mga buyers through prohibitive overpricing.
sana same price with ninja 650

Got a copy of that bike magazine too that is why i call immediately my friend from kawasaki but sad to note that they will not bringing this bike here in PI
Ride Hard or Stay Home
I think kawasaki will bring the versys 650 here. Same engine as er6f. Different category. This is a NO Brainer again for kawasaki. Hehe.
It was the same ER6F less the fairings but they think otherwise.
So I dont know how they will treat the Versys.
I've heard great reviews about the Versys and beats me why Kawasaki Phils. is so reluctant to bring in this bikes (versys & er6n).
The Versys will give BMW a run for its money.
I have friends in neighboring countries that can attest to the durability of the Versys & it beat the BMW GS with no breakdown during their tour 2 years ago from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (via Turkey). BMWs broke down along the way.
Kawasaki Philippines, sorry to say.... natutulog sa pansitan.
The ER6N will compete with the ER6F that's why they are reluctant to bring it here in the PI, plus the fact that one can purchase an ER6N conversion kit... While the Versys 650 has a different league of its own...

pasingit lang po...saan po ba makikita yung cdi nung fury natin??...meron po kasi akong ipapawelding ehh...
If indeed Kawasaki Phils. think that ER6F will compete with ER6N then they are indeed "natututlog sa pansitan". Its like saying Colgate shouldn't sell Colgate Blue because it competes with Colgate White. Eh saan ba mangagaling benta ng ER6N, kung di sa kanila din? So what's competition there? Its like selling varieties to secure different market segment.
With regards to the kit, there's no kit. To convert the ER6F to ER6N you'll have to buy the parts one by one (headlights, farings, side mirror, instrument cluster)... and would cost P50,000+ and the shipping cost from Bangkok not included.
(peace bro.... no barb intended.... just my 2 cents)

I'm not really sure what the Market Analyst of KMPC sees... I'm pretty sure they are seeing something on a marketing point of view that's why they did not bring the ER6N here in the PI... But for the Versys, I suppose they want to explore the adventure touring market and see if it will be successful. They'll probably compete with the BMW GS series...
Hi, new to the group. I for one am very interested in the Versys 650. Maybe a show of interest here can help persuade the powers that be to bring them in.
Is it true that the Versys is designed for street only? Cannot be used offroad due to the lower location of the pipe & the upside down shocks not designed for offroading. I read it somewhere on the internet. Ill try to find the link....
Here's the link where it says: The Versys really is not a dual-purpose bike but rather an all pavement bike. Thanks to its ZR rated tires, alloy wheels, and exposed and low exhaust system this bike is not recommended for off road use. However, it does offer a wide selection of riding options as long as they are on pavement and the bike will not be subjected to abuse.
Im also interested with this. Hopefully they bring it in.
