2015 Kawasaki Versys 650 and Versys 1000 - Versatile System with dual headlight might be coming soon next year
Kawasaki has given a fresh look of the Versys 650 and Versys 1000 for 2015. Now, it features dual headlight which I can't keep away from comparing it with the headlight of the ZX6R 636 and also the Ninja 250. Versys 650 comes with the 649cc parallel twin liquid-cooled engine that mated with 6-speed transmission. The front brakes got the dual disc setup with 300mm petal-style rotors with two-piston calipers and ABS. Versys 1000 is equipped with the more powerful 1,043cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine also mated to 6-speed transmission. The front suspension is from KYB with 43mm which is big enough but not the upside down fork type. The braking also got more powerful as it is equipped with the bigger 310mm dual disc brake setup for the front and single 250mm disc brake at the rear.

Then, AGV upgrade the K-3 lineup by introducing the K-3 SV which refers to the K-3 with Sun Visor for comfortable riding at day or even at night. The main difference that we can see from K-3 and K-5 is the K-5 shell is made from fibreglass and also carbon fibre to ensure toughness and lightness. It is made according to the AGV Extreme Standards technology. The price is not known yet at the time of writing. 4 more pictures after the break:

Winning the heart of Malaysian riders is not easy as they want the latest and greatest. This include the latest technology in motorcycle under 150cc that is Fuel Injection system. Now, Suzuki Assemblers has taken a good step to win the Malaysian riders heart by introducing Smash FI, a 2015 model that is equipped with Fuel Injection System 115cc engine. The engine is air-cooled and this actually can give a lower maintenance since the are fewer parts to handle or repair. On Belang R150, Suzuki engineer are clever enough to use oil-cooling rather than water-cooling since the oil is already inside the engine.
