Q. Should I go for Versys 650, 1000 or Tiger XRx ? I have big plans to travel around the globe on motorcycle?
  • I would Reccomended you the Vstrom650. Reason... global riding you need as light as possible , I ride a GS1200 And a TIGER800Xcx. / but on found a rented v-storm 650 I had in Thailand a God sent. Reason is you are going for long terrain hilly mountainous roads . Many time can get traffic clogged . The vs650 move at slow speed extremely well , much better in fact than the tiger and GS I feel. Also Much less clutch work. Seem to have a higher low end torque (maybe due to the vtwin) for slow hill climbing and engine braking than the Tiger. And the vtwin is really a gem of an engine . Top end speed is also no slouch . More than can legally handle. Ride comfort was superb with that amazing seat (better than the GS). Cheap easy to push around , parts pebbly easier to get also . Maybe you loose out at the top end speed and handling. But you are not going to do that in a globe trek tour. Hands down bro .
  • As per your requirements, you may go for Kawasaki Versys 1000. It delivers great power and it is comfortable too. It may not be the sharpest tool in its segment in every aspect, but its long-range comfort and inspired handling go a long way toward getting you (and a passenger) from point A to a far-away point B with a smile on your face. Do take a test ride for better clarity. Check out authorized dealership details.
