    Thursday | Motorcycle.com

    Has anybody built a proper "adventure bike" with an inline-Four cylinder before this one? We liked the new Kawasaki Versys 1000 when we compared it with its competition earlier this year , but it's more sport-tourer than a real sporty adventure bike - mainly because it weighs 565 pounds.

    Gone is the oddball styling of the previous Versys, replaced by a sleek, cat-eyed aesthetic similar to that of Kawasaki's Ninja sportbikes. The smooth, powerful Versys 1000 is the most comfortable bike in this comparison, but it also throws off some engine heat.
