Kawasaki Versys X-300 (2017 onwards)

The Kawasaki Versys X-300 can be described as a jack of all trades, but master of none. It is an affordable A2 motorcycle that is capable of both adventure touring and commuting. You will also be able to ride this bike on some lighter off-road trails and bumpy roads, which is a big plus.

The Kawasaki Versys X-300 comes with the same parallel-twin engine that can also be found in the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Z300. The handling is very good and the clutch feels light yet responsive. It is a great starter bike that offers a lot of fun and is super easy to ride.

Unfortunately, the engine of the Versys X-300 produces some vibrations at higher speeds and the seat is way too hard, which can make longer rides uncomfortable.
