The hefty one Kawasaki Versys 1000
> £4500-£7000 > 2012-2014 > 1043cc inline four > 116bhp > 239kg A great choice for couples. Z1000-based engine has masses of easy midrange, the adjustable screen and broad bodywork are protective and both seats are luxuriously plush. When it was launched, Kawasaki claimed this was its most comfortable pillion perch ever – even nicer than the 1400GTR. A chunky choice though – and that’s being polite.
