Motorcycle.com recently got the chance to ride the new 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 LT at its world launch in Sicily, it’s a motorcycle that’s being offered in the U.S. for the first time. With aggressive styling that mimics Kawasaki’s Ninja model line, coupled with roomy, upright ergonomics and an extremely comfortable and effective handlebar bend, this is a machine which is well-positioned for entry into the rapidly growing Sport/Adventure Touring category, priced nicely at $12,799. This video gives a glimpse into our time with the new machine and sheds a little insight into how it lives up to the outstanding reputation of its smaller Versys sibling.

    I’ve got to get ready for NYE soon, but I’ve learned to check MO because you guys like to sneak these gems in when you think no one is clicking. I know you’re an executive type, Sean, but you might as well be a salesman. I usually ask for a shootout, but now I’m thinking that won’t do. I want a demo ride!

      Uh, but please do the shootout. Ahem.
