Back in the early nineties I turned a road going Yamaha TDM 850 into a useful Battle of the Twins racer —
Now almost twenty years later and mainly thanks to a certain Ryan Farquhar something similar is happening with the tame-looking Kawasaki ER6/Versys 650 twin.
Here she is in standard trim —
I happened to take a turn round by the race shop when I was over that way today gathering seashells (don’t ask ) and there was one of those Kawasaki 650’s being prepared for a twins race at Cadwell this coming weekend —
She is sporting an after-market shock and a smart Arrow GP style exhaust and I suspect there will more trick bits to these upside-downies than a couple of Maxton stickers —
Very tidy —
and with Joey sitting there in the background keeping an eye on things what can possibly go wrong —
I hope to take my Tenere over that way towards the end of the week and if I time it right I could get a pic of the Versys with her bodywork fitted before she goes in the truck. Very tidy!
A quick edit and we have the ER6 Supertwin resplendent in her new bodywork after her racing debut at Cadwell Park —
She is looking good and slimmer than a slim thing —
c’est magnifique —
