6 speed
Reliable
Plenty of travel
200mi range
Slanted toward dirt
Minimum of 2 cylinders
<$3000

Several others have used the Ninja 650r as a basis for their dualsport creations. After a bit of research I figured it may just fit my needs. And so it began.

Thanks to the folks that have provided information and motivation to get this going.

A different kind of Versys - tonymorr
Kawasaki ER-6C, that's C as in Custom - jdrocks
The KaTaMaki 650 ADV project (KTM LC4 gets a twin engine swap) - LukasM

As of 3-21-10

sanjoh - this is just badass looking, mate. I am right there with you
regarding the 650R's multi-functional potential. I would love to find
a converted unit for sale.


Keep us posted!
