The Versys 1000 is the range-topping model in the company's adventure touring line-up which also comprises smaller Versys 650 and the Versys-X 300. Apart from the BS 6 update, there is no other major change in the motorcycle. It is mainly available in two colour options - Candy Lime Green/Metallic Spark Black as well as Pearl Stardust White/Metallic Spark Black. Both the options have been given the same price tag.
The main update on the bike is its revised BS 6 engine which is a 1,043 cc liquid-cooled, in-line 4-cylinder unit. It is responsible for delivering 120 PS of power at 9,000 rpm and 102 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. The output remains unchanged in comparison to the previous model. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and the bike features electronic throttle valve technology which ensures smoother performance.
Some of the key highlights of the litre-class adventure tourer include its twin LED headlamps, semi-digital instrument cluster, radially mounted front brake callipers, assist and slipper clutch, conveniently placed power socket and rider friendly ergonomics.
The bike is well kitted in terms of electronics and riding aids and features such electronic cruise control, Kawasaki Traction Control, Kawasaki Cornering Management Function and Kawasaki Intelligent ABS.
