India Kawasaki Motors has just launched its biggest adventure touring bike for India, the Versys 1000. The recently updated Versys 1000 now comes with smarter-looking horizontal headlights, with an air vent tucked away between them. This updated Versys 1000 competes against the Suzuki V-Strom, already available here.
The Kawasaki Versys 1000 is powered by a 1043cc, four-stroke, liquid-cooled, in-line four cylinder and fuel-injected engine. There’s a DOHC and four-valve per cylinder head on the new Kawasaki Versys. Peak torque of 10.4kgm is produced at 7,500rpm on this big bike. Long stroke, fat USD forks up front and a long travel monoshock suspension at rear ensure the Versys has high ground clearance. To help halt the 249kg Versys 1000, Kawasaki has provided ABS
equipped twin petal disc brakes in front and a single disc brake at the rear.
The Kawasaki Versys 1000 is priced at Rs 12,90,000 (ex-showroom, Pune).
