There’s A New Kawasaki Versys In Town

The Versys 1000 S is the new mid-spec variant in the lineup, between the base and the SE variants


While here in India, the Kawasaki Versys 1000 does offer a balanced, sporty ADV option at a reasonable price, the truth is that we only get the base variant in the lineup. Overseas, the top-spec SE variant comes with goodies like smartphone connectivity, heated grips, cornering auxiliary lights, Kawasaki Quick Shifter, and even the company’s self-healing paint! But the biggest change on the Versys 1000 SE compared to the bike that we get here is the suspension: The flagship variant gets electronic suspension and in fact, for 2021, it has even received the Showa Skyhook system.

But all this is expensive, meaning that the Versys 1000 SE sells for €16,517 (approx Rs 14.19) in Europe, a pretty hefty sum. So to provide a more affordable alternative, Kawasaki has rolled out the S variant. The newly-launched Versys 1000 S gets most of the SE’s features like smartphone connectivity, heated grips, cornering auxiliary lights, a quickshifter and self-healing paint, but misses out on the electronic suspension. Instead, it gets suspension that is manually adjustable for preload and rebound damping, just like the bike sold in India.

As a result of this, Kawasaki has been able to shave almost €2000 off the SE’s price, placing the S at €14,568 (approx Rs 12.52). Unfortunately, we don’t think Kawasaki will be bringing this variant over to India anytime soon.
