Kawasaki has been busy updating its model portfolio. While some motorcycles such as the Ninja 650 have received new features such as a new digital instrument cluster, others like the Ninja 400, ZX-10R get new paint options. The latest motorcycle to join this list is the Versys 1000 as Kawasaki has launched the updated model in India, which is priced at Rs 10.89 lakh (ex-showroom). Yes, Kawasaki isn’t charging extra for a new paint option.
Apart from the new paint option, the motorcycle remains the same as the older model. Kawasaki had announced massive discounts on its motorcycles but sadly, the Versys 1000 wasn’t one of them. However, we expect the bike maker to offer some offers in the coming week, which could help them sell off its current stock of BS4-compliant motorcycles.
Here’s the official press release from the company for more details:
India Kawasaki Motors Pvt. Ltd. (IKM) announces addition of new colour of Versys 1000 ‘Candy Lime Green/Metallic Spark Black’ as
variants. The price remains unchanged.
Versys 1000, Any road Any time, A crossover built out of Ninja 1000 and Z1000, having engine and chassis optimised to maximize the riding enjoyment. A proper fusion of required power with all the latest features that makes every tour the best tour. Versys 1000 is the most versatile adventure-style motorcycle Kawasaki has ever made.
Versys 1000 is built to suit plethora of riders to have good times across a wide variety of street riding scenarios. With all-new performance-increasing updates to the engine, suspension, and ergonomics, as well as increased long-ride comfort and advanced rider support technology. Complementing the increased performance and handling advancements is all new, fresh, and unique Versys styling, which showcases the balance of aesthetic appeal and functional design. The straight upright riding position is adequate enough to take the road less travelled.
The Versys 1000 features a powerful but playful liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve 1,043cc in-line four engine, which creates strong low-mid range torque and facilitates smooth power delivery. The engine has been tuned for flexibility and offers superb throttle response, strong torque throughout the rpm range.
The all-new Electronic Throttle Valves enable the ECU to control the volume of both the fuel and the air that are delivered to the engine, by way of the fuel injectors and throttle valves. The new colour option will definitely lure the customer and will be enough to tickle a thought of purchasing. The price for our new colour variant still remains the same. This price drop for our premium sports tourer litre class segment was a result of using some locally procured parts and manufacturing Versys 1000 in India.
