Both the Versys 1000’s engine and chassis were designed to maximise rider enjoyment on the street. Its 1,043 cc In-Line Four delivers a rewarding surge of acceleration with every twist of the throttle. The chassis balance and long-travel suspension settings enable superb control and feedback, offering a high level of rider confidence in numerous street riding situations. And a relaxed, upright riding position offers a high level of machine control as well as a good vantage ahead.
Kawasaki’s top-level electronic rider support systems, enhanced with feedback from a compact Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), allow riders to enjoy fun, sporty riding on the Versys 1000 with confidence.
Complementing an upper cowling and wide fairings that provide enhanced weather protection and comfort for longer rides, the Versys 1000 comes packed with premium touring features and the latest technology to give you and your passengers a convenient and comfortable ride whether you’re touring mile after mile of open road or taking on busy city streets.
Advanced technology and special equipment available on the Versys 1000 S take the Versys riding experience to the next level. Kawasaki Quick Shifter, LED cornering lights, integrated Riding Modes and smartphone connectively are all standard features on the S model.
