2018 Kawasaki Versys 650 launched in India. The Kawasaki Versys 650 is priced at Rs 6.50 lakh ex-showroom (India). The new 2018 Kawasaki Versys 650 is available for booking in showrooms across the country with deliveries expected to start in the coming weeks.
The 2018 Kawasaki Versys is mostly unchanged from the 2017 model with the only major change being the graphics.
The Versys 650 adventure tourer motorcycle retains the green and black colour scheme seen in the 2017 model along with the adjustable windscreen and the instrument console with the digital gear position indicator.
The 2018 Kawasaki Versys remains unchanged mechanically as well and continues to draw power from a 649cc parallel twin engine that cranks out 68bhp @ 8,500rpm and 64Nm of torque @ 7,000rpm. The liquid cooled engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The Kawasaki Versys features a diamond frame made from high-tensile steel and features 41mm inverted telescopic front forks up front with adjustable rebound damping and adjustable preload along with the offset laydown monoshock with remote spring preload adjustment at the rear.
Braking duties are handled by two 300mm petal discs at the front and a single 250mm unit at the rear which is helped along by ABS. The Versys 650 rides on 17-inch alloy wheels which are fitted with 120/70 ZR17 M/C (front) and 160/60 ZR17 M/C (rear) tyres.
The only difference between the 2018 and 2017 models of the Kawasaki Versys 650 is a set of new graphics. The fact that a new version of the mid-sized adventure tourer is said to be currently under development may just be the reason why the changes on the 2018 Versys 650 are so subtle.
