Kawasaki India Motorcycle has silently launched the Versys 1000 BS6 in the India market. The touring motorcycle now retails at a price of Rs 10.99 lakh, ex-showroom (India). The 2020 Versys has received a hike of Rs 10,000 over its BS4 counterpart.
Apart from a cleaner engine update, visually the motorcycle remains same and has not received any new features as well. The 2020 Versys 1000 continues to be offered in two dual-tone paint schemes: Pearl Stardust White/Metallic Spark Black, and Candy Lime Green/Metallic Spark Black.
The Kawasaki Versys 1000 is powered by a BS6 compliant 1,043 cc, liquid-cooled, in-line four engine. It produces a maximum power of 118bhp at 9,000rpm and a peak torque of 102Nm at 7,500 rpm, and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox with slip-assist clutch. The same engine is also expected to make its way on the upcoming Ninja 1000 BS6 model. However, the Versys's engine is in a different state of tune to offer stronger low and mid-end torque, to suit its adventure tourer nature.
The Versys 1000 features a host of electronic rider aids. These include IMU based (KCMF) Kawasaki Cornering Management Function, which will help the rider to take corners with full confidence while the motorcycle adjusts brake force, and engine power to offer smooth transition from acceleration to braking and back again. It also includes (KTRC) Kawasaki Traction Control, (KIBS) Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock brakes, and standard electronic cruise control.
The Kawasaki Versys is a huge motorcycle and weighs 255 Kilograms with a 21-litre fuel tank. The dimensions of the motorcycle read as 2,270mm in length, 895mm in width, 1,400mm in height and features a wheelbase of 1,520mm. The adventure motorcycle sits 150mm above the ground and features a minimum seat height of 840mm.
Speaking about the Versys 1000's looks, it features twin-LED headlamps with a beak that makes for an aggressive front-fascia. Both the rider and the pillion-rider seats are wide and long that supports longer journeys on the motorcycle. Other features include an adjustable wind-screen, semi-digital instrument cluster with analogue tachometer, and a DC charging socket placed next to the instrument console.
The suspension duties on the motorcycle are handled by a 43mm USD fork with 150mm travel, and a mono-shock setup at the rear with 152mm travel. Both units are fully adjustable for rebound damping and spring preload. Braking is done via dual 310mm disc brakes at the front and a 250mm disc brake at the rear.
