Kawasaki Versys 1000: Design And Performance
The Versys 1000 is a versatile sport-touring motorcycle with a comfortable upright riding position and wind protection. With a comfy seat and adjustable handlebars, it's easy to find your ideal riding position.
It features a powerful 1,000cc engine for cruising and passing, along with 17-inch wheels. Remarkably, it's still available in markets like the UK.
The bike is powered by a 1,043cc inline-four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, delivering 118.2bhp at 9,000rpm and 102Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. It has a 6-speed manual transmission with an assist and slipper clutch for smoother gear changes and to prevent rear wheel lock-up during downshifting.
