Pune, January 29, 2015: Kawasaki proudly presents the Versys1000, that is highly popular in the European market. The new Versys1000 offers maximum riding enjoyment across a wide variety of street riding situations. Whether riding solo or two-up, around the corner or around the globe, this fun-to-ride road sports bike’s unique combination of a highly responsive In-Line Four engine tuned for flexibility, and a nimble chassis fitted with dynamic suspension will have riders grinning in their helmets. Add in the upright riding position and you have a package that really comes into its own on twisty mountain roads. For 2015, its new styling package better reflects this fun, sporty nature, while a number of updates to the chassis and a host of new accessory items make it easier for Versys
owners to ride longer and farther.
Both the Versys1000’s engine and chassis were designed to maximize rider enjoyment on the street. Its 1,043 cm3 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 accommodating a variety of riding styles. The almost zen-like serenity is complemented by a relaxed, upright riding position that offers a high level of machine control as well as a good vantage ahead. The nimble aluminum chassis and sporty 17” wheels enable aggressive sport riding when the mood suits. In India, the bike will be imported as completely built units (CBU) from Japan and will be retailed through the standalone showrooms of Kawasaki in Pune, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and also in Kolkata. The bike will be priced at Rs.1,290,000(ex-Showroom in Pune) .
